Network TAPs And Environmental Compliance


A Company-Wide Dedication To Environmental And Quality Standards

Garland Technology is dedicated to more than providing better network design with supeior network TAPs. We are fully committed to adhering to the strictest criteria for regulatory standards compliance. We strive to fulfill rigorous qualifications to best serve our community, customers, partners, employees, and more. Garland Technology has full certification under RoHS, RoHS2, SVHC, REACH, and WEEE.

RoHS

RoHS is a European Union (EU) Directive established to restrict hazard substances in Electrical and Electrons Equipment (EEE). The goal is to limit the component concentration of six hazardous substances that harm the environment. It covers a wide range of products, including not only network TAPs and integrated electrical and electronic products, but also individual parts, raw materials, and packing cases.

RoHS2

RoHS2 was adopted by the European Council on May 2, 2011, with inclusion of Category 8 (medical devices from 2014) and Category 9 (control and monitoring instruments from 2014) and also new Category 11, which captures all other electrical equipment (from 2019) and incorporates new CE Marking requirements.

SVHC

Garland Technology’s network TAPs and other products do not contain Substances of Very High Concern.

REACH

REACH took effect on June 1, 2007, and is the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use. It requires the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of CHemical substances. REACH protects human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of relevant chemical substances. REACH also encourages innovation and competition among businesses to improve safety.

WEEE

The European WEEE Directive puts specific responsibilities on companies to handle Waste of Electronics and Electrical Equipment. The major goal is to reduce the waste arising from electrical and electronic equipment, as well as improve the environmental performance of those involved in the life cycle of electrical and electronic products. The WEEE Directive covers both consumers and professional organizations. It affects those involved in manufacturing, selling, distributing, recycling, and treating of electrical and electronic equipment.
