The European Union's RoHS legislation was enacted by the EU parliament to control the distribution of certain hazardous substances. RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) Directive 2002/95/EC will ban the use of specific hazardous substances starting on 1 July 2006.
The RoHS directive restricts the introduction of new electrical and electronic equipment containing more than agreed levels of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants.
