    product end-of-life requirements

    KANATA, ON, Nov. 23 /CNW Telbec/ - Intertek Ageus Solutions
( a leader in global environmental compliance
consulting, technology services, and product stewardship, has a clear,
comprehensive, and affordable approach to meeting the treatment and
dismantling instructions requirements of the WEEE Directive (2002/96/EC), the
"Provision of Recycling Information" requirement for the Act for Resource
Recycling of Electric Electronic Equipment (Korea RoHS), the materials
declaration requirement of Japan Green (JGPSSI), and US EPEAT's treatment
instructions requirement.
    For each product, Intertek Ageus Solutions generates a recycling passport
document comprising all of the necessary details, including graphics and
descriptions, to meet the WEEE Directive, Korea RoHS' "Provision of Recycling
Information," Japan Green dismantling instructions' requirement and US EPEAT's
treatment instructions requirement.

    Key Elements of Intertek Ageus Solutions' Treatment Instruction Service:

    - Ability to evaluate each client's product line and provide the most
      efficient and thorough path towards document creation
    - Real-time document revision that runs in conjunction with product
      alterations and re-designs for documents that Intertek Ageus Solutions
      has created
    - Evaluation and criteria grading of 3rd party documentation existing for
      sourced assemblies in a product BOM
    - Comprehensive training sessions for document creation

    The creation of documentation to meet the WEEE Directive re-use and
treatment information requirements is not a well understood process for most
electronics manufacturers. As a starting point, most electronics manufacturers
are not aware that the materials declaration requirements of the
WEEE Directive are different than those of the RoHS Directive, as well as the
materials declaration requirements of the Joint Industry Guide (JIG) and
    Intertek Ageus Solutions' industry leading experts utilize a step-by-step
approach to clearly and comprehensively meet the documentation requirements of
the WEEE Directive, Korea RoHs, Japan Green, and US EPEAT requirements.

    Intertek Ageus Solutions' Treatment Instructions include:

    - Corporate information
    - Product information
    - Declaration and location of materials requiring selective treatment
    - Declaration of valuable materials and materials of interest to

    "As electronics recycling becomes more of a business of requirements, the
demand for dismantling instructions and materials declarations will only
increase. Many system integrators and distributors now specifically request
dismantling instructions to be available for all of the products in their
supply chain," notes Intertek Ageus Solutions President, Bruce Calder. "To
meet these demands, Intertek Ageus Solutions experienced staff is well
prepared to meet your recycling documentation needs."
