Product quality and customer service is the prime focus of Mercury Electronics and the quality accreditations of ISO9001/IATF 16949 and ISO14001 reflect this.
Mercury Electronics Policy on RoHS Directive
EU legislation restricting the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) and promoting the collection and recycling of such equipment has been in force since February 2003. The legislation provides for the creation of collection schemes where consumers return their used waste EEE free of charge. The objective of these schemes is to increase the recycling and/or re-use of such products. The legislation also requires certain hazardous substances (heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and hexavalent chromium and flame retardants such as polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE)) to be substituted by safer alternatives. Waste EEE poses environmental and health risks if inadequately treated. The RoHS and WEEE directives on electrical and electronic equipment were recast in 2011,2012 and 2015 to tackle the fast increasing waste stream of such products. The aim is to increase the amount of waste EEE that is appropriately treated and to reduce the volume that goes to disposal.
Mercury have a policy of maintaining regular reviews on their products to ensure full compliance with the latest RoHS directive 2015/863/EU.
All products supplied by Mercury are fully compliant with current regulations.
