Continual Improvement & Corrective and Preventive Process
The whole company builds on the Total Quality Management (TQM) train of thought and adopts the IATF16949 approach.
We have the customer-oriented process (COP), the support-oriented process (SOP), and the management-oriented process (MOP).
Customer Oriented Process-COP: Both the input and output are processes related to customers. The process starts with customer requirements to fulfill customer needs. It is the focus of the IATF requirements.
Supporting Process-SP: Each main process is accompanied by one or multiple supportive processes. Documentation/record control, human resources, educational training, etc.
Management Process-MP: It is the process where the organizational or quality system is managed, such as internal audits, management review, correction and prevention, continuous improvement, among others.
Green Product Compliance Declaration
REACH is a European Community Safety Regulation covering the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals. As of June 1, 2007, substances of high concern that are imported into the EU may require authorization. Manufacturers and importers must register with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) for goods imported into the EU with an annual import volume of more than 1 ton (including 1 ton). If substances imported into the EU are classified as Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC), they will require authorization. If there is any more than 0.1% of SVHC and the annual import of the substance exceeds 1 ton, the EU manufacturer or importer must notify the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).
RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances, and impacts the entire electronics industry and many electrical products as well. The original RoHS, also known as Directive 2002/95/EC, originated in the European Union in 2002 and restricts the use of six hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products. All applicable products in the EU market since July 1, 2006 must pass RoHS compliance.
Directive 2011/65/EU was published in 2011 by the EU, which is known as RoHS-Recast or RoHS 2. RoHS 2 includes a CE-marking directive, with RoHS compliance now being required for CE marking of products. RoHS 2 also added Categories 8 and 9, and has additional compliance recordkeeping requirements.Directive 2015/863 is known as RoHS 3. RoHS 3 adds four additional restricted substances (phthalates) to the list of six. RoHS 3 Deadline is 22 July 2019.
In August 2012, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued its final rules regarding Conflict Minerals (known as ‘3TG’ – Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten and Gold) as defined in and required by section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the Act). As a result, many companies are now focusing on whether and to what extent their products contain Conflict Minerals and whether such Conflict Minerals come from the Democratic Republic of Congo and the adjoining countries named in the Act.
Californa Proposition 65
Proposition 65 is administered by Cal/EPA's California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA). Proposition 65 regulates substances officially listed by California as causing cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm, in two ways. The first statutory requirement of Proposition 65 prohibits businesses from knowingly discharging listed substances into drinking water sources, or onto land where the substances can pass into drinking water sources. The second prohibits businesses from knowingly exposing individuals to listed substances without providing a clear and reasonable warning. The requirements apply to amounts above what would present a 1-in-100,000 risk of cancer assuming lifetime exposure (for carcinogens), or above one-one-thousandth (1/1000) of the no observable effect level (for reproductive toxins).
