The Complex Automotive Supply Chain
In the automotive industry, there are numerous regulations — from REACH to RoHS to conflict minerals — that impact vehicles from the design stage through to end of life. To comply, manufacturers need to know their industry-specific regulations and requirements, as well as country-specific export rules and tariffs.
If manufacturers can’t meet their requirements, they face a range of risks, including loss of market access, loss of contracts, and fines.
The Risks of Automotive Supply Chain Non-Compliance
Automotive supply chain sustainability management is complex, especially as original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) expand electric vehicle production and work around parts shortages. Because automotive manufacturers require scrutinized materials like conflict minerals, cobalt, and mica, they’ll need deep due diligence to protect their brands.
Meeting OEM Expectations
With some of the most complex supply chains in the world, automotive companies must commit significant resources to tracking parts, contacting suppliers, and managing supply chain data. Automotive OEMs are leaders in sustainability, often pushing environmental, social, and governance (ESG) requirements down to their suppliers. Failure to meet them could result in the loss of lucrative contracts.
Production delays caused by substance restrictions, export challenges, and regulatory changes can severely impact automotive manufacturers. While managing a sprawling supply chain, manufacturers must also keep an eye on the horizon to ensure business continuity.
