Commission’s public consultation on RoHS
Three new European Commission’s public consultations are currently running on the use of the mercury in different electrical equipment in the framework of RoHS Directive.
Consultations opened are:
- revoking exemptions for mercury in double-capped linear fluorescent lamps;
- exemption for mercury in general lighting lamps with a lifetime of 20,000 hours or more; and
- revoking exemptions for mercury in single capped (compact) fluorescent lamps for general purposes.
For the two first consultations the deadline for comment is 16 July 2021 and 21 July 2021 for the last one.
