The RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC restricts the use of lead, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, mercury and polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenylethers (PBDE) for electrical and electronic equipment put on the market since July 1st 2006.

 The recast RoHS (RoHS II) Directive 2011/65/EU maintains these restrictions and extends them including introducing a new scope Category 11 that includes all electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) not covered by any of the other 10 categories in the scope of the recast RoHS Directive after a period of 8 years. In addition, the recast RoHS Directive establishes a methodology for reviewing the existing six substance restrictions and for introducing new restrictions. The recast RoHS directive is a standalone directive and not a derivative of the WEEE directive.

RoHS and RoHS2 directive implementation requires data about each item and item. The collection and information management procedure is long and convoluted, and requiring endless internal work within the organization, as well as many interfaces with suppliers.

The expertise of  SBS, combined with the CDM software, will help the company to solve the RoHS & RoHS2 compliance.
