ROHS & WEEE compliance

The restriction of certain hazardous substances (ROHS) came into force on 1st July 2006.

Most of the products that Sequoia supplies are ROHS compliant and are described as such in the part number or description of advice notes or invoices. Our sales people are instructed to ensure that they discuss with our customers, when quoting or supplying, as to the compliance, or not, of the products in discussion.

We can issue a ROHS Certificate of Compliance with any shipment, upon request.

Waste and Electrical Equipment Directive (WEEE)

The WEEE directive compliments the ROHS directive by dealing with end equipment. If you have previously purchased equipment from us and it is no longer of use please click here to arrange disposal of this equipment under the WEEE directive.

Battery Regulations from 1st February 2010

As Sequoia supplies portable batteries, from 1st February 2010 we can accept back any used portable batteries for safe disposal, without charge to customers. We in turn will arrange collection from Sequoia ‘in bulk’ with an approved representative for the Battery Compliance Scheme.

We do not recommend postal returns but we can accept portable batteries at our office in Spencers Wood.

REACH Directive

The Registration Evaluation Authorisation (and restriction) of Chemicals regulations came into force 1st June 2007.

The purpose of REACH is to ensure that the most frequently used substances (in use now and in the future) are registered with safety data.

Some substances of very high concern (SVHC) may also need specific authorisation to use.

Sequoia does not have components that have chemicals that exceed one tonne per year or that contain Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC).
