About usREACH, RoHS, Waste and Conflict Minerals
OJ Electronics is committed to protecting people and environment by avoiding hazardous substances in our products, by sourcing responsibly and by managing our waste, sorting and recycling whenever possible.
We meet requirements, local and international, on chemicals, waste and sourcing.
OJ Electronics A/S meets the requirements of REACH (Registration, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals, European Union Regulation (EC) 1907/2006) with amendments.
Keenly aware of our duties as a downstream user, we ensure that our key suppliers understand the importance of the REACH legislation and their duty to keep us informed of any Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) in products they supply to OJ Electronics. We act promptly upon any hint of any of SVCH being used in concentrations above 0.1% in our components.
OJ Electronics A/S meets the requirements of RoHS3, meaning the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directives 2011/65/EU (RoHS2) with amendments, including Directive 2015/863/EU (RoHS3).
Generally, our products fall under category 9: ‘Monitoring and Control Instruments’.
OJ Electronics A/S also produces spare parts for products put on the market before 2006. While this category is exempt from the RoHS directive, we continue to adjust our processes, materials, etc. to make all our products comply with the RoHS directive.
OJ Electronics A/S meets the requirements of WEEE2 (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive 2012/19/EU), which stipulates the collection and recycling of all kinds of electronic waste and prompts manufacturers to collect and dispose of electronic waste. We fulfill our obligations through collaboration with elretur, see certificate below.
Sorting and recycling
We have strict in-house procedures for waste management, meeting or exceeding all requirements from local and national authorities. We currently sort waste into more than twenty different subgroups.
When you deal with OJ Electronics, you can be sure that the minerals in your products are sourced with due respect for human rights and the need to avoid contributing to conflicts.
The so-called conflict mineral specified in, e.g. the U.S. Dodd-Frank Act, section 1502, pose a specific challenge. We aim to avoid that any of these minerals used in our products are sourced in a way that finances conflicts in the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries.
As we do not source any of these minerals directly, our efforts focus on ensuring that our suppliers are as committed as we are.
