Anritsu's statement with regard to WEEE, RoHS and REACH

WEEE – End of Life Product Management

The EU region “Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment directive” (WEEE) affects end-of-life recycling for all electrical and electronic equipment. Anritsu is fully committed to playing its part in the preservation of the environment, and embraces the WEEE Directive (Directive 2012/19/EU). Applicable products shipped by Anritsu starting August 2005 are marked with the WEEE symbol (commonly known as the 'Crossed-out Wheeled Bin').

For EU recycling of products placed on the market after August 13, 2005, please check your manual or contact your local Anritsu representative to arrange disposal in accordance with your initial contract and local law.


Waste Batteries – End of Life Product Management

To comply with the various regulations of EU member states, we are obliged to take back free of charge, waste industrial batteries supplied to an end user for treatment and recycling. We are required to do this in any calendar year we place new industrial batteries on the market.

If any of our customers or, in certain cases, other end users, require us to take back industrial batteries, you should contact your local Anritsu representative to arrange disposal in accordance with local law. We will agree the necessary arrangements for the return, proper treatment and recycling of the waste industrial batteries.

RoHS Compliance

Anritsu fully complies with the EU RoHS directive (Directive 2011/65/EU). Anritsu‘s major product lines are considered industrial monitoring and control equipment (category 9), and will therefore come into scope for EU RoHS starting 22 July 2017.


Anritsu hereby certifies that to the best of its knowledge, and based on our suppliers’ information, parts and products produced by Anritsu do not contain any of the substances referenced in the current list of Substances of High Concern (SVHC)* in concentrations greater than 0.1% weight by weight on the date stated above, except for DEHP (Bis 2-ethylhexyl phthalate) found in flexible electrical cords in some of our products (those containing power cords, external cables, or other interconnect cables) and on articles where there is an exemption for EU RoHS.

*SVHCs are defined in Article 57 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006.
