In 2015, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) issued a draft for a RoHS regulation that is similar to the Europe RoHS one, with testing assessments.
This regulation was published in the Official Gazette on 27 April 2017, according to the UAE Cabinet Decision No. 10 of 2017 and came into force on January 1st, 2018.
The product scope and categories are very broad and similar to the EU RoHS one.
In a nutshell, from January 1st, 2020, most manufacturers, authorized representatives, retailers, or importers placing electrical or electronic equipment into the UAE market must confirm that none of the 10 RoHS substances are used above the permitted thresholds at the level of the homogeneous materials.
