Arlo is committed to provide customers with high quality products, and to conducting operations in a socially responsible, ethical, and sustainable manner to protect the environment and ensure that our products are compliant with all relevant regulations, customer specifications, and environmental legislation. This commitment continues to be a driving force at ARLO, and a principle that is deeply ingrained in our values.
Standards and Directives
In July 2006, the European Union’s (EU) Directive (2002/95/EC) on the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) went into effect. Arlo products are RoHS compliant with use of certain exemptions, and a certificate of compliance is available upon request.
In June 2007, the European Union’s (EU) REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of Chemicals) (EC 1907/2006) regulation went into effect on chemicals and their safe use. Arlo products are considered as “articles” under REACH, and we can provide recipients of our products with information on Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC) and hazardous substances listed in Annex XVII of REACH regulation upon request.
California Proposition 65
Proposition 65 entitles California consumers to warnings for products that contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm if those products expose consumers to such chemicals above certain levels. If a product requires a Proposition 65 warning, the warning may be located with or on the product packaging or on your receipt or order confirmation document.

On 21 January 2016, the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) published its final revised version of the Administrative Measures for the Restriction of the Use of Hazardous Substances in Electronic & Electrical Products (known as China RoHS 2). The new regulation came into force on 1 July 2016.
For Arlo products, date of manufacture communication requirement to customers is fulfilled by date code either on product label or through use of serial number on product label. Date of manufacture requirement on product packaging is fulfilled by printing date of manufacture (mm/yyyy) on China RoHS Flyer that is included with product manual.
Disposal of Waste Batteries, Packaging and Electrical & Electronic Equipment
The crossed-out wheelie bin symbol on the product or its batteries or its packaging means that this product and any batteries it contains must not be disposed of with your household waste. Instead, it is your responsibility to hand this over to an applicable collection point for the recycling of batteries and electrical and electronic equipment. This separate collection and recycling will help to conserve natural resources and prevent potential negative consequences for human health and the environment due to the possible presence of hazardous substances in batteries and electrical and electronic equipment, which could be caused by inappropriate disposal. For more information about where to drop off your batteries and electrical and electronic waste, please contact your local city/municipality office, your household waste disposal service, the shop where you purchased this product, or your nearest WEEE collection point. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information on battery and device’s environmental compliance.
Arlo is committed to ethical sourcing of minerals used in our products, and supports the objectives of Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Dodd-Frank Act”), which aims to prevent the use of conflict minerals that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries.
We make reasonable efforts in our supply chain to identify country or mine of origin of the subject minerals we use and expect that our suppliers make similar efforts in their supply chains. Arlo will continue to work closely with its supply chain to trace newly mined minerals back to their origin in order to ensure responsible sourcing.
