Certified Quality Management and Environmental Management
ept is certified in accordance with the latest quality management standards ISO 9001 and IATF 16949 (for automotive products) as well as the ISO 14001 environmental management standard and the ISO 50001 energy management standard.
ept has considered the environmental compatibility of its newly developed products for a long time now. In order to comply with the European Directive mentioned above, RoHS compliant components were used for our products already in 2004. However, during this conversion quality assurance has always been top priority; no concessions have been made regarding the functionality and design of our press-fit technology. Lead-free connectors are up to 100 % compatible and can be press-fit into "leaded" printed circuit boards without any problem.
In the future ept will continue to adapt its product development to the latest directives and consider environment protection aspects.
ept does adhere to the December 18, 2006 European Commission (EC) regulation 1907/2006 (REACH).
The products ept purchases from its suppliers and uses in the production processes do not contain materials from the December 16, 2013 SVHC list (substances of very high concern) in a concentration of more than 0.1% mass.
