BAKGRUNN (fra kommisjonsforordningen, engelsk utgave)

(1) Pursuant to Article 4(2), point (a), of Directive 2000/53/EC, Member States are to ensure that materials and components of vehicles put on the market after 1 July 2003 do not contain lead, mercury, cadmium or hexavalent chromium.

(2) Annex II to Directive 2000/53/EC lists vehicle materials and components that are exempt from the prohibition pursuant to Article 4(2), point (a), thereof.

(3) The Commission assessed the exemption set out in entry 2(c)(i) of Annex II to Directive 2000/53/EC regarding aluminium alloys for machining purposes in view of technical and scientific progress. This assessment led to the conclusion that there are suitable alternatives available, but that a transitional period is needed to replace the use of lead in all the materials and components covered by that exemption. The use of lead in the materials and components concerned, including lead in wrought aluminium, could be phased out by the end of 2027. It is therefore appropriate to provide for an expiry date for that exemption.

(4) The Commission assessed the exemption set out in entry 3 of Annex II to Directive 2000/53/EC regarding copper alloys in view of technical and scientific progress. This assessment led to the conclusion that there are still no suitable alternatives to the use of lead in the materials and components covered by that exemption. Taking into account the progress made in the development of substitutes to lead in the materials and components concerned, it is appropriate to provide for a new review date for that exemption.

(5) The Commission assessed the exemption set out in entry 5(b) of Annex II to Directive 2000/53/EC regarding lead in batteries for battery applications not included in entry 5(a) of that Annex, which concerns batteries in high voltage systems, in view of technical and scientific progress. This assessment led to the conclusion that the use of lead in batteries for battery applications not included in entry 5(a) of Annex II to Directive 2000/53/EC can be avoided for some applications but not for batteries used in 12 V applications. In order to apply a consistent regulatory framework for batteries, including those that are not falling under the exemption set out in entry 5(a) of Annex II to Directive 2000/53/EC and are not used in 12 V applications, it is appropriate to provide for two separate entries 5(b)(i) and 5(b)(ii) instead of a single entry 5(b). Entry 5(b)(i) should provide an exemption for the use of lead in batteries used in 12 V applications. Taking into account the progress made in the development of substitutes to the use of lead in the batteries concerned, it is appropriate to provide for a review date for that exemption. Entry 5(b)(ii) should provide for an exemption for the use of lead in batteries for other battery applications that are not included in entry 5(a) and entry 5(b)(i) of Annex II to Directive 2000/53/EC. The assessment led to the conclusion that lead-based batteries for those applications are avoidable given the progress made in the development of substitutes to the use of lead in those batteries. It is therefore appropriate to provide for an expiry date for that exemption that allows phasing out of the use of lead in those batteries.

(6) Directive 2000/53/EC should therefore be amended accordingly,
