The EU Commission is seeking feedback on a draft delegated directive that would exempt certain rheometers from the requirement to meet mercury restrictions. The proposal follows an evaluation that substitution of mercury in melt pressure transducers for capillary rheometers at temperatures over 300°C and pressures over 1000 bar are currently scientifically and technically impracticable.

If adopted as planned, exemption 49 would be added to Annex IV of the RoHS Directive as follows:

Mercury in melt pressure transducers for capillary rheometers at temperatures over 300°C and pressures over 1000bar

The exemption would apply to Category 9 and would expire on 31 December 2024 (unless subject to renewal).

Interested parties may submit feedback until 9 January 2023.
