    The RoHS directive took effect on July 1st 2006. RoHS is often referred to as the lead-free directive, but it restricts the use of the following six substances:

    • Protect human health and the environment
    • Complement the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive (2002/96/EC)
    1. Lead (Pb) Solders, termination coatings, paints, pigment, PVC stabilizer, batteries
    2. Mercury (Hg) Fluorescent lamps, batteries, sensors, relays
    3. Cadmium (Cd) Coatings, solders, semiconductors, contacts, PVC stabilizer, pigments
    4. Hexavalent chromium (chromium xxx or Cr6+) Coatings to prevent corrosion (on zinc,aluminum or in paints)
    5. Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) Flame retardant in certain plastics (no longer produced)
    6. Polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) Flame retardant in certain plastics

    Note that batteries are not included within the scope of RoHS, therefore NiCd, Lead-acid and Mercury batteries are permitted despite the use of restricted substances.It does not apply to fixed industrial plant and tools.
