We meet requirements, local and international, on chemicals, waste and sourcing.
OJ Electronics A/S meets the requirements of European Union Regulation EC 1907/2006 with amendments, REACH (Registration, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals).
OJ Electronics has for years been working with suppliers to keep track of chemicals in products.
As part of a sustainable strategy, OJ Electronics has invested in tools to monitor the status of REACH and Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) in components. We will act according to regulation EC 1907/2006 if SVCH is used in concentrations above stated limits.

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.
Conflict minerals, Cobalt and Mica
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 Minerals (Tin, Gold, Tungsten, Tantalum) pose a specific challenge, as mentioned in the U.S. Dodd-Frank Act, section 1502, and in Regulation (EU) 2017/821.
It has come to our attention that also Cobalt and Mica pose a challenge. Even though there are no legal regulations yet, we include these minerals in our efforts on responsible sourcing.
We aim to avoid that any of the mentioned minerals used in our products are sourced in a way that finances conflicts anywhere in the world.
As we do not source any of these minerals directly, our efforts focus on ensuring that our suppliers are as committed as we are.
