Quality Management

We consider the high quality standard of our products as the most important basis for the satisfaction of our customers and thus for the long-term success of our company. To achieve these quality standards, we take it for granted that, the hardware and software are developed in-house using only high quality electronic components. A great deal of development work is used to make our products safe far beyond the required limits for operation in the environment of electromagnetic interference fields.
Our quality management system has been certified to ISO-9001 since 1995, currently according to the latest standard DIN ISO 9001: 2015 .

 

 

Directive 2011/65 EC – Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS II)

ELREHA GmbH, a manufacturing company for electronic control systems and controllers for industrial and commercial needs in refrigeration, the beverage and food industry, and solar and laboratory technology, has been committed to ensuring compliance with the RoHS directive, since the inception of Directive 2002/95/EG in 2006, manufacturing and providing the markets with 100% RoHS compliant products ever since.

Directive 2015/863 EC – Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS III)

On the 31st of March, 2015,  the Delegated Directive 2015/863 announced a change to Annex II of the RoHS directive 2011/65/EU for the restriction of use of designated hazardous substances in electro and electronic devices.
Via periodic evaluations of the Annex II, it was determined that the following four phthalates would be added to the list.

In brackets, the maximum concentration, allowed in homogeneous material, are shown as percent mass:

• Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP / 0,1%)
• Butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP / 0,1%)
• Di butyl phthalate (DBP / 0,1%)
• Diiso butyl phthalate (DIBP / 0,1%)

For these phthalates, which are currently known as reproductive toxicants, harmless replacements are available.
With this release, all member states are invited, to bring this regulation into effect, by 22 July 2019.

The restriction would apply to medical devices, industrial monitoring and control instruments, effective 22 July 2021.
This commitment also applies for the restriction of use of substances of the Directive 2015/863/EU.
We continue to work, in cooperation with our suppliers, to evaluate and adapt our product portfolio in order to ensure that we meet all the requirements of Directive 2015/863, by the 22 July 2019 deadline.
