Regulatory Compliance

InFocus products meet the essential legal requirements in the form of directives, regulations and harmonised standards for the markets we operate in.

REACH

REACH

REACH is the European Community Regulation on the tracking of chemicals and notification to relevant stakeholders to ensure their safe use (EC 1907/2006). It deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemical substances. The law entered into force on 1 June 2007.
For more info visit European Commission and European Chemicals Agency
The candidate list of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC), which need to be tracked and are updated regularly can be viewed on the website of the European Chemical Agency.
REACH requires InFocus to provide customers with sufficient information on Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) when contained in products in concentration above 0.1% weight by weight (w/w) to allow safe use of the product.

REACH

RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC

RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC

This directive limits the use of hazardous substances in electric appliances and electronic devices (RoHS). Essentially, it covers six substances lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, and polybrominated diphenyl ethers. All products launched on the market since January 2006 fulfill the RoHS directive.

RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC

RoHS 2 Directive 2011/65/EU

RoHS 2 Directive 2011/65/EU

The RoHS 2 directive is an evolution of the original directive, became law on 21 July 2011 and took effect 2 January 2013. It addresses the same substances as the original directive while improving regulatory conditions and legal clarity. It requires periodic re-evaluations that facilitate the gradual broadening of its requirements to cover additional electronic and electrical equipment, cables, and spare parts.
The CE logo now indicates compliance and the RoHS 2 declaration of conformity is now detailed: Today, a product sold with a valid CE mark must satisfy the RoHS 2 directive (and other CE requirements). This includes the CE-required Declaration of Conformance (DoC) document and technical documentation as created by the manufacturer. The DoC details applicable directives and includes a sign-off by a corporate spokesperson. However, the CE mark does not necessarily indicate that a given product has minimal hazardous substances, as even products exempt under RoHS 2 may display it.

WEEE Directive

WEEE Directive

End-users and consumers must be informed about which waste electrical or electronic equipment cannot be disposed of via domestic waste collection. This is achieved through the placement of a crossed-out Wheelie bin logo to an appropriate and visible area of the product. All InFocus products carry the logo, and we are registered with the appropriate authorities and collectives for the disposal of electronic equipment.

WEEE Directive

Directive on Energy-related Products (ErP) 2009/125/EG

Directive on Energy-related Products (ErP) 2009/125/EG

This directive aims to improve the environmental impact of products that operate using energy by specifying even more energy-efficient measures and more specific ecological design requirements. In addition to reducing power consumption, the directive is also geared towards the product’s life cycle, from the development right through to the disposal phase. Thus when it comes to displaying products, the materials consumption, radiation, and toxicity of materials used are taken into consideration and, accordingly, are implemented in the product development and production phases by InFocus.
The first ErP regulation to come into force is the Regulation for standby and off mode, which is effective as of January 2010. Tighter standby and off modes were set for January 2013. The objective of this Regulation is to reduce the energy consumption of all household and office products. As a general rule, products must have an off mode (0W) and/or a standby mode (<0.5W).

Regulation EU801/2013

Regulation EU801/2013

On 22 August 2013, EU issued Regulation EU801/2013 with additional eco-design requirements for networked equipment (mainly network standby power consumption) This new eco-design regulation amends the following existing directives: 

  • EC1275/2008 for standby / off mode of household and office equipment 
  • EC642/2009 with regards to eco-design requirements for televisions 

As a general rule, products that can be networked must contain “networked standby” mode – a mode in which the product is able to resume (wake up) after a remotely initiated trigger via a wired or wireless network connection with power consumption in “networked standby” mode of <2W.

Energy Efficiency: Energy Labelling of Products

Energy Efficiency: Energy Labelling of Products

From 1 March 2021, the Regulation on energy labeling for electronic displays (EU) 2019/2013 came into effect. Televisions and other electronic displays, like computer monitors and touch displays, will be labeled on an energy efficiency scale that ranges from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient). The new scaling system is improved and better take into account the screen area of the display. The new labels will also show the efficiency of a product when it shows content in HDR, as it can consume twice as much energy as other settings. In addition, the label will also show information on the diagonal size of the display and the resolution level, so that consumers can better compare similar displays.
