www.BOMcheck.net is an industry collaboration led by Philips, Siemens, GE, Osram, Sony Mobile, Schneider Electric, Toshiba, Agfa, Texas Instruments and TE Connectivity to share one web database system to manage supply chain compliance. The web system is easy to use and enables suppliers to create and share standardised high quality materials declarations with their manufacturer customers. BOMcheck is highlighted in corporate videos produced by Siemens and Philips and is currently used by over 560 manufacturers to gather materials declarations from over 3,500 suppliers worldwide for more than 1.6 million parts. The system is supported by SGS which uses BOMcheck to provide EN 50581 RoHS compliance assessment services.
BOMcheck benefits manufacturers because they don’t need to spend time and money building their own declaration collection systems, training suppliers to use them, or keeping them up-to-date with constantly changing regulations. Manufacturers also achieve increased quality and response rate for supplier materials declarations. BOMcheck benefits suppliers because they only have one list of regulated substances to create material declarations against, and only need to learn to use one system to provide material declarations and conflict minerals information to their manufacturer customers. Suppliers also receive expert chemicals guidance on regulated substances.
