WEEE & RoHS Scope Guide
1st Jan, 2006

This guide has been drafted by a special working group set up by Orgalime and European Sector Associations in the electrical and electronic and telecommunication industries (including the ICE industry, white and brown goods, lightings, cables, etc.) representing nearly the complete range of products falling under the scope of the WEEE and RoHS Directives.

The guide aims to help authorities and producers to determine more precisely the scope of the two Directives.  It provides interpretations, criteria and decision trees that help the reader to determine whether products falling in 'grey areas' do actually fall within the scope of these Directives or not.
