EU Directives WEEE and RoHS

To Our Valued Customers:

We are committed to being a good corporate citizen. As part of that commitment,

we strive to maintain an environmentally conscious manufacturing operation. The

European Union (EU) has enacted two Directives, the first on product recycling

(Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, WEEE) and the second limiting the use

of certain substances (Restriction on the use of Hazardous Substances, RoHS).

Over time, these Directives will be implemented in the national laws of each EU

Member State.

Once the final national regulations have been put into place, recycling will be offered

for our products which are within the scope of the WEEE Directive. Products falling

under the scope of the WEEE Directive available for sale after August 13, 2005 will

be identified with a “wheelie bin” symbol.

Two Categories of products covered by the WEEE Directive are currently exempt

from the RoHS Directive – Category 8, medical devices (with the exception of

implanted or infected products) and Category 9, monitoring and control instruments.

Most of our products fall into either Category 8 or 9 and are currently exempt from

the RoHS Directive. We will continue to monitor the application of the RoHS

Directive to its products and will comply with any changes as they apply.
