Commitment to RoHS and WEEE Requirements
TRAK is committed to meeting all requirements of the European Union’s (EU) WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) and where required the RoHS (Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Directives. These directives require strategies for waste management and product design for the environment for electrical and electronic equipment sold into EU countries.
TRAK is committed to meeting all requirements of the WEEE directive (2002/96/EC). The WEEE directive requires that manufacturers of electrical and electronic equipment who sell into EU countries: (1) label their equipment to notify customers that it needs to be recycled, and (2) ensure that their products are appropriately disposed of or recycled at the end of their lifespan.
TRAK also is committed to meeting or exceeding the requirements of the RoHS directive (2002/95/EC). The RoHS directive requires that manufacturers eliminate or minimize the use of lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, cadmium, polybrominated biphenyls and polybrominated diphenyl ethers in electrical and electronic equipment sold in the EU after July 1, 2006. In the case of certain qualified components for defence and space applications lead solder continues to be used in small amounts.
