Providing Compliance Information for Older Inventory

Question Posed:

If a customer requests compliance information for a product that was ordered several years ago, is the supplier obligated to provide current declarations, or will declarations that were current at the time the parts were ordered suffice?

Answer Provided:

Depending on the origin of the request, there may be no obligation to update compliance information once a product has been placed on the market. However, there is an obligation to maintain compliance records. You should be able to provide a disclosure for the compliance status of a component or part as of the date it was sold, or more currently, if possible.
