WEEE Certification

Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment Directive 2012/19/EU

The objective of the WEEE directive is to prevent waste from various electrical and electronic equipment when it has reached the end of its useful life. The directive sets targets for collection, recycling and recovery for all types of electrical products.

The RoHS Directive, which accompanies the WEEE Directive, is concerned with banning the use of six hazardous substances, which are lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, and the flame retardants PBB, PBDE, and DecaBDE in the manufacture of electrical products and equipment. There is provision for percentage trace levels that may bepresent.

Rippedsheets.com manufactures self-adhesive laminates which are processed into labels for various applications, some of which may be used on electrical equipment.

None of the six aforementioned substances are intentionally used in any of the self-adhesive label stock we manufacture. However, there may be small trace amounts of the heavy metals present. An analysis of heavy metal content has already been carried out with regard to Packaging Directive 94/62/EC. The results obtained showed that typical values for lead, cadmium, mercury and hexavalent chromium are less than 15mg/kg (15ppm), in total, for our various laminates.
