Slovenia Updates RoHS Starting from June 2019
Placing or use of certain dangerous substances and preparations (ROHS) on the Slovenian market is regulated by the Ordinance on Restricting the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (published in the Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia, Uradni List № 102/2012) issued by the Minister of Health.
This Regulation lays down rules and special conditions for the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) in accordance with Directive 2011/65/EC.
The regulations are based on the Rules issued by the Minister of Health.
On May 17, 2019, the Slovenian Ministry of Health published Uradni List № 32/2019 (the Rule) which approved amendment to the Uradni List № 102/2012 restricting the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment, the Slovenian RoHS Recast Implementation.
The amended rule aims to further align Slovenian law with EU legislation by implementing all recent amendments to Directive 2011/65/EU, that is, Directive (EU) 2019/169 to Directive (EU) 2019/178 inclusive. It therefore extends the list of exemptions for banned substances in electrical and electronic equipment (on specific exemptions for lead and cadmium).
The Rule entered into force on June 1, 2019 and will be applicable starting from March 1, 2020. The only exception is entry 42 in Annex III to Directive 2011/65/EC. It will come into effect from July 22, 2019.
