E-Bikes will be out of EU RoHS II-Directive for next 8 years.

In the Directive 2011/65 of the EU Parliament and of the Council article 2 says that e-bikes which are not type approved do not apply to this European regulation until 22 July 2019.

According to Neuberger electric bicycles do not have to comply with the RoHS II-Directive as per January 2, 2013. “There is a transitional period of eight years for electrical two-wheel vehicles which are not type-approved. This was the result of lots of lobby work from the ZIV in 2010.”
In the Directive 2011/65 of the EU Parliament and of the Council article 2 says that e-bikes which are not type approved do not apply to this European regulation until 22 July 2019. 

The European RoHS II-Directive 2011/65 implies that manufacturers have to ensure and, if asked, prove that no Lead, Cadmium, Hexavalent Chromium, Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) have been used, not only in the electrical and electronic components but also in no other vehicle component. 
“In 2010 have we tried to get EPAC’s excluded from the scope of the Directive”, said Siegfried Neuberger, GM of the German Industry organization ZIV. “This was not accepted by the European Commission. Nevertheless we have been successful by asking for a long transitional period of 8 years, which makes it easier for the industry to fulfill the requirements.”

The EU Directive 2011/65 has to be adopted and published by the member states by 2 January 2013.
