Restriction on Use of Hazardous Substances Extended

From 22 July 2014, the scope of the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive has been extended to include a range of new electrical devices.

The additions include most medical devices and control instruments, including thermostats and smoke detectors, and the new rules will affect manufacturers bringing such devices to the market.
