One of the most impactful compliance mandates came effect with the advent of RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) and WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment – which were two legislations brought into effect by the European Union. The new regulations placed a huge burden on Electrical and Electronic Equipment Manufacturers of having to conduct compliance audits on the parts that they procure or manufacture, to ensure they met the requirements of the directives with regards to the content of hazmat in the parts and for safe disposal of waste from the equipment sold in Europe. Subsequently, the EU also brought into effect the REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) regulation, to address the production and use of chemical substances and their impact on human health and environment.
Apart from these, the EU as well as other governments around the world have over the years implemented legislations that require companies to be more responsible about the products they produce, and the waste generated by those products. Some of the regulatioREAns are similar to the EU RoHS regulations – such as China RoHS or Japan RoHS; where as others are around Extended Producer Responsibility – such as the Packaging Waste Directive and Batteries Directive. There are also OSHA guidelines governing workplace safety, which also calls for companies to comply with several requirements.
