EPEC - Enviropass Product Environmental Compliance Form
The Enviropass Product Environmental Compliance (EPEC) form is freely available and kept up to date to help you collect environmental information from your suppliers. Feel free to use it as a template when collecting environmental data from your supply chain.
Our environmental product compliance form is a tool aiming to help collect compliance information.
Use and share the EPEC form with your colleagues and partners!
Enter the supplier name and part number(s) in the first tab of the EPEC form. Afterwards, continue to fill out each subsequent tab that applies to you.
Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory. Leaving a marked field blank might result in rejection of your EPEC form. It is also possible to provide details in the comment area at the bottom of every tab.
Here, the supplier enters general information such as the company name, the authorized representative information, the date, and any items or series references. Materials, parts, components, series, sub-assemblies, or products are entered in this latest field and should be distinguishable.
If they have identical compliance status (e.g., same RoHS, REACH and Prop. 65 information), then the supplier may enter all part numbers on the same form. List any parts with different compliance statuses separately.
The European Union RoHS tab applies to items or series used in electrical or electronic equipment and must be compatible with the European requirements. Items or series can either
If any EU RoHS exemption applies, then it must be listed accordingly.
Indicate the EU REACH Annex XVII compliance status of restricted substances (as well as any declarable SVHCs) in this tab.
If present in the evaluated items or series, list any regulated Persistent Organic Pollutants (POP) in this tab.
Products that must follow California Proposition 65 obligations belong in this tab. Include any declarable Prop. 65 substances found in the in-scope items or series.
To confirm compliance with the TSCA PBT law, you need to declare whether any restricted substances are present in your products.
To be considered low-halogen, a homogeneous material can not contain 3 halogen substances (bromine, chlorine, and fluorine) above certain thresholds.
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) serve in many applications. However, because they are PBTs, regulators strive to restrict their use.
This tab is specific to battery compliance. Indeed, the Europe RoHS tab does not typically apply to batteries. You may need to answer additional questions regarding chemical concentrations in batteries here.
Like the battery tab, declare the presence of heavy metals in packages status here to confirm packaging environmental compliance.
A separate form is available from the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI). It is the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT).
Similar to the EPEC, the CMRT is free of charge and provided in an Excel format.
Just like Conflict Minerals, a template is available from the Social Responsibility Alliance (SRA): the Slavery & Trafficking Risk Template (STRT), which is also free to download in Excel format.
