Compliance with Environmental and Safety Legislations

What is REACh?

  • Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals.

This legislation provides a high level of protection of human health and the environment from the use of chemicals. For our business it defines the safe levels of certain substances within the products and packaging we place on the market.

What is RoHS?

  • Restriction of Hazardous Substances.

This legislation restricts the use of certain hazardous substances within the products we place on the market. It applies to electrical and electronic equipment including cables.

What is WEEE?

  • Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment recycling.

This legislation ensures that EEE placed on the market can be recycled effectively and safely, and that businesses are responsible for their products. In our case it only applies to a small selection of our products.

What is CPR?

  • Construction Products Regulation.

This is to ensure certain products used in construction comply with the British Standard EN 50575:2014+A1:2016. It requires that a Factory Production Control system is in place and testing of products is completed to specific levels.

What we do to comply

We hold declarations from our supply chains to show that every product complies with applicable legislations and standards before products are put on the market. A product will not be sold until we hold test reports and/or declarations that show the parts comply.

Tests are done by expert independent laboratories. The laboratories use scientific machines that very accurately check compliance so that when the tests pass, we know we comply with the appropriate standard.

We have Business Management Systems in place to monitor, measure, control, and continuously improve the operation of the business and ensure on-going product quality and safety.

We take our environmental responsibilities very seriously and have international and local goals and targets each year for sustainability. See our Group Sustainability page for more information.

Please do not throw any waste electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin. In the UK, distributors are required to provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge.
