NEMI: RoHS/WEEE conversion 'well underway'.
The trade group is basing its findings on a RoHS/lead-free summit held in October at which scores of companies traded insights on the European Union's Restriction on Use of Certain Hazardous Substances and Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directives.
One primary concern: how companies will be able to prove compliance--to regulatory bodies and to their customers. The directives are not explicit on this point, and the EU's Technical Adaptation Committee, responsible for providing guidance on RoHS implementation, has not yet made recommendations, NEMI said in a press statement.
Presentations from the summit and reports from breakout groups are available at nemi.org/newsroom/Presentations/RoHS_summit.html.
