Environmental Commitment Statement
Compumedics Limited, is a manufacturer of quality patient recording equipment for sleep, respiratory disorders and neurological disorders. Compumedics accepts its responsibilities in environmental matters and recognises that good environmental management must be an integral and fundamental part of our business. Although we believe that we have a minimal impact on the environment, Compumedics Limited aims to continue to improve its environmental performance by:
The Restriction of Hazardous Substances RoHS 3 (EU Directive, 2015/863) restricts the use of lead and other potentially hazardous substances including Phthalates, Cadmium, Mercury Chromium VI, PBBs and PBDEs contained in electrical and electronic products. Compumedics has implemented policies and procedures with suppliers to meet the requirements of this directive.
Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) is a European Union (EU) regulation, that seeks to address the production and use of chemical substances, as well as their potential impacts on both human health and the environment. Compumedics is aware of its obligations with regards REACH and has implemented policies and procedures to meet the requirements of the directive.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE), Directive 2002/96/EC, which sets collection, recycling and recovery targets for electrical goods. Although primarily a European-Union countries’ focussed directive, Compumedics Limited works with the Compumedics EU offices to meet the requirements of the directive, regarding collection and disposal of the electronic-waste of our medical-devices and accessories. We facilitate an open communication channels to support with the arrangement of the above if needed, within 5 business days, also with our EU distributers as well.
Disposal guidelines for customers
Products labelled with the WEEE symbol indicate that the final user should not discard this product along with other household waste, but that it must be collected and treated separately.
The symbol is on the product, its packaging or documentation, which indicates that this product/system must not be disposed of with other waste. Instead, it is the user’s responsibility to dispose of the user’s waste equipment by handing it over to a designated collection point for the recycling of waste electrical and electronic equipment. The separate collection and recycling of waste equipment at the time of disposal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that it is recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. For more information about where you can drop off your waste equipment for recycling, please contact your local city office, your household waste disposal service or the seller (in EU only!) from whom you purchased the product.
Compumedics commit to administer collection of waste electrical and electronic equipment or authorised representative in the EU region, with 5 days of first notice.
