The RoHS Directive aims to restrict certain dangerous substances commonly used in electrical and electronic equipment.  Any RoHS compliant component is tested for the presence of Lead, Cadmium, Mercury, Haxa-valent chromium, Polybrominated biphenyls, and polybrominated diphenyl ethers.

In an effort to close loopholes in RoHS 1.0, in May 2006 the European Commission was asked to review two currently excluded product categories (monitoring and control equipment, and medical devices) for future inclusion in the products that must fall into RoHS compliance.  In addition the commission entertains requests for deadline extensions or for exclusions by substance categories, substance location or weight.   New legislation was published in the official journal in July, 2011 which supersedes this exemption.

The RoHS 2.0 directive (2011/65/EU) is an evolution of the original directive and became law on 21 July 2011 and took effect on 2 January 2013.  It addresses the same substances as the original directive while improving regulatory conditions and legal clarity.

It also requires periodic re-evaluations that facilitate gradual broadening of its requirements to cover additional electronic and electrical equipment, cables and spare parts
