RoHS II FAQ
1. Are components subject to the RoHS II regulation?
The directive applies to:
- Large household appliances
- Small household appliances
- IT and telecommunications equipment
- Consumer equipment
- Lighting equipment
- Electrical and electronic tools (with the exception of large-scale stationary industrial tools)
- Toys, leisure and sports equipment
- Medical devices (subsequently valid from July 22, 2014)
- Monitoring and control instruments including industrial monitoring and control instruments (valid from July 22, 2017)
- Automatic dispensers
- Other EEE not covered by any of the categories above (valid from July 22, 2019)
Passive Components are not under the scope of RoHS II. As such, the directive’s approach of addressing material contents and restrictions of material use in a given finished product only indirectly implies requirements to those of its parts, which contain the restricted substances. RF360 products are made for use in equipment mentioned in the directive.
