A company by the name of Bostik in Middleton, MA was heavily involved with
the OSHA hazardous materials requirements in the mid nineties.  The
programming was accomplished on a PC and was managed by an in house chemist.
They may still be using MAPICS and the same process.

Subject: MAPICS Support for RoHS + WEEE 

   <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html;
charset=iso-8859-1"> 

   Is anyone doing anything with MAPICS/XA to support =he following
   European Union Directives to track hazardous substances =sed in the
   manufacturing process? These are being implemented in =urope in 2006 and
   California in 2007, with other states later. 
   The requirement is to record all lower level =aterials and components
   and be able to track compliance status at the =ower level item and at
   the parent item level if a non-compliant =omponent is in the B/M. We are
   considering using the Vendor/Item File =o keep track of the lower level
   items compliance and write a program =o roll-up the compliance status to
   the parents.

   RoHS - Reduction of Hazardous Substances
   WEEE - Waste of Electrical and Electronic =quipment

   Please let me know if anyone has any solutions on how =o handle this
   within MAPICS.

   Thanks, Peter Lizio, Electroswitch, IS Manager, =mail:
