Siemens PLM Software to help industry with 'REACH' regulations

May '08
For product manufacturers, this means that some parts and materials they buy may become more costly or restricted based on how they are used in their products. The REACH regulation also restricts the use of so-called substances of very high concern (SVHC) in products.

The SVHC list is expected to ultimately include 1,500 to 3,000 substances. The REACH regulation requires companies to be prepared to disclose information about the SVHC in their products within 45 days of the request.

Integrating REACH regulation support into a company's complete lifecycle process is consistent with Teamcenter's holistic approach to compliance management. With Teamcenter, REACH regulation requirements can be gathered and tracked up front in the product development process.

As the product evolves, Teamcenter tracks substance information from the bill-of-materials (BOM) and generates reports of the quantities of each substance contained in the BOM. Organizations are then able to actively track all substance information as part of the product development process and maintain full traceability of the impact of any changes to the root source as they move forward.

By helping ensure REACH regulation compliance, Teamcenter eliminates the supply chain disruptions, delays and costs associated with compliance management. In addition to its new REACH regulation support, Teamcenter facilitates compliance with a wide range of environmental regulations governing businesses throughout the world including ELV, RoHS and WEEE directives.

REACH support is part of the Teamcenter environmental compliance solution which was developed through a partnership with Synapsis Technology Inc. The solution is powered by EMARS software, Synapsis' industry proven system for environmental compliance management. Synapsis provides supply chain and high- tech electronics industry-specific knowledge and software add-ons that complement the capabilities of Teamcenter.
