The RoHS Directive stands for "the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment". This Directive bans the placing on the EU market of new electrical and electronic equipment containing more than agreed levels of lead(Pb), cadmium(Cd), mercury(Hg), hexavalent chromium(Cr-VI), polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants.
The directive comes into force across Europe on July 1st 2006, from this date on all new electronic and electrical equipment manufactured for resale within Europe must meet the guidelines as set out by the directive, however the directive does reference a list of categories and exemptions to be considered by producers (refer to your local RoHS legislation for details).
