All our Products are RoHS and WEEE Compliant
We encourage the design of all our lighting products with environmentally-safe recycling and recovery in mind.
All dangerous and restricted material / goods are disposed of thoughtfully and correctly.
This policy is promoted throughout our company and will be reflected in all business decisions wherever possible.
What Is RoHS ?
RoHs is the acronym for Restriction of Hazardous Substances.
RoHS restricts the use of specific hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products.
All applicable products in the EU market after July 1, 2006 must pass RoHS compliance.
For the complete directive, see Directive 2002/95/EC of the European Parliament.
What are the restricted materials mandated under RoHS ?
The substances banned under RoHS are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).
Why is RoHS compliance important ?
The restricted materials are hazardous to the environment, pollute landfills and are dangerous in terms
of occupational exposure during manufacturing and recycling.
Which companies are affected by the RoHS Directive?
Any business that sells applicable electronic products, sub-assemblies or components directly to EU
countries, or sells to resellers, distributors or integrators that in turn sell products to EU countries,
is impacted if they utilize any of the restricted materials.
What Is WEEE ?
WEEE is the acronym for Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment.
WEEE regulates the treatment, recovery and recycling of electric and electronic equipment. All applicable
products in the EU market after August 13, 2006 must pass WEEE compliance and carry the “Wheelie Bin” sticker.
For the complete directive, see Directive 2002/96/EC of the European Parliament.
How are RoHS and WEE related? – WEEE compliance aims to encourage the design of electronic products with
environmentally-safe recycling and recovery in mind. RoHS compliance dovetails into WEEE by reducing the
amount of hazardous chemicals used in electronic manufacture.
