Responsible Business Operations
At Creation Technologies, we realized quickly that environmental protection legislation (such as the European Union’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances and RoHS Recast) presents us all with an opportunity to look ahead to the future and do our part in helping to make responsible decisions for our environment.
Creation began producing lead-free product in 2004, and today builds products that are RoHS-compliant, as well as compliant with many other product and region-specific regulations for our customers.
Our Compliance Assurance System encompasses manufacturing, materials and downstream supply chain controls, and is fully integrated within our quality system framework.
In addition to rigorous systems to ensure you have complete peace of mind during the manufacturing process, we have also developed an industry-leading program to support our customers in their own transitions to green product.
