    ATEX Standard

     

    The ATEX Standard became compulsory on 1st July 2003. All new material bought from this date must be marked ATEX.

     

    The following marks must also be engraved on the equipment:

       - Name and address of the manufacturer

       - Notified body responsible for EC examination

       - Serial/batch number and year of construction

       - Full ATEX certificate number (with EC examination body code, year of issue, serial number...)

        - Maximum external surface temperature (if below -20°C or +40°C)

     

     

     

    RoHS Directive

     

    The European Parliament and Council of the European Union RoHS Directive of 27 January 2003 specifically restricts the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.

    On the basis of the DEEE Directive (on electrical and electronic equipment waste) and the RoHS Directive, at its meeting on 17 December 2003, the Technical Adaptation Committee (CAT) reached the conclusion that neither of these Directives affected batteries.

     

    Since batteries are not subject to the RoHS Directive, the investigation concerns the presence of hazardous substances in components or connections:

        - Hexavalent chromium

        - Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB)

        - Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE)

     

    Note: Eco-Emballage and Adelphe are private sector companies established by the French government in 1992 to ensure adequate waste recovery and recycling of packaging

     

    Under their own initiative, some of our suppliers have brought an end to the use of lead-based brazing metals for welding plating (pre-welded tags). In this way, all batteries with welded tags should use lead-free plating.
