Understanding RoHS and REACH: Impacts on your Global Markets

An overview of two important environmental regulations, their impacts on the global electronics industry and upcoming legislation changes.

White Paper Abstract

Companies manufacturing equipment or consumer parts that use hazardous materials in the manufacturing process must comply with environmental regulations from multiple geographic markets. Two key sets of regulations - RoHS and REACH - require compliance if you are selling to markets in the European Union, China, Korea, and parts of the United States. The list of markets with materials controls related to electronics changes periodically.

Compliance with RoHS and REACH requires extensive knowledge of your supply chain, excellent record keeping, and in some cases testing. Whether you are an OEM or a supplier, understanding the restrictions on hazardous materials and compliance is critical to maintaining and expanding market share. This white paper provides a description of the basic RoHS and REACH requirements, enforcement and compliance, and upcoming changes in legislation.

"Managing our component database and keeping it updated was a daunting task. Our engineers require the latest information on the electronic components selected for our products and any lapse in the availability or freshness of the data is simply not acceptable. If it weren’t for SiliconExpert’s tools, we would still be living in the stone age.”

John Starr | Component Engineer | Intermec, Inc.

“In the movement to normalize processes, our teams recognized SiliconExpert as the tool that helped us achieve a lot more than expected during our data transition phase. With access to unparalleled amounts of unbiased and complete component data, we immediately realized how much potential time and money could be saved just with the BOM Manager alone. With everything considered,SiliconExpert presented the fastest and best solution.”

Erwan Rivet | Director of Engineering | Honeywell

"In the past, obsolescence data was limited to available/not available stats provided directly by part manufacturers. Parts were selected with little to no insight into their obsolescence lifecycle, leaving the possibility of selecting a soon-to-be obsolete part dangerously high. We’ve seen some nice savings in man hours, rather than going to a bunch of different sources, which is very time consuming, we can often just go to SiliconExpert and get the data we need right away.”
