The European Commission is almost a year late on providing their decisions on the RoHS exemptions that affect our industry.
The attached report will help you make sense of the review on exemptions for lead in Steel (6a.), Aluminum (6b.), and Brass (6c.) as per the recommendations by the consultants. This information will help you understand and evaluate the likely usage and availability of these leaded materials for our industry going forward.
Existing exemptions remain in effect until the European Commission takes action on the consultants’ report.
