The European Union published a new amendment to the EU RoHS directive 2011/65/EU. It is the Commission Delegated Directive (EU) 2021/647 regarding an exemption for electric and electronic initiators of explosives for civil purposes.
What are the Exempted Substances?
RoHS restricts ten groups of substances. Lead and lead compounds are one of them. Since various applications require lead without easy replacements, the European Commission maintains and regularly revisits a list of exemptions.
