Using the seeba Website
The seeba website has been designed for easy navigation. Features include a search engine for the site so you can quickly and easily find the information you need. The top menu has sub links so when the mouse passes over each title a list of links to that section is revealed. This allows the user to rapidly go to any part of the site. If you still need help on finding relevant areas then use the site map at the bottom of the page. For those of you where English is not your native tongue and find the language difficult, each page can be translated into one of 12 different languages by selecting 'Translate' from the top right hand side of each page. seeba however can take no responsibilty for the quality of translation, since the service is not managed by seeba.
In order to find out the latest environmental product developments select the 'Environmental News' section which will bring to you the most important developments worldwide. You can see the topics covered in the first of the summary boxes below. The other boxes give short summaries of what can be found within this site or the parent CfSD site.
The 'Country Profiles' section not only covers the extensive 'Country Directive' but also a 'talk box' for each country which it is hoped you will all contribute to. It will for the first time give most countries in the world an area where environmental issues for those countries can be debated openly. seeba is also seeking articles (in English) on important country issues which can be published on the relevant country page(s).
The EU WEEE/RoHS implementation pages have with links to most of the member states legislation text, registration bodies and compliance organisations. In addition they have been integrated into the countries directive under the title of 'Country Profiles' The EuP directive will soon be added to the EU section, and as national transposition takes place it will be added to the individual countries. The EuP directive will fundamentally effect the way companies design their products. Because of this the seeba design checklist under the Eco-design Tools section has been updated to reflect the requirements of this directive. and a new section called 'EuP Page' has been created to cover the latest development.s.
