Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)
Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS)
The European WEEE directive covers back and recycling electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). It became effective as of August 13, 2005.
The European RoHS directive puts restrictions on the use of certain hazardous substances in new equipment. This directive became effective by July 1, 2006.
National regulations have been, or are now being, set up accordingly.
This is to inform you that those EEE, which are supplied into the European Union by Toshiba Electronics Europe GmbH (TEE) comply with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directive and where applicable (like for Memory Cards and USB Drive products) with the Restriction of use of certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive.
Measurement appliances as laboratory equipment are currently exempted from the RoHS directive. However, in line with Toshiba's overall environmental policy, we put much effort in ensuring that substances banned for electronic products are not commonly used in this equipment either. Toshiba continually monitors the applicability of the RoHS to any of its EEE and will ensure full compliance where appropriate.
