RoHS and REACH compliance Certificates of Compliance

by IcyDave on Wed Jun 13, 2018 12:36 pm

Is there a repository on this site or GEO's for RoHS certificates? If not, this would be of tremendous help for anyone using your products as components in their own products. At the least, linking the RoHS icon on a given product's page to its CoC would be great.

In my specific case, I'm looking for CoCs for:
https://www.adafruit.com/product/501
and
https://www.adafruit.com/product/1995

Found the one for the RTC posted in the forums.

Thanks,
IcyDave

Send a note containing a link to this page to support@adafruit.com. The folks there will be able to get you any certs we have on file.

Thank you, the staff was very quick to respond and provide the requested CoCs. Still, please consider simply linking to them or having a page as a repository for them.

Have a great day.

We tried that for a while. The links only served as magnets for every self-proclaimed compliance officer with their own list of demands for what we 'must' do, plus a list of other documents we should provide.

That's not what we do. We're a hobbyist supply company with an emphasis on helping beginners get started. Anyone who wants a fully documented supply chain with compliance certificates, ISO-9000 documents, product change notices, etc, will do better to work with real industrial distriutors like Digikey or Mouser. Keeping that paperwork in order is part of the service they provide. We admire their ability to do the job as well as they do, but that isn't the business we want to be in.

Wow, okay, thanks for the explanation. And thanks, again, for the quick help last week.
