Status Report on RoHS Leaded Materials Used in Machining Exemptions 6a., 6b., 6c.

Wednesday January 11, 2017

The European Commission is almost a year late on providing their decisions on the RoHS exemptions that affect our industry.

PMPA members can get the latest sensemaking on the report on exemptions for lead in Steel (6a.), Aluminum (6b.), and Brass (6c.) as recommended by the consultants.  This information will help you understand and evaluate the likely usage and availability of these leaded materials for our industry going forward.

Existing exemptions remain in effect until the European Commission takes action on the consultants’ report.
