Northwest Engineering Solutions LLC (NWES) aims to comply with all environmental regulations by leveraging its relationships with suppliers, manufacturing partners, and distributors of raw materials and/or components. The European Commission, on January 27, 2003, approved the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive, Directive 2002/95/EC, which restricts certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic products. Effective July 1, 2006, RoHS directed lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, and brominated flame-retardants PBB & PBDE, be banned from electrical and electronic products sold in Europe.
NWES aims to only source REACH/RoHS compliant materials. At a customer’s request, we may request and supply certificates of compliance from suppliers and vendors who may provide components or raw materials required to manufacture products for customers. We have independently verified RoHS compliance from all of our primary vendors of manufactured systems. Based on these compliance commitments, NWES can confirm compliance with RoHS/REACH for every material that is supplied to customers who have requested such certification. NWES does not offer 3rd party independent lab testing to confirm RoHS/REACH compliance. To request a REACH, RoHS, ISO 9001, ISO 13485, or AS9100 certificate from our manufacturing partners, please contact us at email@example.com or through the web form on our contact page.
Northwest Engineering Solutions LLC (NWES) is committed to responsible global sourcing of minerals worldwide which seeks practical solutions to curb the violence associated with trade in conflict minerals and to respect basic human rights. We promote the observance of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas.
Suppliers are expected to supply materials to NWES that are "DRC conflict free." "DRC conflict free" means (1) any "conflict minerals", columbitetantalite (coltan), cassiterite, gold, wolframite, or their derivatives, tin, tantalum or tungsten (collectively the "3TGs") necessary to the functionality or production of supplied materials which do not directly or indirectly finance armed groups through mining or mineral trading in the Democratic Republic of Congo or an adjoining country, or (2) any 3TGs in supplied materials that are from recycled or scrap sources. Suppliers are expected to adopt policies and management systems with respect to conflict minerals and to require their suppliers to adopt similar policies and systems.
