Certification and environment

PS Automation GmbH works with an integrated management system according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 and DIN EN ISO 14001:2015. Since 2001, we have undergone annual certification of the quality management system according to DIN EN ISO 9001. In May 2018, we received certification for the first time according to DIN EN ISO 14001, theinternational environmental management standard. With the implementation of this management system, PS Automation has taken another important step towards sustainability, which encompasses the commitment in all areas equally and should enable an improvement of the company structure in the long term.

Let us convince you of our service.

Our environmental management system takes into account direct and significant environmental aspects already in the development phase. Thus, PS Automation guarantees you a sustainable production and the careful use of natural resources.

Conflict Minerals

Dodd-Frank Act Section 1502

Conflict minerals are raw materials from countries in which armed conflicts are being fought. For the purposes of the Dodd-Frank Act, this includes the raw materials tin, tantalum, tungsten, columbite, and gold and their derivatives that originate from the Democratic Republic of Congo and neighboring countries.

We are indirectly affected as a supplier and take our responsibility very seriously, so we have questioned our suppliers regarding the use of the above substances and indicated that we do not accept minerals from conflict zones.

The PS Automation GmbH (PSA) has recognized early on that it is goal-oriented to manufacture high-quality products in terms of functionality and quality without disregarding relevant environmental aspects. Therefore we live according to the following company policy:

Regulation (EU) 2017/821

This regulation establishes a Union supply chain due diligence system with the aim of limiting the ability of armed groups and security forces to trade in tin, tantalum and tungsten, their ores and gold. This regulation aims to provide transparency and security regarding the supply practices of Union importers as well as smelters and refiners sourcing raw materials from conflict and high-risk areas.

Information on the return and disposal of electrical appliances from commercial end users

In Germany, the disposal of electrical appliances by commercial end users is subject to the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG).

Manufacturers who sell electrical appliances are obliged to take back old appliances and commercial end users can utilise these return options.

Environmental protection and the proper disposal of electrical appliances are important to us, which is why we offer to take back and recycle our actuators. The costs for the return transport and disposal of the devices are to be borne by the customer.

If you wish to return a drive manufactured by PS Automation GmbH for proper disposal, you have the option of commissioning an appropriate parcel service to have the actuators delivered to our headquarters in Bad Duerkheim (Germany):

PS Automation GmbH
Philipp-Kraemer-Ring 13
67098 Bad Duerkheim (Germany)

Please notify us of the return transport and disposal at the following e-mail address so that we can coordinate the process and all costs incurred with you:


Of course, you can also dispose of the actuators at local collection points or recycling centres.


Data erasure before disposal

Please ensure that all personal or business data on the devices has been deleted before disposal in accordance with § 19a ElektroG.

The symbol of the crossed-out dustbin

The crossed-out wheelie bin symbol on our actuators means that the electrical appliance must not be disposed of with normal household waste and must be collected separately.

We would like to expressly point out that under no circumstances may our drives be disposed of by the customer or end user in unsorted municipal waste. The improper disposal of old electrical appliances can have a significant impact on the environment and violates applicable environmental protection regulations.

Furthermore, before disposing of or returning used batteries and accumulators that are not enclosed in the electrical appliance, as well as lamps that can be removed from the electrical appliance without destroying them, customers or other end users must separate the drives in a non-destructive manner. This not only ensures compliance with legal regulations, but also protects the environment, as it enables targeted and environmentally friendly recycling.
