Compliance with REACH, RoHS, and WEEE is, among other initiatives, part of our quality promise. Basler fulfills all these requirements and works closely with all our suppliers to assure constant compliance.
To optimize our operations and processes even further, we prepared and successfully implemented a comprehensive quality management system. In the spirit of DIN EN ISO 9001:2015, we implemented integrated management system with a focus on continuous improvements in all sequences of operations.
Basler has proven its high quality standards for the development, production, distribution and service of digital cameras with the certification according to ISO 13485:2016. For you, this means: consistency, reliability and quality.
With the introduction of the standard in certain organizational areas for the development, production, distribution and service of selected products, we adapted our quality management system to the requirements of the medical world. This makes it possible for us to help you with the auditing of your medical products or the preparation for the certification.

The European WEEE Guideline 2012/96/EC (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment) is intended to prevent the waste of electrical and electronic devices or reduce it through reuse and recycling.
In Germany, the guideline is represented by the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG), the implementation of which is ensured by the national registration agency stiftung EAR (Stiftung Elektro-Altgeräte Register). It coordinates the disposal of old equipment at municipal collection points throughout Germany and records the electrical devices released into the market.
For that reason, all manufacturers of electronic products are required to register with stiftung EAR before the start of sales and adhere to its disclosure requirements. Following the successful registration, companies receive a registration number, known as the WEEE number.
You can find the WEEE number of Basler AG in our Legal Info.
