Oman Applies for Extending RoHS Restriction Area

The Ministry of Commerce & Industry of Oman sent notification on the decision regarding the adoption of the EU RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU for Telecom and Medical Devices to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in July 2021. 

The Ministry issued a Decree stating that telecommunications equipment and medical devices must meet the requirements of EU RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU (as amended by Directive (EU) 2015/863 and Directive (EU) 2017/2012) with regard to RoHS restricted substances and their maximum concentration values tolerated by weight in homogeneous materials. The following requirements were established in the document:

  • cadmium (0.01%)
  • lead (0.1%)
