The European Union ‘Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment’ “RoHS” Directive (EU)2017/2102 prohibits the sale of electronic equipment containing certain hazardous substances in the European Union. In general terms, RoHS does not apply to large-scale industrial tools, fixed installations, or military and space equipment. Based on our knowledge of the directive at this time, we believe that our products fall outside the scope of RoHS. Although, we are working with our suppliers to reduce potential exposure to hazardous substances where feasible.
The European Union ‘Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment’ “WEEE” (2012/19/EU) directive’s objectives center on improving the management of the rapidly growing waste of electrical and electronic equipment. We believe that the equipment we manufacture does not fall within any of the categories listed. Nonetheless, in the unlikely disposal of our products into the environment, we will attempt to follow guidelines deemed necessary under the directive.
The European Union ‘Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical Substances’ “REACH” directive aims to improve the protection of human health and the environment by providing information and regulation of chemicals produced or imported in the EU. Our products are considered “articles” as defined in Annex V of the legislation and therefore do not require registration.
