.: The RoHS Directive (2011/65/UE)

Restriction of the use of hazardous substances


The RoHS Directive deals with the elimination of lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chrome, and flame retarders that are known as polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) from some categories of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) marketed in Europe.
Since 1st July 2006, when the standard came into effect, EEEs that belong to these product categories that contain these substances cannot be marketed in Europe. The dealer may only market these products if they were in their possession prior to 1st July 2006.

Actions taken
These are the categories of products that are subject to the RoHS Directive:

- Lighting equipment.

In terms of the prescriptions of Legislative Decree n° 151 of 25/07/05, as from 1st July 2006 our products that fall within the field of application of the directive and are sold / transferred / released to our clients comply with the RoHS community standard in terms of the concentration of forbidden substances.

A further, constant commitment to the environment

Although not being under any obligation, FANTON undertakes to reduce and eliminate the substances forbidden by the RoHS directive from all its products, apart solely from the exceptions laid down in the annexure to Directive 2011/65/UE.

Since sensitivity to environmental questions and safety in the workplace runs deep in the Company, when developing products the use of halogenated flame retardants is limited to cases in which these additives are necessary to guarantee the safety of the products themselves, and when there are no valid alternatives on the market that are able to guarantee the same levels of reliability.
