The UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has updated its guidance on how to apply for a RoHS exemption.

From 6 April 2023, an application fee of £39,721 will be charged to apply for a new exemption or renew an existing one. Manufacturers who wish to place their electrical and electronic products containing restricted substances on the market in Great Britain should review current exemptions and applications.

Applications must be submitted at least 18 months before the product is intended to be placed on the market. Manufacturers should also review if substitutions for the restricted substances are feasible.
