RoHS Directive: BeST submits comments to the review proposal

In February 2022, the European Commission published a call for evidence for an impact assessment on the review of Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS Directive) on the restriction of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE).


BeST has submitted its views to the above-mentioned public consultation underlining the need for a more holistic and integrated approach considering the overall chemicals legislation, coupled with adequate socio-economic impact assessments to understand potential benefits and drawbacks of the policy options envisaged in reference to the competitiveness and resilience of the EU’s supply chains.


Going into details, BeST highlighted the following limits of the current RoHS Directive:

  • Its redundancy in relation to the REACH framework;

  • The absence of a clearly established and transparent assessment methodology;

  • The excessive complexity of its exemption procedure.
