Item: WEEE Directive

Description:

The WEEE Directive (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment) is the EU directive 2012/19/EU to reduce the increasing amount of electronic waste. The aim is reducing or environmentally compatible disposal of electronic waste through extended producer responsibility.

The WEEE Directive concerns electrical and electronic equipment. Printed Circuit Boards, SMD-Stencils and Toroidal Transformers are components.

We are therefore not affected by WEE - our products are WEE-compliant.
