Restriction of Hazardous Substances
Getac Kunshan, which specializes in the assembly of rugged computing products, MPT Kunshan and MPT Suzhou, which specialize in the production of plastic injection mechanical parts have incorporated the IECQ QC 080000 Hazardous Substance Process Management (HSPM) system for electrical and electronic components and products, and complies with international directives for environmental protection, including the REACH, Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC ), and RoHS, to prevent the use of materials, parts, or products containing hazardous substance which would otherwise impact the ecosystem.

The quality assurance division inspects incoming materials from eligible suppliers. In 2019, all incoming materials passed the inspection, and no hazardous substances were found.  Products produced by automotive plants are die-casting metal parts composed of aluminum alloys and are not end products. 100% of the automotive parts produced and metal materials purchased in 2019 complied with the specifications of automobile customers and were also in line with national environmental protection regulations and the EU Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS).

Better Than International Environmental Protection And Safety Standards
In 2019, all of Getac‘s products complied with international environmental regulations. As required by product environmental regulations adopted in the country of origin of the product, electronic products were certified by international safety standards, in compliance with regulations on product safety, radio frequency, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and other safety issues adopted in the country of origin (e.g., UL and FCC in the U.S., CE and RED in the EU, and BSMI in Taiwan). Our products or packages are labeled with information on safety regulations, energy conservation, and environmental communication certification. There were no violations of product labeling regulations.

For the needs of special industries, such as the pharmaceutical, chemical, and petroleum industries, some models are on the initiative certified for high-standard safety standards. For example, the EX-80 rugged tablet has passed the strict explosive environmental standard test and received the European standard ATEX & IECEx Zone 0/20 and UL913 Class I/II Division 1 Certification. The K-120 rugged tablet PCs have passed the US and European standards for explosion-proof certification with K120-ANSI and K120-Ex respectively, and the safety of the employees in the dangerous workplace is protected by the design of essential safety technology.

Energy-conservation And Electricity-saving Design
With frequent occurrence of energy shortages in recent years, have occurred frequently, the cost of electricity has been rising. Whether electronic products can balance computing efficiency and energy conservation has become a key competitive capability. In 2019, all the rugged notebooks and tablets of Getac, except for two small tablets have reached the energy-saving top limit, and the rest are ENERGY STAR 7.1 certified. The actual laboratory test values are lower than the standard value required by the report. It is estimated that the rugged computer sold by Getac in 2018 can save at least 295 metric tons of carbon dioxide emission equivalent for the Earth, demonstrated Getac's efforts and achievements in energy-saving design.


 

Easier To Disassemble, Recyclable
Getac's electronic products comply with the WEEE requirements. On the packaging of each of our products, we state that the products are made from recycled materials and provide instructions on how to dismantle the products for every one of our product. We also commission local certified vendors in European regions to recycle our products. When recycling our products, they can be easily disassembled for re-use, which reduces resource waste. Furthermore, Getac products are designed following Energy related Products (EuP) directives and Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) standards.
