Legislation Overview

EOL IT Services has a strong Environmental Policy ensuring compliance with all environmental legislations.

We work in partnership with our staff and clients to help raise awareness of environmental issues and strive to make continuing improvements to our operations always focusing on reducing our Carbon Footprint.

EOL IT Services takes these matters very seriously and we are continually improving our processes to ensure conformity to legislation. Our ISO 14001 Environmental accreditation further highlights our commitment to correct and efficient environmental practice.

Environmental Protection Act 1990

EOL IT Services’ processing structure is reassuring to all who work with us. They have the knowledge and confidence that we are fully compliant with legislation and continue to be a trusted and responsible organisation. Our supplier audits run hand in hand with our own Quality Management Standard ISO 9001 accreditation and Environmental Management Standard ISO 14001.

Landfill Regulations Act 2002

The Landfill Act 2002 (England & Wales) was intended to reduce the hazards and danger of a growing reliance on landfill disposal. EOL IT Services understand the issues and responsibility placed on us by the Landfill Regulations Act 2002, so we ensure that all our partners are processing our waste correctly. EOL operates a ZERO LANDFILL policy. We use our internal audits and ISO 9001 & 14001 Standards to maintain awareness and monitor any risks in the processes.

Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive

Now implemented, the Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive will become part of our everyday lives. WEEE fundamentally changes the way we view our electronic waste, both at home and at work. More stringent levels of reporting will be required. The WEEE Directive will force us to become responsible for what happens to our electronic equipment from purchase to disposal. EOL IT Services’ Lifecycle Management Programme and improved reporting will enable customers to achieve full compliance.


RoHS (Restriction/ Removal of Hazardous Substances) is a lesser piece of legislation. It is aimed at forcing manufacturers to stop using certain materials (e.g. Cadmium, Lead and Mercury) in the construction of their products. This has little or no impact on business or home use, as the legislation is not aimed at legacy equipment, just at the production of new.
