Introduction

As harmonised by EU requirements, Lithuania has two different legislative requirements for flame retardants. A third restriction, covering covering polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) ) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) in electronics is not yet transposed (deadline for transposition not until August 13, 2004)

  1. PentaBDE and OctaBDE restriction (applicable to all articles)

  2. TRIS, TEPA and PBB prohibition (applicable to textiles and textile articles)

  3. polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE)

    Lithuania has implemented legislation transposing the RoHS Directive through Order No. V-28 of the Minister of Health dated as of 22 April 2004, amending the Lithuanian Hygienic Norm 36:2002 on Banned and Restricted Substances. This report discusses this RoHS-transposing legislation and its key provisions.

Defined Restrictions:
All articles: PentaBDE & OctaBDE: limit (0.1% by mass)
Textiles: prohibition for TRIS, TEPA, PBB
Electronics: polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) : 0.1%
