Presentation Overview
  • In this presentation, we will
  • Provide an introduction to the Tyco Electronics
    RoHS Initiative
  • Give a high level overview of the entire Material
    Disclosure process
  • Describe the Matrix Compliance Central tools that
    are used in the process
  • Compliance Connect (CC) Supplier Web Portal
  • Compliance Connect (CC) Spreadsheet
  • Present in depth coverage of how to provide
    Material Disclosure to Tyco Electronics using the
    MCC tools
  • This presentation is intended for use by
  • Suppliers who have been requested to provide
    Material Disclosure of products sold to Tyco
    Electronics
  • Any internal Tyco users who need to support
    suppliers using the MCC tools

Purpose of Tyco Electronics Material Disclosure
  • Regulatory Requirements Tyco Electronics, like
    other companies in the electronics industry, is
    following the European Union (EU) directive on
    Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) in
    products, and other similar environmental
    regulations.
  • Full Material Disclosure Due to these
    environmental regulations, many customers are
    asking for full material disclosure (that is, to
    reveal all materials that are present in a Tyco
    Electronics product purchased by them, including
    restricted and reportable substances and recycled
    content). Tyco Electronics is fully committed to
    satisfying these mandates from our customers and
    OEMs. This means that Tyco Electronics must, in
    turn, collect full material disclosure from our
    suppliers on products we purchase. Providing such
    disclosures can also circumvent future requests
    if the threshold limits or substances in the
    regulations change (since we will know the
    composition of the products). Our mutual
    business success and sales growth depend on a
    cooperative effort across our entire Supply
    Chain.
  • Compliance Connect Tool Tyco Electronics is
    using MatrixOnes Compliance ConnectTM, reporting
    Tool (a Microsoft Excel-based data collection
    spreadsheet) to collect full material disclosure
    from our suppliers. Compliance ConnectTM is
    becoming a widely-used industry solution for
    collecting material disclosure information to
    meet this customer requirement.
  • Part data It is imperative that each of our
    suppliers must provide all the information
    requested on the parts currently being sold to
    Tyco Electronics or pending sourcing decision.
    Your certification of and responsibility for the
    accuracy of the data you provide is critical.
  • Ensuring Accuracy You will help ensure the
    accuracy of your data by adhering to the
    reporting structure of the Compliance ConnectTM
    Tool, which we will explain in this document.

Completing the CC Spreadsheet Part Tree Sheet
Step 2c. Check the Check Part Tree button at
any time to confirm that all part tree data
entered so far is valid.
Step 2a. Complete a row for each saleable part
(i.e. each part you sell to Tyco).
Step 2b. Add a sub-part row for each saleable
part. Enter each part on its own line at the
appropriate sub-part level.
Step 2d. Repeat for all saleable parts.
Note If you have a saleable or sub-part with
both materials and subpart(s), make a container
subpart for the material(s). The suggested sub
part name is the parent name plus an identifier,
as in A-72 (paint).
28
Completing the CC Spreadsheet Part Tree Sheet
Suppliers will fully define the part structure
for the supplied parts to Tyco, showing the parts
at each assembly level within a part tree or BOM
structure.
  • Enter information for all top level parts in the
    Saleable Parts Field.
  • If the part is not an assembly, proceed to the
    Materials tab (Step 3).
  • Provide the complete BOM in the Sub-Part fields
    to the right on the spreadsheet. Part information
    should be staggered in the Part Tree Tab. Parts
    for each descending assembly level should begin
    beneath its parent assembly.
  • Parts for each descending assembly level should
    begin one row beneath its parent assembly.
  • Please, do not input data in grayed cells
    throughout the spreadsheet. It is
    recommend that you work from left to right across
    the spreadsheet.
  • Click the "Overall Help" button on the Part Tree
    tab for detailed instructions.
  • Use the "Check Part Tree Data" button to verify
    that all required information has been entered
    and in the proper format.
  • Correct and check data input until it passes the
    data check.

