    To everyone at TLA Electrical Distributors, we can't say thank you enough

    Dear Friends,

    Thank you so much for your amazing donation of £100.00 to Macmillan Cancer Support. Because of your generosity we'll be able to reach more people with our life-changing support.

    No one should face cancer alone

    Macmillan believes that everyone affected by cancer should be able to get the help and support they need, so they don't go through cancer alone. That's exactly what your donation is helping us achieve.

    Your donation will help us to fund more nurses and therapists to help people through cancer treatment. It will help us to provide more information and support centres offering free and confidential advice. It will support us in our campaigns to improve cancer care and fight discrimination. Your donation will help us be there for patients, carers, families and communities every step of the way.

    If you're interested in doing something else for Macmillan, we'd love to have you on board. Please see macmillan.org.uk/get-involved for more details.

    Thanks again for being such an important part of the Macmillan team. Without your help, we wouldn't be able to keep providing our vital services. Together we are all Macmillan Cancer Support.

    Best wishes,

    Roberta Borg

    The Environment

    Founded in 1998, TLA initially opened for business in Nottingham with just three members of staff. We have now grown to employ over eighty staff, opening our second branch at Stafford in 2003, a third in Northampton in 2008, a fourth in Sheffield in 2015 and a fifth in Leeds in 2017.

    European Quality Assurance

    REACH compliance

    Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) is a European Union Regulation of 18 December 2006.
    REACH addresses the production and use of chemical substances, and their potential impacts on both human health and the environment. Its 849 pages took seven years to pass, and it has been described as the most complex legislation in the Union's history and the most important in 20 years. It is the strictest law to date regulating chemical substances and will affect industries throughout the world. REACH entered into force in June 2007, with a phased implementation over the next decade.

    TLA have carried out extensive research on this subject and as such we state that we comply with the demands of REACH. We can provide individual component certification as required.

    WEEE Directive

    The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) is the European Community directive 2002/96/EC on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) which, together with the RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC, became European Law in February 2003, setting collection, recycling and recovery targets for all types of electrical goods.

    The directive imposes the responsibility for the disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment on the manufacturers of such equipment. Those companies should establish an infrastructure for collecting WEEE, in such a way that "Users of electrical and electronic equipment from private households should have the possibility of returning WEEE at least free of charge". Also, the companies are compelled to use the collected waste in an ecologically-friendly manner, either by ecological disposal or by reuse/refurbishment of the collected WEEE.

    The WEEE Directive obliged the twenty-five EU member states to transpose its provisions into national law by 13 August 2004. Only Cyprus met this deadline. On 13 August 2005, one year after the deadline, all member states except for Malta and the UK had transposed at least framework regulations. As the national transposition of the WEEE Directive varies between the member states, a patchwork of requirements and compliance solutions is emerging across Europe.

    TLA are actively working with all of our suppliers to ensure that we conform or exceed to these regulations.
