Chemicals in electrical and electronic equipment

How do you manage the risks of chemicals in your electrical and electronic products?

Join the world’s leading electrical and electronics manufacturers

The world’s biggest electrical and electronics manufacturers rely on Enhesa Product Intelligence to proactively manage their compliance and product safety efforts.

It’s never been more important for manufacturers to understand what their products are made of, and how this influences not only their compliance but also their circularity and sustainability. But for product safety professionals managing compliance for the world’s biggest electronics and electrical product manufacturers, this is not an easy task.

We know that compliance teams within the electronics industry face three big challenges:

Regulatory content and sustainability intelligence

Understanding the hazardous substances within their products, and communicating this throughout the supply chain.

Regulatory content and sustainability intelligence

Keeping up with regulations controlling the use of (hazardous) substances in electronic and electrical products.

Regulatory content and sustainability intelligence

Following trends towards circularity (and sustainable development) and especially keeping up with rules on extended producer responsibility requirements on batteries and waste.

Reach your compliance goals with Enhesa Product
