There is some great news in these slides that has not been mentioned.  Electrical & Electronic Components are the most risky parts. That group is 48% not RoHS today.  Overall 63% of parts are RoHS2 compliant.  New part introduced since 2012 are over 90% RoHS2 compliant.  This is great news.

The bad news.  Risks lay mostly with products introduced before 2009.  Since OEM products tend to change little, there are still many that specify non-RoHS parts, which will need to be designed out.  Since there are still so many non-RoHs parts in the supply stream, engineers and buyers need to be very careful which ones they use.

There are many companies that are now 100% converted to RoHS complance parts only.  You have lower buyer risk from these since there are no mixed production facilities.

Hailey,

That's a fair statement to make.

You simply should'nt go for Newly Fangled concepts because some Highly Paid Consultant tells you it will achieve great results.

Remember its you and your Company's Results on the Line here;Don't fall prey to foolish thoughtprocesses/Snake Oil.

Automation is good as far it goes, but i believe that these sorts of initiatives really need to be tied to strategic objectives within the organization. WHen you have these instances that organizatoins are doing stuff because they have to, you never get the best results.

Hailey,

You have to figure out what works best(& what does'nt) here.

Wherever possible just automate & Simplify the Whole Compliance Procedure.

If you look at most Compliance Procedures they have a lot of Overlapping Strands;makes so much sense to merge everything together by Product-Type.

@Tech4People, I think that many organizations find that the burden of compliance with RoHS2, Dodd Frank, etc. overwhelming. However, these are imporant issues that need to be monitoried and solved and we haven't found a better way.

 

Readers: what would you recommend as a way the industry could tackle these issues in a more streamlined way?

Hailey,

Don't you feel that a Good number of Certification today just adds more and more to the paper-work involved ?

Such a Huge amount of Paper-work with not much Concrete Gain.

What a waste!

@Eldredge, from history we know that every new technology and each new certification takes time to integrate into the system. I'm willing to bet it's usually ten to fifteen years.

@Hailey - It is true that hardware for harsh environments poses a greater challenge - mostly because of the potential consequences of system failure. There is no need to justify high reliability aicraft system requirements. It takes time for new technology to prove itself reliable ...and the more stringent the requirement, the longer it takes.

@Rich lead free is a big part of the conversation these days. We aren't there yet but i think we are moving in that direction. I believe the challenge still lies in harsh enviorments uses.

The line between the Do-It-Yourselfer (DIY) and the true electronics designer is being blurred. Innovation is coming from all over. We wanted to know if the distribution community is ready.
Supply chain sustainability leads to clear benefits to the organization, not only from an environmental perspective, but also in terms of reduced costs and increased customer benefits. However, to reap these benefits, organizations need to make a concerted effort to disseminate the vision throughout the organization.
To really tap in to the value of sustainability efforts across the supply chain, organizations must adopt clear strategies that leverage ethical, economic, social, and environmental concerns.
