Material Declarations, Conflict Minerals, REACH and RoHS Mercury Free
Do you require material documentation that goes beyond a generic RoHS or REACH compliance letter? When certificate of compliance letters for REACH or RoHS are not sufficient, Fastenal Quality Assurance can provide a Full Material Declaration (FMD). The FMD exhibits the material substances and weight percentage for the primary substances of a product and any subsequent layers (i.e., platings or any coating added to the part), as well as the CAS numbers which classify each substance used. An FMD can be expressed to meet any customer requirement, in a variety of formats. Currently Fastenal posts FMDs as Excel spreadsheets in customer (or FNL standard) layout, as well as via web-based data storage such as IMDS, BOMCheck and newly-added GDX by QPoint Technology. Email your request to email@example.com.
Under the Dodd-Frank Act, all publically traded companies must report to the SEC, the origin of conflict minerals. Conflict Minerals are Tantalum, Tungsten, Tin and Gold and sometimes referred to as 3TG minerals, if they are deemed to originate from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and surrounding area. Fastenal has 1000’s of vendors and between standard and Branch Special Stock part numbers, there are millions of skus to consider. Until Fastenal has evaluated our company as a whole, our stance on Conflict Minerals can be viewed in the link below to our Conflict Minerals Letter of Intent. However, requests for Conflict Minerals reporting on a product level can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, and must be accompanied by a summary report for all part numbers ending up in the customer’s final product taken to the market. Products other than those are not relevant to the Act.
