EU published directive to amend exemption list of ELV

2016-05-24 76

On 19 May 2016, the Official Journal of the European Union officially published Directive (EU) 2016/774 to amend exemption list of Annex II to Directive 2000/53/EC (ELV). This revision refers to item as  follows: Exemptions 8(e), 8(f), 8(g), 8(h), 8(j) and 10 (d). This Directive shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union. Member States shall adopt and publish, within six months of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union at the latest, the laws, regulations and administrative provisions necessary to comply with this Directive.

 

 

 

Requirements of Regulations

Annex II to Directive 2000/53/EC lists vehicle materials and components exempted from the prohibition set out in Article 4(2)(a) thereof. Exemptions 8(e), 8(f), 8(g), 8(h), 8(j) and 10 (d) of Annex II shall be reviewed in 2014. An assessment of technical and scientific progress has demonstrated that the use of lead in the applications covered by exemptions 8(h), 8(j) and 10(d) should not be prolonged because the use of lead in these applications has become avoidable. The assessment of technical and scientific progress has also demonstrated that the use of lead in the applications covered by exemptions 8(e), 8(f) and 8(g) remains unavoidable as substitutes have not become available yet. However, since information exists on possible future lead substitutes in these applications, it is appropriate to introduce a review date allowing to establish if the use of lead in these applications can be discontinued. These exemptions shall be reviewed in 2019.
