European Commission & EU Member States governments

The European Commission’s official WEEE/RoHS webpages contain information on the legislation, RoHS exemptions, stakeholders’ consultations and review procedure.

The European Commission’s Comitology Register is an official EU website where you can search for documents relating to the activities of the EU Committee that manages several aspects of the implementation of WEEE and RoHS, including RoHS exemptions and harmonization work. The EU Committee includes EU Member States governments’ representatives and chaired by the European Commission. This site can be difficult to navigate. It is important to select the ‘ENV Committee for the adaptation to scientific and technical progress and implementation of the directives on waste’ in the drop-down. Please feel free to ask for our assistance.

The UK Government provides a substantial amount of useful guidance for understanding basic WEEE/RoHS concepts in English. Please note however that this guidance concerns only the UK.
