Information on “RoHS”

The original EC Directive "2002/95/EC (Restriction of Hazardous Substances – RoHS 1)" has been replaced by EU Directive "2011/65/EU (RoHS 2)".

The "DELEGATED DIRECTIVE (EU) 2015/863 OF THE COMMISSION (RoHS 3)" from 31 March

2015 modifies and expands "Annex II of Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2)" of the European Parliament only. EU Directive "2011/65/EU (RoHS 2)" thus remains authoritative.

The comprehensive substance restrictions of the directive "2011/65/EU (RoHS 2)" have been implemented in national legislation in Germany with the "Ordinance for the use of hazardous materials in electrical and electronic devices" – (ElektroStoffV).

"ElektroStoffV" came into force on 19 April 2013.

We, RK Rose+Krieger GmbH, guarantee the conformity as per "ElektroStoffV" and "RoHS 2" and "RoHS 3" in accordance with the use of our products for their intended purpose.

Our suppliers were and are integrated into this continuous process.

Our installation instructions have been and will be currently being adapted to new requirements, as necessary.


Yours sincerely,
