VBrick WEEE Policy (WEEE Directive 2002/96/EC)
VBrick manufactures Video Encoding and Decoding appliances which are affected by the WEEE directive. These include:
- VB6000 Range of Video Encoder and Decoders
- VBrick IP Receiver
VBrick also integrates software onto other manufacturer’s platforms which are also covered by the WEEE Directive. These include software installed onto Servers for Video on Demand, Web Server, and Video Archive applications.
According to the WEEE Directive, these products purchased prior to August 13, 2005 can be returned for recycling. For the B2B products VBrick does not need to join the local authorities’ collection systems throughout the EU but can make different arrangements with the customers (Directive 2002/96/EC Article 9 and Amendment WEEE 2003/108/EC).

VBrick's RoHS Policy (RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC)
Per the RoHS Directive (Directive 2002/95/EC) from the European Union (EU), VBrick has placed only RoHS compliant electrical/electronic equipment (EEE) on the market in the EU after June 30, 2006. Details about specific VBrick products are available upon request.
VBrick's RoHS compliance planning is based on conformance to the RoHS Directive issued by the EU, and not on any specific Member State legislation or legislation from any other countries. As other environmental regulations are passed by the U.S. or other countries in which VBrick does business, VBrick's compliance planning will respond accordingly.
VBrick is relying on the lead-in-solder exemption for servers, storage, storage arrays, and telecommunications equipment, when applicable. The electronics industry is examining the data on lead-free solder and VBrick is collaborating with the industry research on this topic.
Labeling is not required by the RoHS Directive and no industry or regulatory standard for RoHS labeling exists. Currently, VBrick does not intend to label products as RoHS-compliant.
VBrick provides the following certificates of conformity for all products that comply with the RoHS Directives listed above. We also supply links on that same site to all manufacturers' products that we resell or integrate.
