Environmental Directives

January 2003, the European Union (EU) adopted two environmental directives, RoHS and WEEE, to contribute to the protection of human health and environmentally sound recovery and disposal of electrical and electronic equipment.

RoHS stands for the Restriction of Hazardous Substances and bans the use of lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, poly brominated biphenyls (PBBs) and poly brominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in electronical and electronic products. This directive comes into force 1 July 2006.

The WEEE directive, Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, concentrates on the recyclability of electrical and electronic products, and states that, from 13 August 2005 onwards, manufacturers are required to finance the collection, treatment and recycling and recovery of all WEEE sold under their brand.

The RoHS and WEEE directives significantly impact the design and manufacture of electrical and electronic products. It is pcbsino policy too

Adopt a progressive position to ensure that pcbsino clearly complies with any legal obligations the company has
Ensure that we can appropriately support pcbsino ’s customers in their desire to do the same
Realize whatever opportunities these directives may present in adding to our competitive competencies portfolio
Execute these in the most cost-effective manner possible

We guarantees an impeccable quality, delivered on time. We pay a lot of attention to our environment : we run our own waste water and air treatment system that complies with the most severe European standards.

This characterizes our concern for the environment and the working conditions of our staff at Multiboard.
