The History of RoHS 3
RoHS 3 describes a recasting of previous directives. In other words, it means unifying previous amendments into a new act. This process makes it easier to find information than adding more amendments.
The first EU RoHS (Directive 2002/95/EC) was adopted in 2003, followed by EU RoHS 2, (Directive 2011/65/EU) in 2011. After that, you may have heard about RoHS 3 in the context of EU Directive 2015/863. However, that was only an amendment to RoHS 2. It is known for adding four phthalates (BBP, DBP, DEHP and DIBP), bringing the count up to ten substances. Furthermore, MCCPs and TBBPA are candidates for the list because of the threat to aquatic environments and human health during waste disposal.
