Abstract
The RoHS Directive bans lead, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, mercury, PBB and PBDE from use in electrical and electronic equipment. The ELV Directive bans the same metals from uses in vehicles. Both Directives, however, allow exemptions from these material bans under specific conditions, which are reviewed periodically. The RoHS Directive additionally allows applying for new exemptions under specific conditions. This paper reports about the conditions for exemptions, about the procedure and arguments to obtain new exemptions and the status of the review of all existing exemptions in the ELV and the RoHS Directive in 2007 and in 2008.
