The European REACh and RoHS regulations aim to improve health and environmental protection by taking better account of the risks associated with chemical substances while promoting the competitiveness of manufacturers in the European Economic Area.
In order to comply with these regulations, manufacturers must fulfil a certain number of obligations (REACh Article 33, CE marking, RoHS technical file) before their products are placed on the market.
Controlling the chemical substances present in the materials or the articles in your products nomenclatures is therefore crucial in order to establish environmental compliance. This involves an exchange of information in the supply chain between importers, suppliers and downstream users.
The collection and management of this data and the monitoring of local regulations in a global market often goes beyond higher value-added tasks such as risk identification, market or customs obligations monitoring, obsolescence planning, substitution identification and innovation.
