RoHS - Proposals for further proceedings in trialogue negotiations

Published: 5 November 2010

Policies & Issues: Environment

Considering that the European Parliament and Council are negotiating on a first reading agreement on the Commission proposal, Orgalime would like to contribute to the debate.

In our Position Paper: Main priorities and proposals for further proceedings on RoHS recast of 19 July 2010, we expressed our fundamental requests when shaping the RoHS recast, which are:

• A harmonised and non ambiguous scope with a comprehensive set of exclusions

• An alignment of RoHS with REACH & NLF

• Clear criteria and procedure for granting RoHS exemptions.
In addition, Orgalime would like to see the following...
