Accreditation & ISO Certification
Our UK division has been ISO 9001 accredited since 1986.
In February 2006, the VDI Group obtained ISO 9001-2008 certification, proof of each and every employee's commitment to work towards zero defects for optimum customer satisfaction.
The European Parliament and Council of the European Union RoHS Directive of 27 January 2003 specifically restricts the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
On the basis of the DEEE Directive (on electrical and electronic equipment waste) and the RoHS Directive, at its meeting on 17 December 2003, the Technical Adaptation Committee (CAT) reached the conclusion that neither of these Directives affected batteries.
Since batteries are not subject to the RoHS Directive, the investigation concerns the presence of hazardous substances in components or connections:
- Hexavalent chromium
- Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB)
- Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE)
Under their own initiative, some of our suppliers have brought an end to the use of lead-based brazing metals for welding plating (pre-welded tags). In this way, AllBatteries with welded tags should use lead-free plating.
We also adhere to European Parliament Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of 18 December 2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH).
