The 2000/53/EC Directive, concerns the disposal
of waste deriving from vehicle scrappings (End of Life Vehicle).
The aim of this directive is to protect the
environment, eliminating or limiting, for
the manufacturing of vehicles, the use of hazardous
substances (Lead, Cadmium, Mercury, Hexavalent
Chromium-CrVI) and promoting the collection, the
re-use and the disposal of materials deriving
from end-of-life vehicle scrappings.

EN ISO 14001:2004 certification, has banned
the use of these elements and of their compounds
long before the coming into force of the directive,
establishing strict controls upon entrance of
raw materials. Lati S.p.A. is at its customers'
disposal, through the Customer Assistance service, for any further information.
