We continually monitor and manage quality across all our operations. Our subsidiaries are certified to the ISO 9001:2008 standard, which means they meet the rigid manufacturing and quality management standards set by the ISO, the International Standards Organization.
Conflict minerals are minerals mined in conditions of armed conflict and human rights abuses, notably in the eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, by the Congolese National Army and various armed rebel groups, including the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda.
REACH is the EU regulation governing the placement on the market of chemical substances. It is an acronym for the “Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals”. FRABA does not manufacture or distribute any product that intentionally release chemicals, or any substances of concern, as described in the REACH Directive. Therefore our products are not affected by the REACH Directive and do not require registration.
RoHS is the EU Directive that restricts the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic products (EEE products). RoHS mandates that EEE products must not contain more than 0.1% (except for cadmium which is limited to 0.01%) by weight of homogenous material of any of listed substances. Homogenous material means a material that cannot be mechanically disjointed into different materials.
FRABA complies with all of the requirements of the RoHS (2002/95/EC) and RoHS2 (2011/65/EU) directives.
Product specific certificates are available on request.
The WEEE directive is intended to prevent waste consisting of electrical and electronic equipment from being introduced to the waste stream. If the device is covered under the directive, it places the responsibility for disposal, and or recycling, of WEEE on its producer.
Products manufactured or distributed by FRABA are not covered in the scope of the WEEE Directive because they do not fall within any of the defined product categories. Our products are always integrated in larger systems or pieces of equipment, and therefore are not "stand-alone" equipment as defined by the Technical Adaptation Committee (TAC).
