RESTRICTION OF HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES
The Restriction of Specific Hazardous substances in the European market is controlled or governed by RoHS with the Directive 2002/95/EC. The standard defines the permissible limits for specific elements of materials. Any business that has its products in electronic and electrical domains which are targeted to the European market must be complaint with this directive. RoHS is also closely related to Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) as it concentrates on environment friendly aspects wherein recycling and reuse are also given equal importance.
