As REACH continues to update and evolve, it is very important to have the ability to determine individual component compliance in a real-time environment with access to the latest compliance information from your suppliers. Of similar importance is the ability to have a direct communication link to the contacts at your suppliers who author and provide the compliance data that you need. Green Data Exchange provides this today.
