Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) is a European Union (EU) directive restricting certain “hazardous” substances used in electrical and electronic equipment in European countries. RoHS ensures electrical/electronic products used in Europe are RoHS compliant in not exceeding the maximum concentration levels for hazardous substances listed in the directive.
