Duro Metall is one of the most notable suppliers of bars, plates, forgings and finished products out of copper base alloys to different branches of industry. The requirements of a wide variety of our customers led to an early implementation of the DIN EN ISO 9001 quality management system.

We have introduced a quality and environment policy statement (PDF, 68 KB) that provides a basis for dealing with the environment.

The western world has been experiencing rapid expansion and further development in environmental awareness for quite some time, which has resulted in European Community laws that have been converted into country-specific laws in the member states.

Households and industry are currently being directly affected by the

  • "WEEE" (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment directive 2002/96/EC)
  • "RohS" (Restriction of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrica and Electronic Equipment 2002/95/EC)

which have been summarised for the Federal Republic of Germany in the

  • "ElektroG" (Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act),

which came into force on 24.03.2006

EC directive 2000/53/EC (End of Life vehicles directive) is important to the automotive industry because it regulates the procedure for scrapping end of life vehicles. In order to provide an overview of all pure materials that are installed in cars, they must be registered by the OEM's the their suppliers in web-database known as the "International Material Data System" .

More information on our materials and the pure materials that they contain with regard to environmental directives can be found in the "General Declaration" (PDF, 71 KB) .
