The article discusses the development of a Directive 2011/65/EU, restriction of hazardous substances (RoHS2) in Europe, which focused more on validation process rather than inspection. It states that RoHS2 has turned into law on July 21, 2011 that requires manufacturers to follow obligations specifically in Module A of Decision 768/2008/EC. It also adds that the module focused on product checks and documentation which monitors the manufacturing process to develop compliance.
