Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) information
The following outlines Portwell's compliance strategy with the goal to meet WEEE - RoHS requirements of EC Directive on Waste Electrical Equipment and Electronic (WEEE) and EC Directive on the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment ( RoHS).
Definition of RoHS & WEEE:
RoHS - Restriction on Hazardous Substances
The role of RoHS is to reduce harmful substances [materials] at source. Ensuring that these hazardous substances are not leached into the environment by equipment which inevitably fails to be recycled. The WEEE Directive is a separate piece of environmental legislation, though it is directly linked to RoHS.
WEEE - Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
The WEEE Directive is primarily tasked with reducing the amount of electrical and electronic equipment (often expressed as EEE) from entering landfill at the end of its useful life by encouraging reuse, recycling and separate collection.
EU Member States shall ensure that, from 1 July 2006, new electrical and electronic equipment put on the market does not contain:
- Cadmium ( Cd )
- Hexavalent Chromium ( Cr VI )
- Lead ( Pb ) ( Pb Proposition65 )
- Mercury ( Hg )
- Polybrominated Biphenyl ( PBBs )
- Polybrominated Diphenylethers (PBDEs)
