The European Union Restriction on the use of certain Hazardous Substances Directive came into force on July 1, 2006. From this date on, producers of certain categories of electrical and electronic equipment will not be able to place on the market any new products that contain six banned substances unless specific exemptions apply.
The six substances restricted under the RoHS Directive are:
- Lead - (Pb)
- Mercury - (Hg)
- Hexavalent chromium - (Cr(VI))
- Cadmium - (Cd)
- Polybrominated biphenyl flame retardants - (PBB)
- Polybrominated diphenyl ether flame retardants - (PBDE)
The maximum concentrations are 0.1% (except for Cadmium which is limited to 0.01%) by weight of homogeneous material. This means that the limits do not apply to the weight of the finished product, or even to a component, but to any single
substance that could (theoretically) be separated mechanically — for example, the sheath on a cable or the tinning on a component lead.
