Materials

Doro seeks to select materials with the least possible impact on the environment. As more environmentally friendly materials are developed, we assess whether they can replace those currently used.

Registration of chemicals according to REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restrictions of Chemicals.) concerns importers or manufacturers of chemical substances. As an importer of finished products with a final technical specification and design from a non-EU manufacturing unit, and since these products do not emit any chemical substances in normal use, Doro is not required to register or report its use of any chemicals. However, the products must comply with the disclosure requirements of REACH’s SVHC section (Substances of Very High Concern). These requirements do not in themselves impose any limitations, but require informing distributors and users if the threshold for any listed chemical is exceeded.

There are several EU directives and regulations that affect Doro’s operations. The more exhaustive ones include the Directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances, RoHS, and the regulation on Persistent Organic Pollutants, POP.
