WEEE RICHTLINIE 2002/96/EC der Europäischen Union
The Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive. This directive is aimed at reducing waste of electrical and electronic equipment and promoting reuse and recycling of the equipment by establishing the target of reuse and recycling as a percentage of weight. GlobTeks customers typically export to the European Union and in anticipation of GlobTeks customers forthcoming compliance with WEEE the trash can logo has been added to all products suitable for use in Europe. The trash can symbology readily available on GlobTek products will allow customers to quickly comply with WEEE marking requirements as the power supply, a main component is marked in compliance. Customers should familiarize themselves with the WEEE directive as the requirements for reuse and recycling of GlobTeks products which ship attached to final systems will be the responsibility of the manufacturer of the system or the importer into the European Union. Also, marking on the power supply alone is not enough to comply with WEEE.
