VIIIConformance to CE MarkingIn order to improve safety, each plant has programs to comply with the Machinery Directive, the EMC Directive, and the Low Voltage Directive. Compliance to CE marking is also met. CE stands for "Conformité Européenne". CE marking indicates that a product complies with the essential requirements of the relevant European health, safety and environmental protection legislation.Major EU Directives relating to Mitutoyo productsName of EU DirectiveApplicable rangeMachinery DirectiveAt least one part of a machine that may cause injury to the human body if it moves due to movement of an actuator such as a motor.EMC Directive (Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive)A product that may produce electromagneticradiation or which is influenced by electromagnetic radiation from outside.Low Voltage DirectiveEquipment (device) that uses AC voltage of 50 to 1000 V or DC voltage of 75 to 1500 V.Radio Equipment DirectiveAll electrical and electronic equipment that intentionally transmits and receives radio waves at frequencies below 3000 GHz.RoHS DirectiveRestriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.Our products fall under Cat.9 “Monitoring and control instruments including industrial monitoring and control instruments”.Conformity evaluation for CE marking (EMC Directives)Response to Safety and Environmental Protection RegulationsResponse to WEEE DirectiveThe WEEE Directive*1 is a directive that mandates appropriate collection and recycling of electrical and electronic equipment waste.The purpose of this directive is to increase the reuse and recycling of these products, and seeks eco-friendly product design. To differentiate between equipment waste and household waste, a crossed-out wheeled-bin symbol is marked on a product. We will promote eco-friendly design for our products.*1 WEEE Directive: Directive 2012/19/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council on waste electrical and electronic equipment.Response to REACH RegulationREACH Regulation*2 is a regulation governing registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemical substances in Europe, and all products such as substances, mixtures and molded products (including accessories and packaging materials) are regulated. Chemical substances scientically proven to be substances that are hazardous to human health and the global environment (Candidate List of substances of very high concern for Authorisation (CLS)) are prohibited to be sold or information concerning them disclosed is mandated in Europe.We will actively disclose information about our products and provide replacement if we nd our products contain any of the listed substances.*2 REACH Regulation: Regulation (EC) No1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of ChemicalsResponse to Management Methods for Restricted Use of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Product (China RoHS 2)We set the environmental protection use period regulated by China RoHS 2 per product and label with the marks shown on the right, together with a list of the contained substances.*3 The environmental protection use period does not indicate the product warranty period."Environmental Protection Use Period" mark*3•Do not place the cell within an infant's reach. If swallowed, contact a doctor immediately.•Do not dismantle, heat or throw the cell in a re.•Do not try to charge the cell as it is not chargeable. Install the cell with correct polarity. Failure to do so can cause cell leakage or burst resulting in damage to the instrument or personal injury.•Do not solder directly to a cell.•Do not use new and used cells together. Do not use different types of cells together.•Do not use nor leave cells in direct sunlight nor in locations subject to high temperature or humidity.•If alkaline solution leaks from the cell and contacts your skin or clothes, immediately wash the affected area with water. IF IN EYES, immediately rinse eyes cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing and summon immediate assistance from a doctor.•Avoid letting cells contact water.•Ensure cells are inserted without coming into contact with metal parts of equipment.•Read the equipment instruction manual and precautions carefully before using. •Remove cells from equipment that will not be used for a prolonged period.•In case of disposal, insulate (+) and (-) terminals of a cell by applying an insulating material.•Follow the regulations of each country when disposing of batteries.Precautions to be taken when handling button cellsWarningCautionFailure to comply with the following could result in “death or serious injury”.Failure to comply with the following could result in “injury”.
