Request 20a

"Mercury in cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL) for back-lighting liquid crystal displays not exceeding 5 mg per lamp used in industrial monitoring and control instruments (only sub-category 9 industrial)"

This request was part of a previous project. A stakeholder consultation is necessary to allow review of changes to wording and/or new information, before revaluation of the request.

It should be noted that though the previous request was applied for category 9 products, it was later established that the exemption is in need by the applicant only for sub-category 9 industrial. As it is important to establish if this exemption is in need for applications beyond the scope of this subgroup, the original application and questionaire has been included.

This section therefore includes new information from the applicant, information from the original request evaluation, as well as a questionaire concerning the origial request. Stakeholders are requested to base their submissions on this questionnaire including as much comprehensive information as possible.

This section also includes the results of previous consultations as far as available to Öko-Institut and Fraunhofer IZM. These results can be used to trace back the history and rationale that led to a certain exemption. Please be aware that the excerpts may include parts of other chapters not related to the exemption before or after the chapter relevant for the specific exemption.
