Compliance and Standards

Our footprint is one that breathes

At BlueAnt we care about the environment and endeavour to design our products in such a way as to lessen the environmental impact they have.

We use recyclable materials for packaging and components where practical to do so, and by making our products firmware upgradeable, we give them a longer lease on life.

We also stand by the warranty on our products and support them with friendly technical support to ensure our customers can utilise their BlueAnt product for at least the full term of the warranty period.

We also comply with the legal requirements with regards to RoHS*, CE* and WEEE*.

Every step of the way in product design, manufacturing and distribution we strive to lessen our environmental impact and make sure our footprint is one that breathes.

 

RoHS

RoHS (Restriction of Use of Hazardous Substances) regulations limit or ban specific substances (lead, cadmium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB), mercury, hexavalent chromium, and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants) in new electronic and electric equipment.

WEEE

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directive is legislation that, in conjunction with RoHS, mandates targets for the collection, recovery and recycling of electronics and component materials. Manufacturers are responsible for the disposal of their products and must deal with their disposal in an environmentally responsible manner.

CE

The CE marking (known as CE mark) is a mandatory conformance mark on many products placed on the single market in the European Economic Area (EEA). The CE marking certifies that a product has met EU consumer safety, health or environmental requirements.

CTick

Compliance with the Australian EMC regulations are mandatory and apply to almost all electronic products supplied to the Australian market. Application of the C-Tick mark signifies compliance with appropriate Australian EMC standard.

Recycling

The recycling symbol is an internationally recognised symbol used to designate recyclable materials. It is composed of three chasing arrows that form a Möbius strip or unending loop. The Recycling loop: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

FCC

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates interstate and foreign communications by radio, television, wire, satellite, and Cable Television.

Bluetooth

Bluetooth is a telecommunications industry specification that describes how mobile phones, computers and personal digital assistants (PDAs) can be easily interconnected using a short range wireless connection.

Efficiency Mark

The international efficiency mark consists of a Roman numeral (I - VII) and is to be printed on the power supply nameplate. The scale is designed with I being the least stringent (least efficient) level and VII being the highest (most efficient). To date, levels I - V have been set and levels VI and beyond have been reserved for future use as more stringent levels are established.
