The European Commission is currently accepting remarks as part of a consultation exercise on two RoHS exemption requests. The deadline for submissions is January 9, 2015.

Registered stakeholders, listed here, are invited to submit their comments by e-mail to or by mail to the address listed here.

The exemption requests are:

2014-1: Cadmium Anodes in Hersch cells for high-sensitivity oxygen sensors
2014-2: Lead in solders used to make electrical connections to temperature measurement sensors designed to be used periodically at temperature below -150C.

These requests for exemption from the substance restrictions of Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS-2) will be evaluated on the basis of the criteria for exemptions in Art. 5 (1) (a) RoHS 2.
