Draft Commission Delegated Directive amending, for the purpose of adapting to technical and scientific progress, Annex III to Directive 2011/65/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards an exemption for the use of mercury in single capped (compact) fluorescent lamps for general lighting purposes < 30 W with a lifetime equal to or above 20 000 h (7 page(s), in English; 2 page(s), in English)
This draft Commission Delegated Directive concerns an application to renew specific and temporary exemption from the Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2) substance restrictions. The exemption is not renewed as the conditions for the exemption are no longer fulfilled (namely the substitution of mercury in the lamps categories concerned by this exemption is scientifically and technically practicable). Transitional period (expiry date) of 18 months from the adoption of the Delegated Directive by the Commission is set in line with Article 5(6) of RoHS 2.
