Environment and sustainability – environmentally conscious management
We’re an ecology-minded company. During product development we already pay great attention to the environment. That’s why we use eco-friendly raw materials and production methods. The DIN EN ISO 14001 certified management system at ODW-ELEKTRIK unites ecological action with economic aspects. To ensure the sustainability of our products we align all processes with environmental aspects.
Introduction to REACH and RoHS
ODW-ELEKTRIK manufactures, imports and supplies products which qualify as “articles”, as defined in the REACH regulations, and which therefore do not require registration with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in Helsinki. In addition, ODW-ELEKTRIK will not be required to submit a registration for the chemical substances contained in the “articles” as no substances are intended to be released under normal or reasonably foreseeable conditions of use.
In order to meet our obligations under Article 33 of the Regulations we will advise of any products which contain substances subsequently included on published candidate lists. In addition, we will provide all required information. In recognition of our duties within the supply chain, and to ensure full compliance with this legislation, all ODW-ELEKTRIK facilities are working with their suppliers to ensure the proper pre-registration and registration of all base chemical substances, as appropriate.
We will continue our efforts in this area to ensure that there is no disruption within the supply chain and that all products manufactured and supplied by ODW-ELEKTRIK will be fully compliant with the regulations. Furthermore, to inform our customers of the automotive industry, we publish material data sheets at International Material Data System (IMDS) to ensure that the forbidden substances registered in the Global Automotive Declarable Substance List (GADSL) are not contained in our products.
