Environmental Regulations

WEEE :

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



Directive 2011/65/EC (RoHS II) / RoHS II compliance:

With Directive 2011/65 / EC of 08 June 2011 on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS II) occur for newly marketed electric and electronic equipment substance bans on lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls and polybrominated diphenyl ethers. 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.

According to Art 33 REACH regulation there is a disclosure obligation for manufacturers of products only as regards so-called substances of very high concern which fulfill the criteria of Art. 57 REACH regulation. Such materials must also represent more than 0.1 percentage by mass of the product. Which materials are included in this regulation must be defined by the European Chemicals Agency according to Art. 59 REACH regulation and then be entered in a List of Candidates which has to be published by June 2009 at the very latest (Art. 58 REACH regulation). Without this List of Candidates being available, however, we cannot fulfill this disclosure obligation. In case such substances of very high concern are contained in more than 1 t/a of products, the European Chemicals Agency must be notified, but only 2011 at the very earliest. (source: ZVEI directions on Information and Disclosure Requirements of Companies according to Art. 33 REACH regulation).

In case any substances of very high concern should be contained in our products we will of course fulfill our obligations according to REACH. We will perform the necessary communication with our suppliers to ensure as far as possible a continued supply of those chemicals we need, thus ensuring reliable delivery of our finished products to our clients.


 

 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.
