Are there any laws or mandates with which Zebra must comply?
There are a number of environmental directives from the European Union (EU) and other parts of the world–some new, some recently updated–that affect the manner in which Zebra designs, manufactures, packages, and disposes of our products. Three of the more significant EU directives that influence the design of Zebra products are:
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (the WEEE directive) - The intent is to increase the recycling rate electronic equipmentat end of life.
Restriction of Hazardous Substances - Reduce or eliminate the use of the identified hazardous substances in electronic equipment (the RoHS directive).
The reduction of packaging waste (the Packaging Assessments directive).
