Final version - Study
Under Framework Contract no. ENV.A.2/FRA/2015/0008, a consortium led by Oeko-Institut was commissioned by DG Environment of the European Commission to assess socio-economic impacts of substitution of certain mercury-based lamps currently benefitting of exemptions in Annex III to Directive 2011/65/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (“the RoHS Directive”). The work has been undertaken by the Oeko-Institut and has been peer reviewed by Fraunhofer Institute IZM.
