    RoHS exemption changes in 2011-time to check impact?


      2011 will witness several changes to the list of RoHS exemptions.

      Exemptions 19, 20 and 21 will expire on 1 June.

      Until 31 December there had been no limitation of use on 1a, 1b, 1e, 2a1,

      2a2, 2a3, 2a5, 2b3, 2b4, 3a, 3b, 3c, 4a, 4b1, 4b2, 4b3, 4c1, 4c2, 4c3.

      However, after that date, new stricter maximum values / restriction enter into force.

      Many exemptions have expiry dates and so will automatically expire unless a

      request for an extension or renewal is made an agreed.


      The current list of exemptions is attached
