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.

Confirmation of RoHS compliance
Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances (2002/95/EC RoHS 1 and 2011/65/EU RoHS 2) is an EU Directive targeted at reducing hazardous materials used in the production of electronic devices. This directive bans placement on the European market of electrical and electronic equipment containing lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd) hexavalent chromium (Cr(VI)), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenylethers (PBDE) above a specified limit. This ban is effective as of July 1, 2006.
The EU commission has published a new Directive (EU) 2015/863 (RoHS 3) to amend Annex II to Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2) to add the following 4 phthalates onto the list of restricted substances: Bis(2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP), Dibutyl phthalate (DBP), Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP).
Basler commits to fulfilling the RoHS rules and regulations according to Directive 2002/95/EC, Directive 2011/65/EU and Directive 2015/863/EU (RoHS 3) for all our cameras.

China RoHS Compliance
To meet the requirements of our customers, especially those in the Chinese marketplace, Basler is in compliance with the China Management Methods for Controlling Pollution by Electronic Information Products (China RoHS).
On March 01, 2007, the China Ministry of Information Industry announced China's requirements for the "Management Methods for Controlling Pollution Caused by Electronic Information Products Regulation." These requirements spell out Chinese policy on the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) used in Electronic Information Products (EIPs) (see SJ/T11363-2006).
The Chinese "Management Methods" are similar to European Union RoHS requirements because they recognize the same six hazardous substances and the same maximum concentration levels. Unlike EU RoHS, the Chinese regulations do not recognize any hazardous substance exemptions. The "Management Methods" document also defines requirements for product labeling and hazardous substance level disclosure.
Product Marking Explanation
Basler meets the "Management Methods" requirements by providing adequate labeling and hazardous substance disclosure for all products that fall under the EIP definition. In accordance with the requirements, Basler marks all EIPs sold in the People's Republic of China with pollution control logos.
The following illustrations show the markings that apply to all Basler products.
Environmentally Friendly Use Period
The environmentally friendly use period (EFUP) is the number of years from the date of manufacture that toxic or hazardous substances or elements contained in EIPs will not leak or mutate under normal operating conditions and result in any environmental pollution, bodily injury, or damage to assets.
The manufacture date of each product is encoded into the product's serial number.
Contact your support or sales headquarter to obtain the manufacture date of your specific product.
Packaging Recycling Marks
The requirements also specify that EIP packaging must be marked in accordance with the needs and requirements for recycling, reuse, and regeneration (see GB 18455-2001).
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.
KC - Certification for Korea
Electrical and electronic products entering South Korea are subject to KC Certification, a mandatory certification scheme, which ensures that only products certified by accepted certification bodies can enter the South Korean market. The scheme verifies safety as well as Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) and Radio Frequency (RF) requirements.
