GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL PROGRAMS AND REGULATIONS
From the United Kingdom’s Net Zero initiative and the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to electronics reuse and recycling regulations—global environmental laws and programs are growing at a rapid pace. If you develop products with electronic components, you’re likely required to meet environmental compliance regulations like RoHS, REACH, and WEEE. These regulations are expanding as more evidence surrounding the impact of electronics on the environment comes to light.
Companies need control, visibility, and traceability of their product’s footprint to effectively manage, report, and prove compliant product design. Compiling and maintaining all the compliance evidence for your product can be time-consuming and overwhelming, especially when working with spreadsheets, paper, and other disparate systems. Leveraging cloud-native product lifecycle management (PLM) software provides a framework to drive sustainable product development practices and meet ever-evolving regulations. A PLM solution links compliance information directly to the product record to provide team members with greater visibility and reduce compliance risks.
