EU 2015/863 (RoHS 3)

RoHS 3 (EU Directive 2015/863) adds Category 11 (catch-all) products and adds four new restricted substances - all phthalates. The four phthalates are mainly used as insulation plasticizers, and are on the REACH list of SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern). The expanded list for RoHS 3 is thus as follows:

REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals. It is a regulation of the European Union.

  • Regulation number 1907/2006

  • Concerns chemicals and their safe use

  • Has a defined process that must be followed for risk and chemical management

  • New substances are added to the candidate list every 6-9 month

  • Proposed SVHCs (Substance of very high concern) are put to a 45-day public comment

Chemicals that are "substances of very high concern" (SVHC) are to be phased out and replaced with safer alternative chemicals. See the REACH Restricted Substances List.
