Why do we need the RoHS, WEEE and Packaging regulations?
The rapid development of new technology has created a high volume of hazardous electrical and electronic waste.
The RoHS Regulations restrict the use of certain hazardous substances in new equipment. This makes it easier to recycle equipment and protects human health and the environment.
The RoHS and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations will work together. The WEEE Regulations will require businesses to take responsibility for the costs of recycling and the safe disposal of electrical and electronic equipment.
Packaging legislation is driven by the Packaging & Packaging Waste Directive which is concerned with minimizing the creation of packaging waste material and promotes energy recovery, re-use and recycling of packaging.
AXON hereby confirms that any material used for products is compliant with the directives.
