What Is RoHS?

The Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive bans a list of hazardous substances from all Electrical and Electronic Equipment sold after July 2006. The main substance restriction is Lead (Pb) but there are also other substances that need to be removed. More details can be found at

RoHS is a directive issued January 27, 2003 by the European Commission (EC).

The RoHS directive requires that six hazardous substances be removed from all electrical and electronic equipment. The substances may be present incidentally at certain levels as long as they are declared. The six substances are Cadmium (Cd), hexavalent Chromium (CR VI), Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). The maximum concentration of Cd is 0.01% by weight of homogeneous material, and 0.1% by weight for the other five substances. "Homogeneous material" means a material that cannot be mechanically disjointed into different materials (ref. 2). A substance is "present incidentally" if it was not intentionally added. Some exemptions are declared in the RoHS annex, such as Hg in fluorescent lamps.
