Are you unsure if the CE RoHS II Directive applies to your product? The 1st step is to answer these two questions:

  1. Do you want to sell your product in the European Union? If yes
  2. Is it an electrical product? The RoHS II Directive only applies to electrical products.

If you make an electrical product and you sell it in the European Union, it is very likely that your product must comply with the RoHS II Directive. For a couple of product types, the RoHS II Directive is not mandatory until July of 2019. There are also a few product types that are exempt.

A list of the product types that must comply with the RoHS II Directive is provided below. What type number is your product? Only Types 9 & 11 have future effective dates. The RoHS II Directive is already mandatory for all other product types - it must be included on your Declaration of Conformity (DoC) and in your Technical Construction File (TCF).

Applicable Product Types:

  1. Large household appliances
  2. Small household appliances
  3. IT and telecommunications equipment
  4. Consumer equipment
  5. Lighting equipment
  6. Electrical and electronic tools
  7. Electrical toys, leisure and sports equipment
  8. Medical devices (mandatory for IVD as of July 22, 2016; mandatory for all other medical devices as of July 22, 2014)
  9. Monitoring and control instruments including industrial monitoring and control instruments (mandatory for this category as of July 22, 2017) 10) Automatic dispensers 11) Other electrical & electronic products not covered by any of the categories above and not exempted below (mandatory for this category as of July 22,2019)

Exceptions: The following product types and their components are exempt. If an exception applies to your product, it should be properly documented in your Technical Construction File.
