Few industries face the mounting challenges and scrutiny of expanding environmental compliance requirements, ecological mandates, consumer expectations and NGO watch groups as much as electronics and medical device manufacturers. Even before the Sony PlayStation cadmium crisis, the entire supply chain has been inundated by an ever-expanding myriad of legislation, ranging from the EU Directives on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), the restriction of hazardous substances (RoHS) and the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) to US legislation on conflict minerals. The depth and amount of information that suppliers must access, evaluate, compile, integrate and disclose is growing exponentially.
