Extended Producer Responsibility

Approach to Recycling

ORASCOPTICTM  supports the principle of Extended Producer Responsibility. We aim to contribute to the efficient use of resources and the retrieval of valuable raw materials through re-use, recycling and other forms of recovery. We therefore actively cooperate with our industry partners, the recycling community and other stakeholders to further improve the collection, treatment and recycling of our EEE products at the end of their lifetime.

ORASCOPTIC is recognized as a producer of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE), and where applicable, Battery, and has, therefore, taken necessary steps to be in compliance with the regulatory responsibilities as a registered producer on specific European markets. ORASCOPTICTM has established recycling contracts with country-approved recycling providers recognized as PROs, (compliance schemes) for the disposal of the specific products placed on the respective markets.
