Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment management(WEEE)
By royal decree 208/2005, of 25 February, on electrical and electronic equipment and the management of their waste, establishes the need for producers of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) to put in place systems for the proper management of waste that these devices generate, when its lifetime ends. In order to comply with these obligations, as allowed by royal decree 208/2005 Royal in Articles 7 and 8, TELNET Redes Inteligentes S.A., as producer of AEE, has opted for the management of WEEE through the Integrated Management System Of the ECOTIC Foundation. TELNET Intelligent Networks S.A. Aims to promote and motivate attitudes and behaviors that favor the collection and recycling of WEEE, to contribute to the environmental improvement and sustainable development. By properly disposing this type of products, we help to avoid the negative consequences for the environment and human health that could result from the incorrect disposal of electrical and electronic equipment. TELNET Redes Inteligentes S.A. offers the possibility of withdrawing at no cost, the WEEE from our brands, to proceed to its environmental treatment by authorized managers. TELNET Redes Inteligentes S.A. is registered in the national register of producers of electrical and electronic equipment (REI-RAEE), managed by the Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Trade, under number 1746.
