Germane Systems Receives EPA Identification for Section 3010 Compliance
January 26, 2018
Germane Systems is pleased to announce that is has received an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Identification Number that will allow it to comply with Section 3010 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCPA). The RCPA itself goes back to the 1980s and the early days of the EPA, but recent updates to the law focus on the significant environmental hazards in electronics manufacturing. A wide range of hazardous and challenging products are regularly involved in electronics, from acids that etch PC boards, to lead in solder connections, to rare metals like mercury found in certain types of switches – the list is quite extensive, each requiring a specific type of safe handling and proper disposal.
Germane Systems is a provider of ruggedized technology product solutions to both public and private sectors and is committed to long term, environmentally sound practices. “We feel strongly it is our social responsibility is to ensure personnel, customers, and the environment are protected by conscious efforts to minimize and/or eliminate the impact of hazardous materials,” said Kerry O’Brien, CEO and President. “As a world class company, compliance to RCPA Section 3010 is another example of our commitment to excellence.”
