WEEE and RoHS
The objective of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) directive is to prevent waste from various electrical and electronic equipment when it has reached the end of its useful life. The directive sets targets for collection, recycling and recovery for all types of electrical products.
The Restriction on Hazardous Substances Directive, RoHS, which accompanies the WEEE Directive, is concerned with banning the use of six hazardous substances, commonly used in electronic equipment. Any RoHS compliant component is tested for Lead, Cadmium, Mercury, Hexavalent chromium, Polybrominated biphenyls, and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers.
Rippedsheets.com offers more than 30 different RoHS compliant label materials that are laser printable, some of which are also inkjet printable. There are metallic, waterproof, tamper-evident, reflective labels, and many more. Any NFC inlay can also be inserted into these labels.
CONEG stands for Coalition of Northeastern Governors and consists of the states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Each state has modified the regulation to a certain extent, but the main objective of the CONEG legislation is to reduce the levels of Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, and Hexavalent chromium in any package or package component. Manufacturers must include a Certificate of Compliance with the package, stating that the package complies with the requirements.
There are over 10 CONEG compliant label materials offered that are laser printable, a few of which are also inkjet printable. There are metallic, glossy, clear, and color labels available.
