"the restriction of the use of certain hazardous
substances in electrical and electronic equipment".
This Directive bans the placing on the EU market of
new electrical and electronic equipment containing
more than agreed upon levels of lead, cadmium,
mercury, hexavalent chromium, PBB and PBDE flame
