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:
As of July 1st 2006, non-RoHS compatible CE products may no longer be introduced into the European market. From January 2013 on the EUís RoHS2 Directive, among other things, regulates the transition period of RoHS exempt products until 2019. It definitively includes assembled cables with connectors. Since January, 2013, RoHS products are marked with the CE logo and our CE Declaration of conformity also declares RoHS compliance.
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.
