MedTech Europe have previously requested information on mercury lamps used in the medical device and IVD sectors.
It was noted previously that under RoHS exemption 1(f)-II and 2(b)4-I for neonatal jaundice treatment, we have no uses of mercury lamps in these exemptions.
Further information has been requested by LightingEurope as to the reason for this, primarily whether this is due to LEDs being used instead of mercury lamps, or for another reason.
If any members are using this exemption under EU RoHS, an exemption renewal will be required or you risk losing the exemption for your products. This may also impact GB RoHS.
Where members are using lamps for this indication, please provide feedback to Ashleigh (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 10 May for this to be passed to MedTech Europe.
This information has kindly been provided by MedTech Europe.
