Global manufacturers such as Regal Beloit, Molex and MeadWestVaco have realized that an enterprise compliance platform should automate the process of data collection from a supply chain. Once data about finished goods (and the substances and raw materials within them) is collected, that data should be stored in a database for risk analysis, alternative assessments, compliance reporting and forecasting.

A compliance system that does all this for you can elevate materials data management to a strategic event for your company, rather than a tactical, get-it-done effort to cull supplier data as needed. Reactionary measures mean only sporadic efforts, which are costly, inefficient in terms of time and resource allocation, and inaccurate, especially if data is stored on spreadsheets or in a local, isolated database.

Business leaders know that creating a strategic program results in consistent data, enabling you to act immediately, even pre-emptively to global requirement changes. The right strategic program provides the infrastructure to perform more cost-effectively over time.

An enterprise software solution must help manage regulatory risk around a myriad of regulatory obstacles, from Europe's REACH, RoHS and WEEE to Asia's new K-REACH to United States state laws, pending TSCA restrictions and even SEC conflict minerals reporting requirements. To view a list of specific features to look for in compliance technology, click the Features tab at the top of this page.

Case Study

Stanley Black and Decker Thumb

REACH Compliance at Stanley Black & Decker

Stanley, an S&P 500 company, is a diversified worldwide supplier of tools and engineered solutions for professional, industrial, construction & do-it-yourself use, and more. Stanley needed an Enterprise Compliance Platform to manage tasks and risk associated with REACH, and similar, regulations.

When it comes to managing chemicals and hazardous substances, the European market faces the world’s most stringent regulations. The added pressures began with restrictions on a relatively narrow set of substances used in the electronics market. But with the European Union’s Registration, Evaluation, and Authorization of Chemicals (REACH) regulation, more products and vertical markets are affected.
