Slovenia RoHS Update
Effective June 1, 2019
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 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.
