FAQ RoHS II
1. Are components subject to the RoHS II regulation?
From July 22, 2019, the directive applies to all categories of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE).
Passive Components are not under the scope of RoHS II. As such, the directive’s approach of addressing material contents and restrictions of material use in a given finished product only indirectly implies requirements to those of its parts, which contain the restricted substances. EPCOS products are made for use in equipment mentioned in the directive.
