In accordance with point 34 of the Interinstitutional Agreement on Better Law-Making (18), Member States are invited to draw up, for themselves and in the interest of the Union, their own tables indicating, as far as possible, the correlation between this Directive and its transposition measures, and to publish those tables. Mercury used in other discharge lamps for particular purposes not specifically mentioned in this Annex RoHS PCB display technologies exceed traditional formulations in the areas of thermal shock, solder paste pressure, contact resistance and aluminum wire power, and close to their performance in other attributes. [63] A classic example of such a chemical is asbestos. It is incredibly easy to disassemble, easy to use and has very useful properties as a flame retardant. But asbestos, unknown to the public at the time, is a very dangerous carcinogen when crushed into dust (z.B. by a power tool) and then inhaled. As a result, hundreds of thousands of people have adverse health conditions such as lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis. manufacturers keep a record of EEE and non-compliant product recalls and inform distributors thereof; 4. Paragraph 1 shall not apply to cables or spare parts for the repair, re-use, updating of functions or modernisation of capacity of the following: the Commission shall decide on a request for an extension of a derogation no later than six months before the expiry of the existing derogation, unless special circumstances justify further time limits. The existing exemption remains valid until the Commission decides on the request for an extension. California passed the Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003 (EWRA). This law prohibits the sale, after 1 January 2007, of electronic devices that cannot be sold under the European RoHS Directive, but within a much narrower scope, which covers LCDs, CRTs, etc., and which covers only the four heavy metals limited by RoHS.

The EEEA also has a limited disclosure obligation. Products falling within the scope of RoHS 2 must bear the CE marking, the name and address of the manufacturer, and a serial or batch number. Parties who need more detailed information on conformity can find it in the EU declaration of conformity of the product drawn up by the manufacturer responsible for the design (trade mark proprietor) or the EU representative. The regulation also requires that most actors in the product supply chain (importer and distributor) keep and verify this document, and ensure that a compliance process has been followed and that the correct linguistic translation is provided for the instructions. The manufacturer must keep certain proof of conformity documents, which are designated as technical documentation or technical record. The Directive obliges the manufacturer to demonstrate conformity by using test data for all materials or by complying with a harmonised standard (IEC 63000:2016 is the only standard at the time of writing). Regulators may request this file or, more likely, certain data, as it will likely be very large.
