Carestream must be able to demonstrate environmental, health, and safety compliance of end-use products to our customers and to regulatory authorities. To do this, we must obtain data and declarations from our suppliers and expect that our suppliers are actively working with their suppliers to ensure compliance traceability throughout the supply chain. Accurate data is necessary in order to pay appropriate material collection and disposal fees. Carestream uses internationally recognized material declaration questionnaires and other survey methods in order to obtain this data.
The European Union EU RoHS Directive requires Carestream to obtain detailed compliance evidence for restricted materials from suppliers for Medical Equipment. To meet these regulatory requirements, Carestream requires our Suppliers to join BOMcheck- the centralized, open access substance declarations web database. BOMcheck is an industry-wide initiative using a regulatory compliance tool designed specifically to enable suppliers to provide declarations for REACH, RoHS and other restricted substances legislation.
