The RoHS Directive aims to prevent the risks posed to human health and the environment related to the management of electronic and electrical waste.

It does this by restricting the use of certain hazardous substances in EEE that can be substituted by safer alternatives. These restricted substances include heavy metals, flame retardants or plasticizers.

The Directive promotes the recyclability of EEE, as EEE and its components that have become waste contain fewer hazardous substances. At the same time, it ensures a level playing field for manufacturers and importers of EEE in the European market.

“BS5609 compliance means the label has met the most stringent tests for durability in the industry and can withstand a three-month salt water submersion. Such rigorous standards ensure that if a chemical drum falls off a ship, the label will remain adhered, intact and legible after an extended period in the ocean.

This adhesive is predominately used on our labels and is commonly known as the gold standard of adhesives.


Did you know? that PVC is not Rohs compliant, however, there are many alternatives on the market today which in many cases are better and cheaper.

Please be aware all materials have to be certified every 5 years.
