Substance Compliance Management
Substance compliance is a major challenge for manufacturers operating in today’s global marketplace. Thousands of materials used in product development are tightly regulated by local, state, country and regional directives. In addition, original equipment manufacturer (OEM) requirements, branch-specific industry standards and voluntary company targets need to be managed. To compound this challenge, the list of materials, exemption expiry dates and report requirements to central systems like IMDS and SCIP (Substances of concern In Products) and the levels of regulation are constantly changing to meet environmental concerns, improve resource management and avoid supporting geopolitical conflicts and human rights abuses.
