Directive 2000/53/EC and ELV

February 19, 2018

Directive 2000/53/EC of the European Parliament and the Council regarding ELV (or End-of-Life) vehicles, according to which cars must be almost fully recyclable, defines areas that are of interest to distributors of electronic components that serve the automotive industry. On November 15, 2017, the exemptions in Annex 2 were amended – specifically the exemptions for lead and lead compounds (e.g. lead in dielectric ceramic materials, lead in solders) where the impact is deemed to be significant; these can be found in the exemptions 8 and 10 listed therein.
