WEEE Compliance

Collection and Recycling Arrangements in Malta

Hologic does not have a sales office or approved distributor in Malta. Instead, Hologic products are sold directly to business end-users in Malta from sales offices in other Member States.

Selling products directly to an end-user in another Member State is known as 'distance selling'. The WEEE Regulations in Malta state that Hologic is not responsible for WEEE arising from distance sales of business products directly to the business end-user in Malta. Instead, it is the business end-user's responsibility to ensure that products which they buy through distance selling arrangements are managed in an environmentally responsible manner at end of life.

Hologic will be joining a compliance scheme to manage WEEE collection and recycling on behalf of its customers in Malta once a national scheme has been granted approval by the Malta Environment and Planning Authority.
