It is based on quality management principles like strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement for the company’s products and organization.|
|RoHS certifies the environmental impact a company has, or rather, the lack of use of hazardous materials that cause damage to the environment. It also certifies that the product is free from toxic materials and occupational exposure during the entire process of manufacturing a product down to recycling it.|
|Similar to RoHS, REACH focuses on human health and environmental protection, but holds a stronger focus on chemicals. REACH stands for “Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals” to ensure a high level of chemical safety. It is an EU certification that ensures the chemicals will not adversely affect human health nor the environment.|
