Integrated Management System IMS
Three years later, Ecofimatica already covered the entire country, even before the entry into force of Royal Decree 208/2005. Very soon, we far exceeded the targets set by the WEEE regulation.
As an Integrated Management System (IMS), Ecofimatica offers on-demand waste collection for centers with more than 300 kgs of waste and a network of Temporary Waste Storage Facilities for delivery of smaller amounts of waste.
Ecofimatica has signed agreements with logistic agents and specialized authorized treatment plants to ensure total traceability and adequate treatment of 100% of the waste collected.
Ecofimatica is a scheme specifically adapted to the peculiarities of a sector in which large copying equipment coexists with smaller printers commonly used at households. It draws together about 30 manufacturers and importers operating in Spain as well as the distribution channel.
Virtually from its origins, Ecofimatica drew together 90% of reprographic and office manufacturers operating in Spain. This fact remains the main guarantee of Ecofimatica: to count on the confidence of most manufacturers and importers of office devices, a fact that ensures the maximum industry representation.
The role of the distributor is critical for the proper management of electronic waste from the IT industry.
Being a member of Ecofimatica allow producers and/or distributors to easily comply with WEEE regulation in a simple, efficient and economical way.
Ecofimatica is annually audited by an external party and submits annual reports of activity to regional and national governments.
Furthermore, Ecofimatica guarantees its member companies to adequately safeguard their interests in Spain and Europe. Since December 2005, Ecofimatica is member of the WEEE Forum, the panEuropean association that brings together the main WEEE compliance schemes in Europe.
Ecofimática’s waste management platform enables producers, importers and distributors of office equipment in Spain to correctly dispose of their electronic waste.
Created in 2013, the Ecofimática Foundation¹s ECO awards are a first initiative of this kind in the office equipment distribution sector in
Spain. The awards recognise the contribution made by office equipment (photocopiers, fax machines and printers) distributors to the end-of-life collection and correct recycling of such equipment. We hope the awards will encourage more distributors to take part in separated waste collection systems and boost overall collection rates.
All operations for waste collection and management of office equipment FOR PROFESSIONALS are coordinated through ECOFIMATICA’s web-based platform.
