Quality, environment & energy

Environmental & energy management

We are responsible for sustaining and protecting our environment and using its resources in a sustainable manner. We also take into account environmental considerations in product development, purchasing, manufacture, supply and disposal. To us, it is a matter of course to use resources and raw materials in a responsible and sustainable manner and give due consideration to possible environmental impacts and risks. Our ISO 14001-compliant environmental management systems help to leave behind an environment for future generations which is both viable and worth living in. We emphasize our sustainable commitment to continuously save energy and systematically reduce CO2 emissions with our certified energy management systems in accordance with ISO 50001.

Quality management

Quality throughout all business divisions is FRÄNKISCHE’s key priority. Our goal is to exceed the expectations of our business partners - from the development and manufacture of products and solutions to sales and services. Our processes are geared towards continuous improvement to achieve "Zero Defects" and are characterised by preventive measures to avoid defects in all fields.

Certifications in compliance with ISO 9001 and IATF 16949 are therefore an inherent part of our integrated management system. These standards are a matter of course for us and an inherent part of our integrated management system.

The European chemicals legislation REACH entered into force on 1 June 2007. REACH is a uniform system of registration, evaluation and authorisation of chemicals aimed to enhance the protection of human health and the environment.

In other words, REACH is an EU regulation (1907/2006 EC) for tracking chemicals along the entire supply chain. FRÄNKISCHE business divisions are manufacturers and distributors of products for drainage systems and electrical systems, building engineering and industrial products, and therefore constitute a downstream user in the sense of REACH.

Since FRÄNKISCHE manufactures and sells only products but not materials, REACH applies to us to a marginal extent only.

As far as products are concerned, there is neither registration obligation nor the responsibility to prepare safety data sheets. As soon as one of our products or their packaging contain at least one SVHC substance from the currently applicable candidate list at more than 0.1 % of the mass, we shall comply with our obligation according to Section 33 (1) of the REACH Regulation and inform our customers.

The corresponding delivery note will contain the respective substance name accurately specified for the product affected printed as follows: “Product contains minor amounts of: substance name (1-n)”. For further information regarding the currently applicable REACH Regulation, please visit the website of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) or the German REACH Helpdesk.
