The RoHS 2 Directive (Restriction of use of certain Hazardous Substances) restricts the use of 6 hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment. NETASQ complies fully with its obligations, as detailed below. This Directive requires that products launched in EU markets after 2 January 2013, should contain restricted quantities of the following 6 substances:
- Hexavalent chromium

NETASQ products are fully compliant with this directive.
WEEE and recycling of NETASQ products
The WEEE Directive imposes obligations upon manufacturers of EU Member States to recycle the waste from electrical and electronic products.
To meet its obligations in respect of WEEE and historical waste, NETASQ has entrusted its WEEE management to its manufacturing partners. All aspects of processing and recycling of EEE waste products and historical waste carried out on behalf of NETASQ will be effected in accordance with WEEE Directive ordinances.
All NETASQ products governed by the WEEE Directive which have been delivered within the European Union since 13 August 2005, are designated by an icon showing a wheelie bin marked with a cross. This mark indicates that the product complies with the obligations imposed by the WEEE Directive in terms of disposal and reuse. The cost of recycling NETASQ products launched after 13 August 2005 is included in the price of the product.
For EEE and historic waste launched before 13 August 2005, the cost of waste recycling and transport to the recycling centre is the responsibility of the customer.
