The Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), which entered into force as European law on 14/02/2014, resulted in a major change in the treatment of electrical equipment at end-of-life.
The purpose of this Directive is, as a first priority, the prevention of WEEE, and in addition, to promote the reuse, recycling, and other forms of recovery of such wastes so as to reduce disposal.
The WEEE logo on the product or on its box indicating the collection for electrical and electronic equipment consists of the crossed-out wheeled bin, as shown below.
This product must not be disposed of or dumped with your other household waste. You are liable to dispose of all your electronic or electrical waste equipment by relocating over to the specified collection point for the recycling of such hazardous waste. Isolated collection and proper recovery of your electronic and electrical waste equipment at the time of disposal will allow us to help conserve natural resources. Moreover, proper recycling of electronic and electrical waste equipment will ensure the safety of human health and the environment. For more information about electronic and electrical waste equipment disposal, recovery, and collection points, please contact your local city center, household waste disposal service, shop from where you purchased the equipment or manufacturer of the equipment.

RoHS Compliance

REACH
REACH (Regulation No 1907/2006) addresses the production and use of chemical substances and their potential impacts on human health and the environment. Article 33(1)  of the REACH Regulation requires suppliers to inform the recipients if an article contains more than 0.1 % (per weight per article) of any substance(s) on the Substances of Very  High Concern (SVHC) Candidate List (‘REACH candidate list’). This product contains the substance “lead”(CAS-No. 7439-92-1) in a concentration of more than 0.1% per weight.
At the time of the release of this product, except for the lead substance, no other substances of the REACH candidate list are contained in a concentration of more than 0.1% per weight in this product.
Note: On June 27, 2018, the lead was added to the REACH candidate list. The inclusion of lead in the REACH candidate list does not mean that lead-containing materials pose an immediate risk or result in a restriction of the permissibility of its use.
For Products That Include Batteries EU Batteries Directive 2013/56/EU
A new battery directive 2013/56/EU on Battery and Accumulator replacement directive entered into force on 01 /07/2015. The directive applies to all types of batteries and accumulators (AA, AAA, button cells, lead acid, rechargeable packs) including those incorporated into appliances except for the military, medical, and power tool applications. The directive sets out rules for the collection, treatment, recycling, and disposal of batteries, and aims to prohibit certain hazardous substances and to improve the environmental performance of batteries and all operators in the supply chain.
Instructions for Users on Removal, Recycling, and Disposal of Used Batteries To remove the batteries from your equipment or remote control, reverse the procedure described in the owner’s manual for inserting batteries. Removing products with a built-in battery that lasts for the product’s lifetime may not be possible for the user. In this case,  recycling or recovery centers handle the dismantling of the product and the removal of the battery. If for any reason, it becomes necessary to replace such a battery, this procedure must be performed by authorized service centers.
In the European Union and other locations, it is illegal to dispose of any battery with household trash. All batteries must be disposed of in an environmentally sound manner.  Contact your local waste-management officials for information regarding the environmentally sound collection, recycling, and disposal of used batteries.

WARNING: Danger of explosion if the battery is incorrectly replaced. To reduce the risk of fire or burns, don’t disassemble, crush, puncture, short external contacts, expose to temperatures above 60°C (140°F), or dispose of in fire or water. Replace only with specified batteries. The symbol indicating ‘separate collection’ for all batteries and  accumulators shall be the crossed-out wheeled bin shown below:
