QUALITY AND ENVIRONMENT
At Industrilas the most important parameters for management and follow-up of our operations are our co-workers, our customers and our environment– in other words Work Place Safety, Customer Satisfaction and minimal Environmental Impact. Industrilas has acquired a platform of different tools in order to manage, direct and supervise the processes, activities, and communications of theenterprise. The platform is today known as IMS, Industrilas Management Systems, and the tools are statutes, regulations and standards. The most important ones are listed below.
External accredited test laboratories perform required tests. Internally we have available facilities for durability tests, cycle tests and IP-protection, among others.
(Management System for Quality)

The purpose of this standard is to encourage companies to institute and maintain an environmental management system.

(Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment) The RoHS-directive prohibits or restricts the use of certain hazardous substances, such as mercury, lead, cadmium, fire retardants PBB and PBDE and hexavalent chromium in electrical and electronic products released on the market after July 1, 2006.
The threshold limit value for the hazardous substances are 0.1 weight percentage. Cadmium is only permissible at 0.01 weight percentage. Those who market a product covered by RoHS are responsible for the product’s compliance with the stated requirements in the directive. Today other industries are also applying parts of the RoHS-directive voluntarily in order to reduce the large quantities of hazardous waste. (The RoHS-directive 2002/95/EG is included in Swedish Statutes SFS
Industrilas products are RoHS-compliant - with one notable exception: some rubber profiles contain a certain percentage of recycled rubber and these products are not RoHS-compliant.

(Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals)
Since June 1, 2007 the new EU regulation REACH has been in effect, and it replaced large portions of the then current Swedish statutes governing the chemical industry. It involves an extensive set of rules that are gradually implemented over a period of many years. Some of these rules went into effect on June 1, 2007. The regulation will end up affecting considerably more companies than were covered by the previous chemical statutes, however to varying degrees.

(Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment)
The purpose of the directive is to focus on the collection, storage, transport, treatment and recycling of WEEE as well as its preparation for re-use, all of which shall be conducted with an approach geared toward protecting the environment and human health and preserving raw materials, and shall aim at recycling valuable resources contained in EEE with a view to ensuring a better supply of commodities within the Union.
