BOMcheck Celebrates More Than 1 Million RoHS And REACH Material Declarations By Over 3,100 Suppliers

BATH, United Kingdom, June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BOMcheck is an industry collaboration led by Philips, Siemens, GE, Osram, Sony Mobile, Schneider Electric, Toshiba, Agfa, Texas Instruments and TE Connectivity to share one web database to manage supply chain compliance with the EU REACH Regulation, RoHS Directive and other regulated substances in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific. Most of these companies also play a leading role in the IEC 62474 materials declaration standard which provides standardized requirements for reporting substances and materials in the electrotechnical industry.

BOMcheck is highlighted in corporate videos produced by Siemens and Philips and is currently used by over 480 customers to gather materials declarations from over 3,100 suppliers worldwide.  To date, these suppliers have published RoHS and REACH materials declarations for more than 1 million parts in BOMcheck.  Each declaration has the same format and is signed electronically by an Authorised Individual at the supplier to meet the quality and trustworthiness requirements in clause 4.3.4 of the EN 50581 standard for RoHS2 technical documentation.  Product Stewardship Manager at Umicore AG & Co. KG said " We receive a lot of individual questionnaires about REACH SVHC, RoHS, etc.  BOMcheck provides a user friendly tool to create standardized declarations which our customers are more and more happy to accept".  BOMcheck also has a tried and tested integration process with leading software solution providers, including ENOVIA MCC and PTC WPA, which enables automated data download in IPC 1752A XML format and accurate loading of supplier declarations without the need for any editing of supplier company names or IDs - another essential due diligence requirement for RoHS2.  

Suppliers use the detailed training videos published on to quickly learn the data entry tools and rely on the expert chemicals guidance to identify which materials and parts are at risk of containing regulated substances, and any exemptions that apply. This risk management approach saves time and reduces testing costs for suppliers.  If the BOMcheck guidance indicate that a substance is not found in the supplier's parts (for example, because the substance is used as a plasticizer in certain types of materials and the parts do not contain these materials) then the supplier can follow the guidance and claim compliance for their parts for this substance.  Senior Product Development Engineer at Belden Wire & Cable B.V said "BOMcheck helps me to respond to the rapidly increasing list of REACH Candidate List substances and to keep my declarations up-to-date".  

Most suppliers choose to make their Regulatory Compliance Declarations available to all customers in BOMcheck and so these data are available immediately to new customers who decide to join BOMcheck.  If a supplier has chosen to make their Full Materials Declarations confidential to certain customers, then the supplier can add new customers to these confidentiality settings in one step so that that all these existing Full Materials Declarations can also be made available immediately. Environmental Compliance Engineer at Wurth Elektronik said "We appreciate the standardized Full Material Declaration and Regulatory Compliance Declaration, the option to add evidence documents (for example,  MSDS's, lab analysis reports, etc.) to support the material declaration, and the automatic updates to our Regulatory Compliance Declarations."

BOMcheck provides communication tools for customers to request certain supplier parts or customer parts, and 'wizard' tools to guide suppliers to make declarations for REACH, RoHS and other regulated substances around the world, or to map the customer part number to their supplier part number in BOMcheck. Customers can use BOMcheck to send parts lists and request messages to their suppliers for action in BOMcheck. Suppliers receive reminder emails from BOMcheck if the required dates in the customer requests are exceeded. Suppliers can review the customer requests and send response messages in BOMcheck to accept or reject the parts lists. If a supplier accepts a request, the 'wizard' tools guide the supplier to download the parts list and make declarations for the part numbers and/or to map the customer part numbers to the supplier's part numbers. Material Data Manager at WAGO Kontakttechnik GmbH & Co. KG said "BOMcheck is a very important tool for WAGO that makes it possible to answer the ever-increasing number of customer requests quickly and efficiently."
