Fougerolle is committed to protecting the environment. This commitment includes compliance with several EU Directives:
The European Directive 2002/96 / EC on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) entered into force on 13 August 2005.
Fougerolle continuously improves the development of products focused on recycling. In accordance with the WEEE Directive, we not only participate in a collection system in each EU Member State in which we sell equipment, but also improve our achievements in recycling. The products covered by the WEEE Directive bear the symbol of the rubbish bin.
At the end of their lives, these products must be separately collected and recycled. This means that they must be disposed of separately from household waste. A black bar under the symbol indicates that the product was placed on the market after August 13, 2005.
European Directive 2002/95 on the Limitation of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS 1) entered into force on 1 July 2006.
It limits the use of the six groups of substances: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) for electrical and electronic products placed on the market, EU.
RoHS 2 (2011/65 / EU) is an evolution of the original directive and became law on 21 July 2011 and took effect on 2 January 2013. It deals with the same substances as the original directive while improving regulatory conditions And legal clarity.
Fougerolle’s products become completely RoHS compliant by checking every step of the manufacturing process.
