Compenent substitute also demands understanding of schematic and system as such. Do we need to provide them with schematic, system details and do they have that capability? Are they good in RF, digital, power electroincs or all field?

REACH headaches require a different approach
dwong   4/13/2012 12:30:22 PM

With REACH changing so frequently, staying up to date becomes a big challenge. The Green Data Exchange system is the best approach I've seen. It lets suppliers declare online for free, and everyone gets access to always current compliance data.

I attended DCA's Webinar on REACH and I have to say that this particular edict is even more confusing than RoHS. I completely agree that something like this is best left to the experts. I can't imagine companies trying to develop systems and processes for this in-house.
