RoHS and WEEE Compliance

RoHS Recast 2011/65/EU

Products of Georg Fischer Signet LLC are made in compliance with RoHS Recast Directive 2011/65/EU which replaced the original RoHS Directive, 2002/95/EC on January 3, 2013.

RoHS Recast Major Changes:

  • The CE marking now includes the RoHS Directive. Where needed and appropriate, new DoC documents are being developed and updated on our website.
  • Conformity declaration must “accompany” the finished product and must be in the language of the local market.
  • Removal of EU Lead Free RoHS symbology from all products.

WEEE Legislation 2012/19/EU

In line with the European WEEE (Waste of Electrical & Electronic Equipment) legislation, Georg Fischer Signet shall be adding a prescribed sticker to all relevant and newly manufactured products during the next several weeks. The sticker shows a crossed-out trash can symbol. All electrical and electronic products sold into the EU are affected by this legislation. The WEEE legislation identifies products and requirements for preventing waste, promoting recycling and reuse of electrical and electronic products. The responsible party for complying with the directive is the manufacturer (if located in the EU) or the importer (if the manufacturer is outside of the EU). Customers must be informed about the logistics of recycling and contracts must be made with recycling services. Export for recycling or disposal is typically not allowed. This responsible party will need to register all electronic products with part numbers at a national clearing house, and report annual sales and retrieved/recycled quantities. There is no exemption for small quantity sales. Georg Fischer Signet intends to focus on recycling methods and the disassembly possibilities in new designs to facilitate dismantling and recovery.
