Electrical and Electronic Equipment

As more and more countries adopt regulations banning the use of hazardous substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE), compliance with an array of different requirements is becoming a more difficult and demanding task. The emergence of Right-To-Know legislation such as REACH SVHC declarations, California Prop 65 etc, is placing an additional strain on manufacturers to find out from their long and often convoluted supply chains exactly what substances are contained in their goods in order to demonstrate compliance.

Also paramount are the financial risks associated with the large costs of product recall, and the hefty fines for non compliance with EEE regulations. Manufacturers and suppliers throughout the supply chain are under pressure to prove their level of compliance in order to minimise these risks, requiring a considerable amount of resource spent trying to access and understand regulatory data which can be difficult to interpret and time consuming to locate.
