In the Czech Republic, EU requirements on cadmium are transposed into national law. The legislation has been laid down to protect the environment from cadmium contamination. Part of this legislation has direct relevance for products imported into the EU. This document describes these product-related legislative requirements:

  1. Cadmium restriction applicable to all products and product parts where cadmium is used to (1.1) colour specific materials, (1.2) stabilize specific materials, (1.3) plate specific products

  2. Cadmium restriction in packaging materials

  3. Cadmium prohibition in electrical and electronic equipment

    The Czech Republic has implemented the EC Directive that imposes restrictions applying to chemical constituents of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE), i.e. the RoHS Directive (Directive 2002/95). This report discusses the Czech legislation that implements the RoHS Directive.

    The Czech Republic has also adopted legislation to implement Directive 76/769/EEC on the marketing and use of certain dangerous substances and preparations.

Defined Restrictions:
All articles: prohibition
All plated articles: 0.025% of the galvanisation
Packaging: 100 ppm for sum of heavy metals
Electronics: 0.01%
