Study for the analysis of impacts from RoHS2 on non-road mobile machinery without an on-board power source, on windows and doors with electric functions, and on the refurbishment of medical devices
Final report - Study
The Commission has requested a detailed assessment of the impacts of RoHS 2 on the following three areas of review, with a view to a possible legal adjustment: - non-road mobile machinery; - windows and doors with electric functions; and - the refurbishment of medical devices. Against the background detailed above, the following objectives were specified for this project: - Assessment of the impacts of RoHS 2 on the three specific EEE sectors / economic operation. This assessment shall include: - Outline of the scope of the problem in terms of the products or operations of relevance in the... context of compliance with RoHS 2 Article 4(1); - Compilation of information and data collected from stakeholders and from additional public sources; - Attempt to quantify the problem on the basis of available data concerning the type and volume of products; where quantified data is not available, this shall be done on a qualitative basis; - Identification of possible economic, social and environmental impacts of the current situation and their magnitude, where available data allows a quantification; - Suggestion of possible solutions, targeted at alleviating adverse impacts where such are to be expected; and - Preparation of a report to present collected information, assessment, conclusions and recommendations. - Direct consultation with stakeholders aimed at collecting information on the three areas of review.
