Where is RoHS Today...

The last half of 2009 was rife with predictions on the status of RoHS2, including the mysterious 11th Category, exemption recommendations, and DfR's own insight. However, all speculation ceased when the proposed RoHS2 was released. While a more complete list of changes is provided here, the biggest ones are:
• Medical and Monitoring / Control Equipment will be covered
• The list of banned substances has NOT changed
• Compliance to RoHS will now require the CE mark
• All lead (Pb) solder/plating exemptions remained, but will be phased out in four years
