From time to time manufactures deem it necessary to issue a product recall or safety notice which may mean a direct swap, refund or a modification being made to an appliance.

Usually the manufacture will be alerted to component failure through their engineering network and initiate the product recall or issue a safety notice. They could also be forced to issue the product recall or perform a modification by Trading Standards as in the case of Hotpoint / Indesit Tumble dryer Modification.

Here we will endeavour to list white goods Product Recalls and Safety Notices as and when we come across them and list them here.

V-ZUG confirm WEEE compliance

Premium kitchen domestic appliance manufacturer, V-ZUG, will be registered as a WEEE Producer and awarded its WEEE compliance certificate with effect from June 1st, 2017.

The certificate is awarded to manufacturers of large appliances who agree to comply with strict WEEE environmental and waste standards.

The management of WEEE is applied via the waste hierarchy, with particular emphasis upon reduction of waste arising, re-use of equipment and recycling (recovery) of materials: reduce, re-use and recycle.

In January 2012, proposals were debated by the European Parliament to recast the WEEE Directive. The proposals included increasing recycling rates. Having been adopted by member states, the re-drafted directive now requires higher recovery rates of 20kg per capita per annum as opposed to previous figures of 4kg per capita.

Speaking on behalf of V-ZUG, UK & Ireland Sales Director Rhys Evans comments “The well-being of the environment and waste management/disposal is extremely important to V-ZUG, hence the application and granting of the WEEE certificate. Domestic appliance manufacturers have a responsibility to do all they can for future generations and being part of the WEEE compliance scheme demonstrates our commitment to such ideology.”

For further information about V-ZUG’s new and existing appliance solutions and its stockists, please call 0843 289 5759 or visit www.vzug.com
