Requirements regarding Plantronics Packaging

All printed material and packaging components including dyes, inks, pigments, adhesives, stabilizers, and additives must neither be manufactured using toxic or regulated heavy metals nor have them incidentally present. All printed collateral and packaging components, regardless of manufacturing location or country of origin, must be in compliance with the Reduction of Toxics Packaging Legislation in the United States, Packaging Directive 94/64/EC as amended by 2004/12/EC - Packaging and Packaging Waste. This policy applies to both soluble and insoluble forms of the four heavy metals, and no distinction will be made between them.
