Resilience of a Global Supply Chain Requires Compliance Measures To Mitigate Regulatory Risk

Risk is inherent in every company’s global supply chain.  Risks to seriously consider include, but are not limited to: export controls and sanctions, environmental, social and governance compliance requirements, labor laws, and health and safety laws.

 

What Compliance Considerations Exist Today?

The two most commonly adhered to regulation standards are EU REACH and EU RoHS.  However, attention to the health of citizens and the environment has led to the implementation of guidance and regulations in countries around the world.  Below is a general overview of today’s directives and regulations all companies should be aware and proactively aligned by way of due diligence.

EUROPE: 

  • RoHS
  • REACH
  • SCIP
  • Battery
  • ELV
  • Halogen Free
  • GADSL
  • Packaging and Packaging Waste
  • PFOS/PFOA
  • Phthalates
  • CLP

GLOBAL:

  • ODC
  • IEC 62474
  • IPC 1752

ASIA: 

  • China RoHS
  • Korea RoHS
  • Vietnam RoHS

NORTH AMERICA:

  • US Conflict Minerals
  • California Proposition 65

Due diligence is defined by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) as an ongoing, proactive and reactive process through which companies ensure that they respect human rights and do not contribute to conflicts in high-risk areas (OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas Second Edition, OECD Publishing, 2013, http://bit.ly/2t9iQcD). Staying aware and proactive on today’s compliance regulations is exercising due diligence —even if the legislation is not immediately applicable or impacting the products you are manufacturing today.  Regulations change, product exemptions change or even expire, parts become obsolete – all could have immediate impact on your business.
