Solder balls that have more than 0,1% PB are not RoHS compliant. It might be RoHS compatible meaning it can handle the higher temperatures used in a leadfree process.

Amol, RoHS does not apply to BGA on their own. Depends where they go in ? DVD player vs server board

There is "solder exemption" for certain product applications.

SnPb ball BGA can used with tin-lead solder on server/infrastructure/switch telecom type products.

The other 5 elements have to be out of a BGA and then a tinlead ball bga can be RoHS compliant to be used on the specified products that are exempt.
