...and where will RoHS be Tomorrow?
As made clear in the IPC and our ruminations, the consumer industry is supportive of RoHS expansion. And the EU is willing to oblige. The rapporteur is now recommending that all electrical equipment be covered under RoHS and all brominated and chlorinated flame retardants be banned (see the full proposal and arguments.) Amendments are possible until end of February and an initial vote is not expected until late April, so stay tuned. For more information on RoHS, please contact Craig Hillman, firstname.lastname@example.org.
