At the writing of this paper, in mid summer of 2005, the WEEE directive is theoretically in force and enforcement of the RoHS directive is less than 11 months away. We will assume that the reader knows that WEEE is essentially a recycling directive and RoHS is a directive that restricts hazardous materials to enable easier recycling.
This introduction begs the question, "How do I get ready for WEEE and RoHS?" In light of this need, several Dartmouth graduate students joined with us to develop A Protocol for RoHS and WEEE Compliance. This paper will be an overview of the Protocol and will discuss in detail some interesting aspects. A full version, with updates, is available at www.smta.org.
Key words: WEEE, lead-free solder, RoHS, environmental compliance.
