RoHS - Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive - RoHS - Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive
Wed, April 05 2006 | 1:31AM | PermaLink Feedback?
Best learn to love all that RoHS is and means, especially if you're involved in the tech industry. Wikipedia has a good summary of the laws, and what they mean to different industries, so pop on over and give the Wiki a read.

"The Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) 2002/95/EC was adopted in February 2003 by the European Union. The RoHS directive takes effect on July 1, 2006, but is not a law; it is simply a directive. This directive restricts the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment. It is closely linked with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) 2002/96/EC which sets collection, recycling and recovery targets for electrical goods and is part of a legislative initiative to solve the problem of huge amounts of toxic e-waste.

Each European Union member state will adopt its own enforcement and implementation policies using the directive as a guide. Therefore, there could be as many different versions of the law as there are states in the EU."
