RoHS Directives Compliance

RoHS Logo
RoHS2 Green Logo
In 2006, the European Union passed the Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) Directive into law. Effective July 2006, the RoHS Directive (2002/95/EC) banned the sale of all new electrical and electronic equipment that contains more than designated maximum allowable levels of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants. In May 2011, an updated RoHS2 directive (2011/65/EU) added new categories to the list of affected end products, but the list of restricted substances and permitted levels was not changed.

Boedeker Plastics is an independent distributor of plastic materials in pre-molded stock shape forms. We can and do hereby certify that Boedeker Plastics does not add any RoHS-restricted materials during its cutting, shaping, forming, storage or handling processes. To the best of our knowledge, plastic materials that we sell do not contain any chemical of concern above the limits designated in the original RoHS Directive or any of its amendments.

As a distributor, Boedeker Plastics does not formulate or manufacture any of the materials that we sell. Chemicals contained in the materials or used in the manufacturing of the materials are selected and used at the sole discretion of the manufacturer and are often considered intellectual property. Accordingly, we are unable to represent or certify to our customers the exact ingredients that are contained in or used in the manufacturing processes of the materials we provide for resale. Any certification of chemical content is the sole responsibility of the respective manufacturers.

If you have additional questions concerning Boedeker Plastics’ position on RoHS compliance, or any of the plastic materials that you purchase from our company, please contact us by phone at 361-594-2941 or by e-mail to info@boedeker.com.

Sincerely,
Marvin Boedeker
President

    WEEE Directive
    WEEE Logo
    The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) is the European Community directive 2002/96/EC on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) which, together with the RoHS Directive, became European Law in February 2003. The WEEE Directive set collection, recycling and recovery targets for all types of electrical goods, with a minimum rate of 4 kilograms per head of population per annum recovered for recycling by 2009. In June 2012, the European Commission (EC) published an updated WEEE Directive with more aggressive recycling and waste collection targets for electronic equipment in Europe. Exporters to the EU should be aware of the revised proper product testing and reporting requirements.

    Boedeker Plastics is an independent distributor of plastic materials in pre-molded stock shape forms. To the best of our knowledge, plastic materials that we sell do not contain any chemical of concern above the limits that would affect or apply to any version of the WEEE Directive.
