valerie Hi, I'm a sales manager at a household appliances manufacturer headquartered in Hangzhou, China.
It has come to our attention recently that from July 22 of this year (“effective date”), the restrictions on four new types of substances (DEHP, BBP, DBP, DIBP) and their maximum concentration values tolerated, which set forth by Annex II of 2015/863 (“RoHS 2.0”), will come into effect. In order to ensure our compliance with RoHS 2.0, we sincerely hope that the competent authority will provide some guidance on our questions as follows.
1. Assuming that some of our non-compliant products (for example, contain DIBP more than 0.1%) have been sold to local importers and distributors, but not been made available for customers on the Union market yet. After the effective date,
1.1 Is it legal for the importers and distributors to sell those non-compliant products?
1.2 If it is illegal to continue to sell, who will be responsible to withdraw those non-compliant products? Manufacturer, importer or distributor?
1.3 If it is illegal to continue to sell, what kinds of measures might be taken by competent authorities upon manufacturer, importer and distributor respectively? In particular, under what circumstances will the economic operators be required to recall the product or pay the penalties?
2. Our European maintenance center is located at Netherland. After the effective date, some products sold before the effective date will be sent to the maintenance center for repair service. Will it be legal for our maintenance center to use non-compliant spare parts to replace the old ones on such products?
3. After the effective date, some products sold before the effective date will be sent back to Hangzhou factory for replacement service. Will it be legal for our Hangzhou factory to send a non-compliant product back to the customer on the Union market?

kormend Seeking information regarding noise pollution and waste management. The respected companies have won EU projects regarding dangerous waste disposal with significant financial help from the EU. The amount was nearly two million Euros. The agreement was to create safe and environmental compliance area considering residential health and safety. There are constant work within the residential area, where damages occur to human health and their houses. There are also two schools nearby to consider. We have contacted the local environmental agency who has done the noise searches for us however by the local PM influence they are delaying the written confirmation of the damaging numbers and wont issue the official documents. Their advise was to take the companies to court. However due to the local agreement between the companies and the town officials we have very little chance to address any rights we may have. We as well as the neighbourhood is collecting photographic and video evidence on all the hazardous materials they handle as well as the noise level their create. We would like to write an official complaints to EU environmental agency who can take appropriate action on the matter as regretfully this little hungarian town officials are too corrupt and their business model has been built on the EU finance project for their personal benefit rather than public interest.
your guidance on the matter is appreciated and i looking forward to address all the photos and videos accordingly.

DanteMaschio doubts about the reported data on the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (UWWTD)

Hello,

I am working on a database based on the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (UWWTD) data reported by the EU Member States. Here there are some doubts I can not solve with the information available on the EEA website.

General questions:
- Can we understand Individual Appropriate System (IAS) as an on-site treatment?
- According to the descriptions of the updated tables on the web now the number of real inhabitants is reported in the agglomeration table. However these data are not up to date. It will be available?

In relation to some tables:
1. T_UWWTPs:
(uwwloadentering) Is there a possibility to have the influence flow in m3 /d?
(uwwstate) How can I understand the inactive and temporarily inactive state for each uwwtps point?
(uwwdateclosing and uwwendlife) Could I understand that records prior to the current date are points that are no working now?
(uwwotherteatment) Which is the difference between Tertiary treatment (UV, Cl, O3,…) and Other – more stringent treatment?
(uwwperformance) How can I understand the Not Relevant registers?

2. T_agglomerations
(agglstate) How can I understand the inactive or temporarily inactive state for each agglomeration?
(aggendlife) What it meant that an agglomeration has reached its end of life?

3. T_UWWTPAgglom
When it is an imperative to report the relationship UWWTPs:Agglomeration?

4. T_UWWdischargepoints
(dcpstate) How can I understand the inactive and temporarily inactive state of a discharge point?

5. T_UWWemissionload:
Why there is so little information about the polluting charges (BOD, COD, TSS) that come in and out of UWWTPs?


I would also be useful if you can send me the Spanish contact who report and work on the data related to this directive.

Thanks,

Dante
