Product safety

Manufacturers play a crucial role in ensuring that products sold in the European Economic Area (EEA) are safe and meet the EU standards for safety, health and environmental protection. Electronic devices must have a CE marking, which means that the manufacturer declares that the product meets all the legal requirements and can be sold throughout the EEA. This also applies to products made in other countries that are sold in the EEA. CE marking also supports fair competition by holding all companies accountable to the same rules. All products in Focus Nordic’s assortment that contain electronic components have CE marking.

Environmental impact

In order to reduce the environmental impact, the majority of all logistic transports are shipped by boat. We are actively working together with our logistic partners to minimize the carbon emission and fuel consumption.

We are reducing the use of paper, for example by handling invoices digital, and unnecessary packaging materials by using recycled and sustainable materials.

The EU Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) was entered into force in 2003. It provided for the creation of collection schemes where consumers return their electrical and electronic equipment free of charge. The schemes aim to increase the recycling and re-use of electrical and electronic waste.

Placing batteries on the European market entails producer responsibility for batteries according to the EU Directive on Waste Batteries & Accumulators. The directive intends to minimize the negative impact of batteries, accumulators and waste batteries and accumulators by harmonizing requirements, prohibiting batteries with hazardous substances and establishing schemes for collecting and recycling batteries.

The EU Directive on Managing Packaging and Packaging Waste aims to preventing and reducing the impact of packaging and packaging waste on the environment, promoting reuse, recycling and other forms of recovering of packaging waste instead of its final disposal.
