RoHS and WEEE Policy
To reduce and eventually eliminate hazardous materials contained in electronic components and systems from the environment, the electronics industry has adopted certain global environmental initiatives. These include RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) and WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment). As a globally responsible corporate citizen, Aurora is committed to preserving the environment and complying with all current and future RoHS, RoHS China and WEEE Directives.
European Union and RoHS/WEEE
European Union (EU) Directives on restricting the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS) and on the disposition of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) regulate the creation and disposal of electrical and electronic equipment placed on the EU market. Aurora Networks complies with all of the current European Union RoHS, China RoHS and WEEE Directives.
What is RoHS?
RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances (European Directive 2002/95/EC), and was adopted in 2003 by the European Union (EU). Enforcement of this standard by the EU began on July 1, 2006. The six restricted substances are: cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVl), lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), polybromated biphenyls (PBBs), and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs). Not all EU countries have adopted RoHS. Some non-EU countries such as China have their own version of RoHS.
What is WEEE?
WEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (European Directive 2002/96/EC), and regulates the collection, recycling and disposal of all types of electrical and electronic products. It aims to minimize the environmental damage from discarded end-of-life electrical products.

Compliance with RoHS and WEEE
Aurora Networks works closely with its supply chain to ensure ongoing conformity to the EU Directives, as well as to procuring and using only dependable, environmentally safe alternatives to hazardous materials.
A large amount of electrical and electronic waste is disposed of today without any thought to the environment. To assist EU member states in minimizing environmental damage from discarded end-of-life electrical products, Aurora Networks strives to recycle in compliance with the WEEE Directive any of its products that cannot be re-used.
To initiate the WEEE process, Aurora Networks customers should:
- Never discard any unused or obsolete electronic equipment in household or office garbage.
- Arrange for the proper recycling of all unneeded electronic equipment.
To recycle Aurora Networks equipment, contact Customer Service by completing and submitting the online WEEE Recycle Request form. Please note that the form must be fully completed to expedite processing.
