WEEE Directive 2012/19/EU
Waste Management (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulation 2005 & 2008 plus Waste Management (Batteries and Accumulators) Regulations 2008.
In June 2000, the European Commission proposed possibilities to approach the issue of increasing quantities of electrical and electronic waste. In December 2002, these proposals were passed as the EU Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) Directive (updated in the WEEE Directive 2012/19/EU).
The WEEE Directive has since been implemented by the EU member states via passing appropriate national laws within the respective legal framework that impose specific requirements on producers and distributors of electronic and electrical equipment.
Please read the following information about the ways of disposal and recycling GS Medical can offer you.
How does it work?
GS Medical is a member of WEEE Ireland, a compliance scheme that supervises the handling (collection, treatment, recycling) of batteries and electronic equipment at the end of their life-cycles. If you have ordered electrical or electronic equipment covered by the WEEE Directive from GS Medical to an Irish address, you may use the option, free of charge, that we take back your old equipment on a one-for-one and like-for-like basis, i. e. the equipment which is to be taken back by us must equal in type and quantity the new electrical or electronic equipment you purchased from us. For example, if you buy an electronic medical device such as a SURESTORE™, we will only allow the take back free of charge of an old equivalent medical device from you. Furthermore, the old one must be returned to our premises within 21 days upon delivery of the new one.
Treatment and recycling of your old equipment will be conducted in compliance with the appropriate regulations. If you would like to opt for this possibility, please contact our customer service:
