Englewood, CO (PRWEB) August 27, 2010

PartMiner WorldWide, the global leader of electronic component intelligence, today announced the availability of environmental compliance data with its comprehensive CAPS database to help users reduce compliance risks.

CAPS now helps engineers effectively handle large volumes of data involved with RoHS, REACH and Halogen-free compliance to reduce operational costs and redundant work. PartMiner provides CAPS users in-depth information on more than 140 million parts including dynamic material content for REACH compliant, RoHS compliant and Halogen-free parts.

PartMiner’s CAPS products are web-based, environmental compliance solutions which are constantly updated and maintained with the most relevant REACH and RoHS material declaration data from manufacturers. They contain full disclosure data on electronic and electro-mechanical components from manufacturers worldwide. For REACH compliance, PartMiner indicates the Candidate List Date and the CAS number of the SVHC if the part is non-compliant.

Michael Thompson, VP of Worldwide CAPS Sales, said: “PartMiner is committed to continually gathering new data to help the complex engineering world make sense of the environmental compliance regulations and avoid costly redesigns. We want to help engineers focus on design and other top priorities.”

PartMiner’s full disclosure data helps users track a part’s compliance to existing legislation. The CAPS database contains environmental material content information on more than 32 million records for REACH compliance, 83 million records for RoHS compliance, and more than 4 million records with a low-halogen indicator. Original source data is provided in PDF form (material datasheets and CoCs).

PartMiner users can also perform important part number and manufacturer name cleansing to ensure the best possible match between a part list and the CAPS database. Parametric search, cross referencing and lifecycle forecast are some of the other beneficial features that add value to managing Bill-of-Materials and reducing risk of non-compliant or obsolescent parts.
