Specified measures include expanding the regulatory scope of products containing these hazardous substances and adding hazardous substances to be restricted.

The amendment major focuses on the expansion of the scope of the electrical and electronic products (EEPs) which are subject to restrictions on the use of hazardous substances and the supplement of 4 kinds of phthalate esters to the list of hazardous substances that are restricted to use in EEPs. The consultation was concluded 10 days after the issuance of the legislative notice.
