Code of Conduct
SIBA sees itself as an innovative, technology driven family-owned company, committed not only to the region but also to its social responsibility. On the one hand for the people it is dealing with, be it employees, suppliers or clients. No matter whether living in the region, in Germany or all around the world. On the other hand for the environment, whose resources SIBA uses. Either here or elsewhere. In order to meet these self-set standards, SIBA has developed a set of rules which are laid down in the company’s Code of Conduct. You can read them here.
Entrepreneurial initiative for the recycling of low-voltage fuses
SIBA is founding member of the german initiative for the recycling of fuses. It's official name is "Verein des umweltgerechten Recycling von abgeschalteten NH-/HH-Sicherungseinsätzen e.V."
The initiative is supported by the main players on the fuse market. It organizes collection and transport of obsolete low- and high voltage fuses. Overall, there are about 700 collection points. Thus results in 200 tons of old fuses every year. Partner company Aurubis AG recycles the fuses and is winning back valuable copper and silver. The initiative uses the earnings from these processes to fund research and development projects in the field of fuse technology.
The annual report of the initiative provides more information (only available in german).

REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals, it is the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC 1907/2006). As the EC write in its website, "the aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. At the same time, REACH aims to enhance innovation and competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. The benefits of the REACH system will come gradually, as more and more substances are phased into REACH". Article 33 for instance regulates the information process, which has to be granted if products contain more than 0.1 % weight by weight.
SIBA articles and their packaging contain substances included on the REACH-candidate list in a concentration above 0.1 % weight by weight. Details please see our official statement .
RoHS is the abbreviation of "Restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment". This is the title of the EU directive 2011/65/EU. According to these guidelines of the European Parliament it is not allowed to put on the market electronic elements with dangerous ingredients.
For more information see info page here.
SIBA has switched the main part of its products to serve these requirements.
You will recognize products which are RoHS compliant by the RoHS-sign printed on each packaging unit.
