Certificate of Compliance (CoC)

A Certificate of Compliance is the declaration by a Manufacturer to a producer that the components they manufacture are RoHS compliant according to the definitions and restrictions stated in the EU RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC. The CoC is not used to calculate compliance status of a Manufacturer Part

Commodity Code

The system of identifying a commodity by an assigned number or name. A code describing a commodity or a group of commodities pertaining to goods classification


Acronym for ”Component Technology Engineer”


A legal document created for the purpose of accurately describing a single manufactured product and its component substance(s) of concern. This document is required to also detail Manufacturer information including company name, address, and the information regarding the individual creator of the document


Acronym for ”Environmental Data Manager”


Acronym for ”Environmental Data Processor”

End-of-Life Vehicles (ELV) Directive

This directive requires that vehicle manufacturers provide the information needed for dismantling a vehicle, such as details of vehicle components and location of hazardous substances, to authorized recycling facilities


Acronym for ”enterprise Product Information Management System”

Full Disclosure

Declaration of all materials in a product using a hierarchical structure

High-Temperature Reflow

Applies to components that meet higher reflow temperatures required by Lead (Pb) Free surface mount technology soldering operations

Homogeneous Material

A material that cannot be mechanically disjointed into different materials. The term homogeneous is understood as of uniform composition throughout. Examples of homogeneous materials would be individual types of plastics, ceramics, glass, metals, alloys, paper, board, resins and coatings. The term mechanically disjointed means that the materials can be, in principle, separated by mechanical actions such as unscrewing, cutting, crushing, grinding and abrasive processes


Acronym for ”Item Creation & Classification System”. ICCS acts as the link for some data between WPA and MMI’s PLM systems


Acronym for ”International Material Data System”. It is the automotive industry material data system. In the IMDS, all materials used for car manufacture are archived and maintained. Only in this way is it possible to meet the obligations placed on car manufacturers, and thus on their Manufacturers, by national and international standards, laws and regulations


Acronym for ”Joint Electron Device Engineering Council” which is now known as the JEDEC Solid State Technology Association. The semiconductor engineering standardization body of the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA).  EIA is a trade association that represents all areas of the electronics industry

Lead (Pb) Free

Electrical and electronic assemblies and components in which the Lead (Pb) level in any of the homogeneous materials and the end product is less than 0.1% by weight


A material is made up of one or more substances, and is one or more of the components making up a product. For example, plastics are materials that contain numerous substances. Some of these substances may require disclosure, such as flame retardants, asbestos fillers, certain colorants, as well as substances that are not restricted by law, but are required by Manufacturer agreement

Partial Disclosure

Declaration of only banned and reportable materials in a product


A manufactured item with a unique identification number (part number). The item (as delivered in commerce) that the respondent is supplying (e.g., assembly, subassembly, component, raw material) is the product. All products will have at least one substance, and frequently many materials and substances. Products may also include sub-parts, which are treated as materials


Atoms that disintegrate by the emission of radiations, most frequently alpha and beta particles, and/or gamma radiation

REACH Directive

In an effort to simplify and streamline chemical regulation, the European Commission has presented a proposal for a new regulatory framework for chemicals. Under the new system, known as REACH (Registration, Evaluation, and Authorization of Chemicals), businesses that manufacture or import more than one metric ton of a chemical substance annually would be required to register it in a central database.(Website: http://ec.europa.eu)


Materials that can be put or pass through a cycle again, as for further treatment


The Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations 2004 implement the provisions of the European Parliament and Council Directive on the Restrictions of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment (2002/95/EC) (RoHS Directive). The restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment applies to the following substances: Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Hexavalent Chromium, PBB and PDBE. In order to comply with the EU RoHS legislation all of these substances must either be removed, or must be reduced to within maximum permitted concentrations, in any products containing electrical or electronic components that will be sold within the European Union after 1 July 2006

RoHS Compliance

For the purposes of the RoHS Regulations, a maximum concentration value to 0.1% by weight in homogeneous materials for lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, PBB and PBDE and of up to 0.01% by weight in homogeneous materials for cadmium will be permitted in the manufacture of new EEE (Electrical and Electronic Equipment)


Substances are chemical elements and their compounds. In general, these are the basic building blocks of materials, and thus products. Substances are the subjects of the legislation or other reporting requirements. Examples of substances include elements such as copper and zinc as well as complex compounds such as the ozone depleting chemicals such as CFCs, HCFCs and HBFCs

Substances of Concern (SoC)

A group of chemical compounds and chemical elements that are of concern due to regulatory and/or contractual restrictions. Many of these restrictions are specific to a nation or a union of nations. The EIA has outlined many of these substances in the Joint Industry Standards (JIS). These standards (and proposed standards) are currently divided into two groups; Level A and Level B substances. Examples of substances of concern include elements such as lead and cadmium

Threshold Level

Concentration level, which defines the limit, above which the presence of a substance or material in a product or subpart must be declared. For example: for the Joint Industry Guide A list, the threshold level is usually set at any intentional addition unless the statutory level at which regulation takes place is more stringent. For Level B, the default threshold level is frequently 1000 (or 75) parts per million. These levels are calculated based on the total product weight. Reporting below the threshold level is allowed, but not required

WEEE Directive

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (2002/96/EC) mandates that producers of electronic equipment exported to and manufactured within the European Union be financially responsible for the recovery, recycling and environmentally-sound treatment of WEEE
