Amendments include the following:

1.       Pipe organs and non-road mobile machinery with a traction drive powered by an external power source are excluded from the scope of the Directive.

2.       It has been clearly specified that the Directive will apply to all other electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) that was outside the scope of Directive 2002/95/EC and which is placed on the market from 22 July 2019 and that the maximum exemption period for this category is 5 years.
