REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals) is an EU regulation dedicated to providing authorization, transparency, and restriction around chemicals used in manufacturing and transportations of electronic components. The objective of the regulation is to improve human health and the environment by identifying potentially harmful substances. REACH stands for:

  • Registration – Manufacturers are required to submit hazardous properties of all substances during the manufacturing and transportation process of the electronic components to the European Chemical Agency.
  • Evaluation – The European Chemical Agency provides a dossier evaluation and substance evaluation of the details submitted. Additional information may be required.
  • Authorization – The European Chemical Agency allows for certain substances of concern that can be authorized for use under restricted circumstances.
  • Restriction of Chemicals – Any chemical substances deemed unsafe may be restricted by the European Chemical Agency.

Having components that are REACH compliant is mandatory if producing or shipping into any of the European Union countries. Therefore, checking the compliance of the parts you are using is critical in ensuring that your products will be able to enter these countries and not be held at the border. Checking documentation of each component is time-consuming and disrupts your ability to compare parts that are REACH compliant quickly. Z2Data provides the latest compliance status and full source documentation of REACH compliance. Easily download and view the source directly from the compliance feature page. Under certain circumstances, REACH may authorize the substances of concern to be used. In such instances, a link to the manufacturer's documentation is provided.

California Proposition 65

View Prop 65 compliance status

CA Prop 65 is a California State regulation that requires businesses to declare warnings on products that contain chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. Electronic components that contain harmful chemicals on a list provided by the California Office of Enviromental Health Hazard must show a warning. If products that contain these chemicals are not labeled the company can be sued and face serious consequences.  

If any of your products are to be sold in California, you need to label them and let all users know if the chemicals from your components will be a risk to their health. With new substances being added yearly to the Proposition 65 list, it is critical to stay on top of the compliance status of these parts from manufacturers. Z2Data's Part Risk Manager enables you to instantly check compliance status and download full source documentation of CA Prop 65 compliance.

Conflict Minerals

Ensure the minerals in your components will not slow down your production

Conflict minerals are defined as minerals that are extracted in Congo. Although the term originated in the United States, globally, the Responsible Minerals Initiative is considered the industry standard to report on conflict minerals compliance for all supply chains. In both the European Union and the United States, there are separate laws governing the disclosure of conflict minerals in electronic components. Regional certifications of conflict minerals will need to be provided to ensure compliance. Z2Data’s Part Risk Manager provides easy-to-view compliant statuses and notifications on conflict minerals to ensure that you are building products that do not include banned substances.

With extensive regulations being added regarding the manufacturing and distribution of electronic and mechanical parts, having the latest information on minerals that your components are made of, can help you minimize the impact on your supply chain and ensure that you will not be posed with national or global regulations that may halt sales.

UK Modern Slavery Act

Stay informed about company-wide regulation compliance

In 2015, the Parliament of the United Kingdom passed the UK Modern Slavery Act. The law includes provisions to prohibit the trafficking of individuals for the purpose of modern slavery. The law requires that businesses disclose statements confirming steps to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place inside the business.

Being aware of the terms which the manufacturer of your components is operating under is necessary in order to avoid any conflicts that may arise due to a lack of compliance on their behalf, which will in turn, affect the production of your products. With regulations constantly changing, keeping up with supplier announcements regarding their compliance with these regulations is tedious and time-consuming, and can drastically impact your production/brand image. But with Z2Data's descriptive compliance reports and documentation sourcing, you can easily check any disclosures and documentation made available by suppliers regarding their compliance with the most current laws and regulations like the UK Modern Slavery Act, and stay updated if their actions can impact your products.
