Criteria for the sustainability of our products

Our SUPRAX® borosilicate glass is free of harmful substances and 100% recyclable! And also in use, glass components from Auer Lighting make a significant contribution to environmental protection: Unlike plastic, glass does not age. This guarantees a long-lasting use of our components.

RoHS 2 Directive

The RoHS 2 Directive (2011/65/EU) restricts the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. The hazardous substances lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrimated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) listed in the directive are not used in Auer Lighting GmbH products.


Regulation No. 1907/2006 (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals - REACH) is an EU chemicals regulation that came into force on June 1, 2007.
Article 33 of REACH obligates Auer Lighting to provide customers with certain information about substances of very high concern in our products. This is the case if one of our products contains substances that are included in the SVHC candidate list maintained at the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and are present in the product in a concentration greater than 0.1% weight by weight (w/w). Auer Lighting periodically reviews the SVHC candidate list updated by ECHA and matches it with our products.
All our glass products consist entirely of the substance glass and this substance is not on the candidate list as defined by the REACH regulation. It is also not expected that glass will be included in the candidate list in the future. For coated glass products, no substance of the coating is on the candidate list. Therefore, there are no concerns regarding the effects of substances of very high concern when using our products and no obligation to provide information according to Art. 33 REACH.

California Prop 65

California Proposition 65 requires that special consumer warnings be posted in California on products containing chemicals known by the State of California to cause birth defects, cancer, or other reproductive harm if they exceed a certain threshold. Auer Lighting does not use any of the listed substances in its products.


Products of Auer Lighting GmbH are under strict control, as they are also used in the food sector. Our products are under regular monitoring in accordance with EU Regulation 1935/2004 and 2035/2006, as well as the national LFGB (Food, Commodities and Feed Code) and the American FDA (US Food and Drug Administration).

Noble metals from conflict zones

"Noble metals from conflict zones" refers to certain precious metals (such as tin, tantalum, tungsten, or gold) that are mined in countries where armed conflict and human rights abuses have been reported. Auer Lighting shares the concern of our customers not to use "noble metals from conflict zones" for the manufacturing of our products.

PFOS compliance statement

Auer Lighting does not use perfluorooctane sulfonates (PFOS) in its manufacturing process.


Auer Lighting's sense of responsibility is also apparent in its selection of environmentally friendly packaging and its search for opportunities to use recyclable materials that can be returned after use. Auer Lighting uses only FSC® certified packaging for its packaging.
