RoHS, WEEE & EuP Directives
As a leading company in our sector, you can be sure that we will not introduce any products to market which do not meet with relevant guidelines and laws. Similarly, we ensure all our business operations conform to European and national specifications, regulations and laws.
Requirements of RoHS Directives:
Since July 2006, non-RoHS-compliant products are no longer allowed to be placed on the European market. In January 2013, the RoHS2 Directive came into force, which regulates transition periods until 2019 for product types that were previously exempt from RoHS. The RoHS2 amendment Directive 2015/863 added 4 Phthalates to the original 6 RoHS substances. It is effective for all WEEE products placed on the market after July 22, 2019. While for Medical WEEE products, and KVM, Video and IP-Power Monitoring and Control Equipment, a transition period until July 22, 2021 applies. Besides these exemptions, products already placed on the market before these dates can continue to be sold.
Since January 2013, RoHS products are labelled with the CE logo. Our CE declaration of conformity also declares RoHS-compatibility for every individual product. If there is a legitimate interest, we will provide you with the CE declarations of conformity for each individual article on request. Please understand that we do not provide any further general declarations. CE declarations of conformity for individual products can be made available to you by your local sales team after naming the individual article numbers.
Requirements of the EuP Directive:
We support the EU’s EuP Directive and put this into consideration during the development of our products and basically use it as a resource in conservation and energy efficient product development.
About the WEEE Directive:
What is WEEE?
WEEE addresses the problems of our environment with regards to electrical and electronic equipment commonly known as EEE. WEEE refers to the waste of EEE products and sets regulations to all producers and importers of EEE.
What to do with your old and broken WEEE products?
Old and broken EEE products are not allowed in your domestic waste bin. These products have to be disposed and forwarded to your local or national recycling centers.
When you have finished with a WEEE product, do not put it in your domestic waste bin because it is forbidden as it will not be recycled.
