For 50 years, ASSMANN Electronic GmbH has been the worldwide solution provider for data network technology with products from our established brand DIGITUS® for network technology, installation cables, computer components, video solutions and much more.
Our employees, suppliers and partners have been working together with us in trust for many decades now. So we observe the guidelines of the RoHS and REACH Regulation.
On request, we can provide you with our RoHs and REACH Declaration of Conformity, also in written form.
Each area is managed by one trainee and supported by four to six other trainees.
Below are the three areas, each with a concrete example so that you can get an idea of what topics are driving us forward.
The first topic is "MOBILITY".
For example, all flight data will be evaluated and the CO2 consumption of all flights from 2018 will be calculated with the aim of compensating these. More information can be found on atmosfair.de.
The second team deals with the topic "BUILDINGS AND CONSUMERS".
Among other things, we take a look at electricity consumption, which is unnecessarily driven up by outdated equipment, for example.
The third team is working on the subject area "PRODUCTS AND VALUABLE MATERIALS", in which, for example, product ranges and packaging are examined in more detail. This is also done in exchange with our suppliers, who have been informed about the project and the problems.
According to the European Environmental Guideline RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances), certain hazardous substances may not be used for electrical and electronic devices.
Since 1 June 2006, the EU Guideline 2002/95/EU has allowed only minimal traces of lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg), chromium VI (Cr-VI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), polybrominated biphenylethers (PBBE or PBDE) in devices and products. All products we deliver from current production meet the requirements of the RoHS Guidelines.
This means that our products contain none or the allowable quantity of the substances named in this regulation.
We assure you that we are doing whatever is necessary to supply you with the proven quality of our products also in the future.
The REACH Regulation (EU No. 1907/2006) of the European Union went into effect on 1 June 2007. The goal of this regulation is that all substances produced, imported and used in the EU have no negative impact on health and environment.
We are aware of our obligations towards the REACH Regulation and are committed to the protection of human health and the environment. ASSMANN Electronic GmbH does not produce any chemical substances. We deliver only "products" that are not defined as "substances" or "preparations". None of the products that are manufactured and imported into the EU by ASSMANN Electronic GmbH release substances when used properly.
None of the products we deliver contain any of the substances listed in the SVHC beyond permitted limits. Thus the mandatory registration of substances according to the REACH Regulation does not apply to our manufactured and imported products.
However: We support the overall goal of the REACH Regulation and ensure that our partners and suppliers also act responsible according to the REACH Regulation and meet all conditions. We are at your disposal for any questions you might have.
