Korea is one of the most important markets for electrical & electronic (E&E) products. Like the European Union (EU), Korea has its own version of the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive called 'K-RoHS'. K-RoHS, the 'Act on Resource Circulation of Electrical and Electronic Equipment and Vehicles' is a combined regulation including RoHS, waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and End of Life Vehicles (ELV) directives. Manufacturers or importers of E&E products and vehicles in Korea must follow the K-RoHS requirements.


The objectives of the webinar are to briefly introduce the Korean E&E market and to provide information on the legal system of 'Act' and the enforcement decrees for K-RoHS. The EcoAS system, the control system of K-RoHS in Korea, will also be presented.
