RoHS - Directive on the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment


Put into effect for European Union member countries in 2006, RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC restricts the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.

Performing necessary tests within the company and at accredited laboratories, Arçelik has achieved full compliance even before the effective date of the directive by establishing the Compliance Management System to ensure that the suppliers are in compliance with this directive.

Furthermore, infrastructure works have been performed and Arçelik has complied with the 2011/65/EU RoHS Recast Directive which superseded the 2002/95/EC directive on January 2, 2013.

Due to the regulation of EU hazardous chemicals, 4 phthalate group materials (DEHP, BBP, DIBP, DBP), which are prohibited under REACH, will be covered under the scope of RoHS as of 22 July 2019.
