  7. 7. Trends in Product “Eco”‐Legislation • Green Chemistry legislation  – REACH; CA Green Chemistry Initiative – Latest “hot item” within Eco‐compliance legislation.  • Eco‐compliance legislation  – continues to expand and change – continues to place demands on manufacturers and  suppliers. – substance‐level legislation will streamline compliance  • E.g. supply chain complying with REACH requests © Botsford  EcoTech Partners LLC 2010

  11. 11. Lessons Learned & Best Practices • Lesson 1: Process approach – With the constant possibility of changes to any product eco-compliance legislation, a process needs to be implemented; not simply a project for each type of legislation. • Best Practices: – Ability to track products by compliance to multiple requirements and legislative requirements • EU vs China, RoHS vs. REACH, USA by state – Implementation of the next three lessons learned and best practices. © Botsford  EcoTech Partners LLC 2010
  12. 12. Lessons Learned & Best Practices • Lesson 2: Be ready for an audit – No longer just government audits – more customers or suppliers are performing audits • Best Practices: – 24 hour turn around time to deliver information – Remote access to data & information • Technical compliance files should include: component data, corporate policies and procedures, classification/justification documents, roadmap(s) of activities – Information by substance, component, product • Information should be searchable by component, part number, supplier status, substance, exemption/variation © Botsford  EcoTech Partners LLC 2010

  14. 14. Lessons Learned & Best Practices • Lesson 3: Gather full materials declarations – More and more countries are creating requirements for materials reporting requirements or materials restrictions. – Countries with existing requirements are look at adding additional substances. • Best Practices: – Full materials declarations by weight – Listed in database by CAS number – Ability to search database for specific substance © Botsford  EcoTech Partners LLC 2010
  15. 15. Lessons Learned & Best Practices • Lesson 4: Stay current – With changes happening for existing legislation and new legislation being created, one needs a good service for keeping informed. • Best Practices: – Industry involvement – Targeted reports – not general knowledge databases or “tech rags” • Several services provide news; few provide only the info you need or assist with interpretation and action on changes • Be wary of tech rags and make sure the information you’re using comes from a reputable source. © Botsford  EcoTech Partners LLC 2010
  16. 16. It’s not easy going green… • It’s a Conscious Corporate Decision – Changing critical thinking • Go beyond substance restrictions and waste management – Compliance not chaos • Risk elimination • Business based solution – Crisp presentation of corporate environmental  stewardship … but the rewards are tremendous. © Botsford  EcoTech Partners LLC 2010
