New standard for the RoHS Directive scheduled to take effect

The new EN 63000:2018 standard will now finally supersede the current version effective as of 18 November 2021. Even if the content of the new standard hardly differs from its predecessor, formally affected declarations of conformity must be updated.

As early as 15 May 2020, the EU Commission opted in Decision (EU) 2020/659 for an update of the EN 50581:2012 standard, which was still valid at the time. The new EN 63000:2018 standard will now finally supersede the current version effective as of 18 November 2021. Even if the content of the new standard hardly differs from its predecessor, formally affected declarations of conformity must be updated.
