WEEE – Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment
The European Directive 2012/19/EU on waste of electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) aims to prevent or reduce the adverse impacts of WEEE on environment and human health. As technology advances, electronic device life cycles become shorter. The replaced products, developed with valuable resources, become electronic waste and, when misplaced or disposed improperly, can present a risk.
Brainlab considers the principles of sustainable production and consumption and contributes to prevent generation of unnecessary WEEE. Our products are designed taking into account the possibility to repair, upgrade, re-use, disassemble and recycle, while making medical technology and knowledge more impactful and accessible to physicians and their patients.
In the case your Brainlab product requires recycling, please find below the recycling instructions for the safe disposal within your country.
Contact [email protected] or [email protected] in case of further questions.
In accordance with directive 2012/19/EU in Articles 14 and 15, electrical and electronic equipment must be marked with a crossed-out wheelie bin symbol. This symbol indicates that the marked device must not be disposed of with normal household waste, but rather must be collected separately.
Please note that the deletion of personal data on devices that are to be disposed of is the sole responsibility of the end user.
According to Directive 2006/66/EC, please remove batteries from any electronic item to be disposed of and dispose them separately.
