Q: Is there a way to determine whether a component has zero risk of containing a regulated substance, and doesn’t require substance disclosure documentation as a result?
A: Every part and/or material in scope of RoHS, or any similar regulation, requires substance disclosure documentation. A material specification can be used in supporting documentation in conjunction with the contractual requirement that demonstrates how the material is used. A material specification must explicitly determine the presence and/or absence of substances covered by the regulatory need.
