How does BOMcheck manage changes in RoHS exemptions?

If a supplier claims that the use of certain substances in their parts is exempted under the RoHS Directive, then BOMcheck requires the supplier to select which particular exemption the supplier is claiming.   If a particular exemption is removed from the RoHS Directive, BOMcheck will require all supplier members that relied on the exemption to update their substance declarations to indicate whether their parts still comply.

The recent removal of the Deca BDE exemption is a good example.  Many manufacturers had not gathered sufficient information from their suppliers and so had to re-contact their suppliers to confirm whether they had relied on this exemption.
