Separation and control of different types of components is critical to assure that a given product is truly RoHS-compliant. Currently, there is no universal agreement within the supply chain to designate unique part numbers for RoHS compliant components vs. non-RoHS compliant items. Many component manufacturers choose to identify compliant parts by lot code or date code instead of unique part numbers.
Since no industry-wide supply chain identification standard exists for RoHS compliance, to achieve this goal, Tru-Tronics Intl. has instituted procedures to distinguish between RoHS-compliant and non-compliant components. This ensures that each compliant OEM product contains only compliant components and is assembled with lead-free soldering.
Ensure RoHS Compliance:
It is nearly inevitable that some amount of non-compliant material will be stranded as excess and obsolete inventory because of this transition. Tru-Tronics Intl. works closely with OEMs to implement changeover strategy.
