SEMINAR Rohs Directive - Towards the 2019 Open Scope

Milano, sede ANIMA
Of interest to:

ANIMA Confindustria Meccanica Varia, in collaboration with ICIM, promotes, as a first in-depth study, an information seminar on the 2011 / 65 / EU 'RoHS' Directive which represents the legislative reference for the limitation of the use of certain hazardous substances in the equipment electrical and electronic.

As a novelty, the 2011 / 65 / EU Directive introduces, starting from July of 2019, an "open-scope" that will ensure that part of the mechanical industry products will have to comply with the requirements of the Directive.

The 2011 / 65 / CE 'RoHS2' Directive has established rules regarding the restriction of the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) in order to contribute to the protection of human health and the environment, including recovery and disposal ecologically correct waste from EEE.

Compared to the first RoHS Directive (2002 / 95 / CE Directive) the RoHS2 is presented as a separate directive (and no longer interconnected with the WEEE Directive, with a substantially extended scope with the addition of a new category that includes all EEE not covered by any of the other 10 categories envisaged (open scope).

Purpose of the seminar is to take stock of the application of the Directive, in view of the 22 July 2019, date on which the restrictions will be applicable to all EEE.
