RoHS 10-Step Quality Assurance Policy
Possibly the most difficult aspect of RoHS is being able to show that your products comply. Find out how we can help you with this critical step.
Newark's RoHS Quality Assurance Policy: Mitigating the risks of RoHS
At Newark, we are taking steps to identify our products that are RoHS compliant. As a distributor, we start by collecting RoHS data from our suppliers to pass on to our customers. In addition, we have worked with our sister distributor in the UK, Farnell, to develop a rigorous 10-step due diligence process intended to further help mitigate the compliance risk for both our customers and ourselves. These are the steps we take:
Certificate of Compliance
You can download an element14 certificate of compliance for any part that we have designated as RoHS compliant. Backing up each certificate is a complete audit trail including documents from the manufacturer that have been evaluated.
See more details about downloading certificates.
Managing your RoHS compliant inventory
We provide an item-level product label on the innermost packaging for each part we ship, indicating its RoHS status, manufacturer part number, Newark stock number, and your customer number (if included).
We designed our perforated packing list to serve receiving, stockroom and accounting functions. Peel-off bin labels are incorporated on the list for each item, with critical information: manufacturer part number, Newark element14 stock number and bar code, customer part number (if included), RoHS status and part description.
