Notes on disposal

In order to avoid any possible effects resulting from the disposal of electrical and electronic equipment containing substances damaging to the environment and human health, the European Parliament and Council directives 2012/19/EU on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and 2011/65/EU on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS) have been transferred into national law in all EU member states.

The primary aim of the legislation is the prevention of waste electrical and electronic equipment, and also the recycling material recovery and any other form of recovery of such waste in order to reduce the quantities of waste to be disposed of and the amount of hazardous substances from electrical and electronic equipment in waste.

The product that you have purchased was developed in line with the current state of the art in an environmentally friendly manner and with a view to recycling. It therefore meets the specifications of the European directives.
