Effective May 1, 2019 the so-called “passive” devices will fall within the scope of the German ElektroG: Electrical and electronic equipment that conduct electricity have to be registered under the following categories as applicable for each device, or added to the monthly reporting for registrations that already exist:
Small appliances for IT and Telecommunication
Passive devices include antennas, adapters, jacks, connectors, sockets, wall plugs, ready-made cables, switches, push buttons and electric fuses.
We would be happy to place our expertise at your disposal, particularly in
evaluating which of your products are affected
managing the registration process for new products in scope
integrating passive devices in existing reporting routines
monitoring the development of legislation regarding passive devices in further EU countries
