Global Regulation of Substances in Electronics - is your business impacted?

For manufacturers of electronic and electrical equipment, the regulations on the safe disposal and treatment of e-waste are an ever-growing concern. The EU (European Union) adopted legislation in 2003 restricting the use of hazardous substances (RoHS) in electrical and electronic equipment to address the growing problem of the increasing volume of toxic e-waste. RoHS is closely aligned with other directives, such as the Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), and more obligations are coming.

Staying compliant with regulations such as RoHS and the WEEE Directive can be challenging. As manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers of EEE navigate the complexities of the global regulatory landscape, they must optimize compliance processes and structure in order to ensure conformance with existing and emerging regulations. Some companies may decide to choose an offering which consists of not only software, but also relevant data and services, to enable them to respond rapidly to changing regulations in a manner that shows proven thought leadership.
