This report to the Committee on the Restriction of Hazardous Substances provides a technical assessment of the exemptions provided in Annex III of the Directive 2011/65/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 8 June 2011 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances (RoHS) in electrical and electronic equipment for the following fluorescent lamp types:

• Compact fluorescent lamps which are not integrally ballasted (CFLni),

• Linear fluorescent lamps of with tube diameter ≥ 9 mm and ≤ 17 mm (e.g. T5), and

• Linear fluorescent lamps of with tube diameter > 17 mm and ≤ 28 mm (e.g. T8).

This assessment does not address T12 linear fluorescent lamps or integrally ballasted compact fluorescent lamps (CFLi) as both are phased out on 1 September 2021 under the recent ecodesign lighting regulation, Commission Regulation EU 2019/20202

This report has been developed jointly by the Swedish Energy Agency and CLASP.
