As part of the RoHS recast the European Commission will review both scope and additional substance restrictions within 3 years.
On a separate note several of the product areas excluded as part of RoHS 2, could potentially be captured in 2019 under the open scope category 11.
Examples could include:
+ Equipment designed to go in to space
+ Large-scale stationary industrial tools
+ Large-scale fixed installations
+ Means of transport
+ Non-road mobile machinery for professional use
+ R&D equipment only available on a B-to-B basis
+ Medical devices and In Vitro Diagnostic devices
