Environmental Regulations


The Electronic Devices Law - ElektroG obliges manufacturers, importers and initial distributors to ensure an environmentally sustainable disposal of those goods quantities they have put into circulation.

For this, companies must apply for a registration number at the competent authority (EAR) which then has to be included on all business documents.

We would like to inform you that INTOS ELECTRONIC AG has registered for all goods we import and which fall within the range of Electronic Devices Law - ElektroG at Stiftung für Elektro-Altgeräte (ear).

INTOS ELECTRONIC AG registration no.: DE 59131158

Directives 2015/863/EC and 2011/65/EC (RoHS III) / RoHS III conformity

With Directive2015/863/EC of 31 March 2015 and 2011/65 / EC of 08 June 2011 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS III) occur for newly marketed electric and electronic equipment substance bans on lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, polybrominated diphenyl ethers, and, for the first time, butylbenzylphthalate, bis(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate, bibutylphthalate and diisobutylphthalate. All necessary preparations are made with our suppliers to ensure that materials used do not contain banned substances.
We hereby confirm that the products imported by the INTOS ELECTRONIC AG products comply with these conditions.

General Client Information on REACH

(Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals)

The European chemicals regulation REACH has applied immediately in all EU member states on January 1st, 2007 and became effective on June 1st, 2007.

The introduction of REACH aimed at ensuring high safety standards as regards environmental and health risks inherent in chemicals use throughout Europe. REACH creates an exhaustive chemicals management by registering, evaluating and authorizing chemicals.

Registration and evaluation obligations apply, on the one hand, to manufacturers or importers of chemicals from non-EU countries that put more than one ton of chemicals into circulation per year. On the other hand it applies to manufacturers of non-chemicals products if chemicals are released from these products in commonly existing and reasonably foreseeable conditions, and if the quantity threshold of 1 t/a of all products supplied is exceeded by this manufacturer. Substances of very high concern are also subject to obligatory approval.

All InLine products are produced in compliance with all applicable regulations including REACH. InLine products are products (non-chemical products) within the definition of REACH regulation, and as far as can be seen they are not subject to any registration, evaluation or authorization requirement, since according to our knowledge no chemicals are released in commonly existing and reasonably foreseeable conditions, or the quantity threshold of 1 t/a is not exceeded.

Article 33 of the REACH Regulation requires each supplier of a product to be notified if substances of very high concern (SVHC) in excess of 0,1% (by mass) are present in the article.
We regularly request from our partners within the supply chain that they act in accordance with the REACH regulation and fulfill all requirements and information requirements product-related. The requirement for an unsolicited transmission of REACH-relevant information along the supply chain was pointed out. We have not received any reports from our suppliers that substances of concern are present in products. We will comply with our information obligation product-related immediately if a product contains substances of concern over 0.1% (mass percentage). Updates to the candidate list of substances of concern will be considered and communicated to our suppliers for confirmation of conformity.



 General information about conflict materials

Currently we get more and more questions about the use of conflict materials which are in relation with the „Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform“ and „Consumer Protection Act (Wall Street Reform Act) which was brought into force in July 2010. This reform imposes documentation and publicity requirements on companies that use certain materials, intended to ensure that no conflict material is used in their products.
This letter is to inform you as a customer of INTOS ELECTRONIC AG, that we only use electronic parts and components in our products from leading manufacturers and longtime, trusted distributors. But as device manufacturer, we have no influence on the origin of minerals that are used by our parts and components suppliers. Thus we cannot take any responsibility in this respect . With our suppliers, we commit ourselves for traceability and transparency in their products  and many manufacturers and distributors inform on their websites about material composition and origin. In our products, no conflict material is used, based on our present state of knowledge.
Please understand that we cannot fill any special questionnaires due to the greatly increased number of requests.
