The WEEE Directive (2012/19/EU) aims to reduce the amount of waste electrical and electronic equipment that ends up in landfill. To comply with WEEE regulations, suppliers of products within the scope of the directive must join a Producer Compliance Scheme,
FDL are currently members of a government certified scheme ( WEEE Registration: Recycle IT Waste Management No. EAWML10339) to ensure full environmental responsibility is taken for materials sent out into the market by us. All relevant products are marked with WEEE the symbol, please ensure you do not dispose of these products as household waste.
EC directive 2002/95/EC including the amendment 2010/571Eu and 2011/95/EU /2011/65EU (the RoHS1 and 2 Directives) restricts the use of the hazardous substances listed below in electrical and electronic equipment.
Fairline Distribution Ltd. designates products as RoHS1 and 2 compliant based on information provided by its suppliers. RoHS compliant means that the supplier has confirmed the compliance of the relevant products either because they do not contain any of the restricted substances referred to in Article 4(1) of the RoHS Directive at concentrations in excess of those permitted under the RoHS Directive or because removal of the restricted substances is not technically possible and their existence in the products at levels in excess of these concentrations is allowed for the particular applications listed in the Annex to the RoHS Directive.
All products covered by the directive should carry the RoHS symbol, as evidence of compliance. However, absence of the symbol does not imply the product is not compliant.
Products supplied by Fairline Distribution do not contain any of the 84 SVHC’s (substances of very high concern), in the current list published by the European Chemicals Agency, in excess of 0.1% of the product weight. SVHC’s are defined by REACh Article 57 and in accordance with Directive 67/548/EEC and criteria set out in REACh Annex XIII.
Fairline Distribution Ltd. designates products as REACh compliant based on information provided by its suppliers. REACh compliant means that the supplier has confirmed the compliance of the relevant products, either because they do not contain any of the restricted substances, referred to in Article 57 of the REACh Directive, at concentrations in excess of those permitted under the Directive or because removal of the restricted substances is not technically possible and their existence in the products at levels in excess of these concentrations is allowed for the particular applications listed in the Annex to the REACh Directive.
“Conflict Minerals” refers to specific minerals originating from mines controlled by armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or adjoining countries such as Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Republic of Tanzania, Angola and the Central African Republic. The Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act Section 1502, and later the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 restrict the use of certain minerals from mines in these countries that are controlled by armed, non-government military groups or unlawful military factions.
Fairline requires our suppliers to undertake reasonable due diligence within their supply chain to ensure that conflict minerals are not being sourced from mines in these conflict areas. We ask all our suppliers to source products that contain these minerals from recognized sources that can be traced back to the authorised smelters list, currently published by the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition Global Sustainability Initiative (EICC-GeSI).
The Restricted Minerals are:
Tin / Casserite
Fairline designates its products conflict mineral free based upon information provided by our suppliers, and do not knowingly use these minerals or their by-products, as specified by the Conflict Minerals Trade Act.
