Who is responsible for RoHS Compliance?
Most manufacturers rely on many different constituents and vendors for the supply to be marketed to the general public. This means limiting RoHS compliance in certain Electronic and Electrical Equipment to one source can be tricky. The original equipment manufacturers (OEM) should be responsible for keeping track of changing requirements of the elements used to implement the product. The responsibility of ensuring RoHS compliance for the manufacturer means going back through the supply chain to track as far back as the raw materials providers to obtain the materials declarations and certificates of compliance that are needed to comply with RoHS Directives. This is already a complicated, time-consuming project but to avoid the task of getting matters worse, there are often different restrictions per region as per their legal authority – so what may be acceptable in some countries or states are not acceptable in others. Keeping on top of this constantly evolving and improving the list of requirements can be a daunting task.
Because of this OEMs often rely on their supply chain partners to supply reliable products – specifically distribution – to keep abreast of and communicate regulations that affect their customers in a particular country. This can often backfire, however, as distributors are not required to assure compliance but the producer or manufacturer do.
