RoHS Compliance: A Requirement for Accessing the EU Market
The EU RoHS Directive covers any business that sells electric and electronic equipment (EEE), subassemblies, cables, components, or spare parts in the EU that may contain any of 10 restricted substances. Requirements under the act are well established and equally well enforced.
Assent has helped hundreds of companies. We’re proud to work with the following organizations.
Don’t Just Meet Your RoHS Requirements — Start Outdoing Them
While rules for RoHS compliance are well-established, labeling requirements can be complicated, data can be difficult to collect, and the actual data you need often changes as exemptions expire, new substances are restricted, and parts are altered.
Assent’s solution was built in collaboration with supply chain and regulatory experts, giving you the deep insights you need to avoid costly enforcement action despite complex requirements — and continue your company’s growth in the EU.
The Risks of RoHS Non-Compliance
Companies that don’t get the real insights needed for RoHS compliance take on significant risks:
- Economic loss: Losing access to the EU market could cause major financial pain.
- Reputation: Bad PR around substances in your products could have devastating consequences.
- Inability to prove compliance: Without a streamlined process — and deep visibility into your supply chain — it won’t be easy.
- Taking focus away from your people: In the event of a compliance challenge, staff will spend time resolving the issue rather than focusing on the jobs they were hired to do.

Better Data, Fewer Resources
ESCATEC, an electronic and mechatronic design and contract manufacturing company, is required to regularly audit and report on their use of conflict minerals. The company worked with Assent to roll out a consolidated supply chain data management solution to meet their REACH and RoHS requirements.
Since implementing the Assent Compliance Platform, the company has seen a 50 percent improvement in completion time and accuracy, as well as a reduction in resources needed to achieve compliance.Read the Case Study
