Supplier Survey Completion under REACH and RoHS

Question: 

Under the REACH Regulation and the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive, is there an industry standard for the number of part-level responses required before a declaration of conformity can be issued?

Answer: 

No such threshold exists. For both the REACH Regulation and RoHS Directive, regulatory authorities want to see demonstrable evidence of a robust, ongoing compliance program with incremental improvement in the collection of third-party supplier data. Demonstrating strong due-diligence is key.

It is also important to understand and communicate that parts are compliant based on your due diligence and alert customers if this information changes.