29
Completing the CC Spreadsheet The Materials
Sheet
Step 3c. Check the Check Materials Data button
to confirm that all data entered so far is valid.
Step 3a. Add a row for each custom material you
need to define.
Step 3b. Add substance rows for each substance in
each material. When you click in the name or CAS
number cell, a list of substances will appear.
Enter one substance per line.
Step 3d. Repeat adding materials.
30
Completing the CC Spreadsheet The Materials
Sheet
  • Here you will provide information about the
    materials used in the parts reported in the Part
    Tree tab. Materials here will be used during
    next step (Part Detail tab).
  • Begin by entering the name of each material you
    wish to create.
  • Complete the materials information by providing
    the name and concentration of substances found
    in the material.
  • In the Substance section select from the drop
    down list of substances and CAS numbers provided.
  • For any proprietary items, use the
    'miscellaneous/system' selection from the CAS
    list. This should only include substances that
    are not on the 'list of concern.
  • Columns O to U (Substance section) request
    specific information about restricted substances.
    Concentration of the restricted substances are
    entered there.
  • The sum of the substance concentrations reported
    for each material must equal 100 or 1 million
    parts per million. However, declarations allow up
    to 20 of the material to be undisclosed for
    proprietary considerations.
  • Alloy composition, substance content, post
    industrial and post-consumer recycled content
    should be verified with the material
    manufacturer.
  • Click the "Overall Help" button on the Material
    tab for detailed instructions.
  • Use the "Check Materials Data" button to verify
    that all required information has been entered
    correctly.
  • Correct and check data input until it passes the
    data check.
  • If at any time you make any changes to the data
    you will need to click on the Check Materials
    Data button again before proceeding to the next
    tab.

perform final validation checks, answer the
certification question and export file to be sent
to Tyco.
Step 4a. Add a Part row for each part. When you
click in a Part Number, Revision, or Data cell, a
list with the remaining leaf parts will appear.
Enter one part per line.
Step 4b. Add Material rows for each material in
part. When you click in a material name,
Tradename, or Manufacturer Name cell, a list of
Custom/Standard Materials will appear. Enter one
material per line.
Step 4c. Repeat adding parts until all lowest
level (leaf) parts on Part Tree tab are reported.
32
Completing the CC Spreadsheet The Part Detail
Sheet
The Part Detail tab requires suppliers to
identify the material that each bottom level part
is made from. This is where you correlate the
Part Tree tab information to the actual
materials that comprise the part. Thus, you are
reporting which materials are in what parts. To
recap
  • Click on the first cell under Part Number and
    select a bottom level part from the list.
  • Enter the part attributes (column headings have
    red text) on the first line.
  • On subsequent lines, enter information regarding
    the material(s) comprising that part (green
    headings).
  • For each material in a part, click the cell under
    Material Name and select a material from the
    list.
  • The Material Name list is generated by material
    record entries created in the Material tab.
  • Click the "Overall Help" button on the Part Tree
    tab for detailed instructions.
  • Use the "Check Part Detail Data" button to verify
    that all required information has been entered
    and is in the proper format.
  • After the data has been verified in the Part
    Detail tab, the Certify and Export button will
    become enabled. Certify and Export the data only
    if there are no substances of concern as shown in
    the next tab.

you click in a Part Number, Revision, or Data
cell, a list with the remaining SoC parts will
appear. Enter one part per line.
Step 5b. Add Compliant Part availability
information.
Step 5c. Repeat adding parts until all Substance
of Concern parts are reported.
34
Completing the CC Spreadsheet Substance of
Concern Sheet
This is where you provide Tyco information about
parts that contain restricted substances and your
roadmap to eliminate them or achieve RoHS
compliance. If no RoHS substance of concern
(SoC) is reported in the composition of the
component, you do not need to complete this tab.
If any of the parts contain materials that have
substance concentrations exceeding 0.01
Cadmium 0.1 Lead, Hexavalent Chromium,
Mercury, PBBs or PBDEs they will automatically
populate here.
  • Begin by clicking on the first cell under Part
    Number. It will pre-populate the spreadsheet with
    the parts that contain substances of concern.
  • Enter the data requested as shown in the SoC tab
    description table.
  • You are first asked for the date that a ROHS
    compliant sample, and then a full-scale compliant
    part, will be available. If the part is already
    compliant because it is exempt (i.e. high
    temperature lead, mercury in lamps below 0.005 g,
    etc.), then insert the date you completed the
    form. If you have an alternate part that is RoHS
    compliant, and it is currently available, then
    also insert the date you completed the form.

Glossary
54
Assembly Level Assembly levels are used to
identify the location of detail components within
the parts structure in a bill of materials.
Saleable parts are assembly level 1. The
components (including subassemblies) comprising
the saleable part are assembly level 2, and so
forth. Basic Substances - these include the
materials main ingredients (e.g. basic polymer,
filler material, etc.), and are not part of the
substances identified as Declarable Substances.
Bill of Materials - The BOM (Bill of Material)
is that list of the components and/ or materials,
further broken down to the Homogeneous Material
level, that are present in the end product as
delivered to the customer. The BOM, as used in
this standard, includes the Engineering BOM
(EBOM), also called a parts list, typically from
a drawing or data base, and other materials that
may be included in the end product as it is
manufactured, e.g. contact lubricants, etc. If a
material is used during the production of the
product, but it is not in the product as it is
delivered to the customer, that material is not a
constituent of the BOM, e.g. a lubricant that is
washed off during the Tyco Electronics
manufacturing process. The BOM is for product
only and does not include packaging. Bottom
level part A part that is not an assembly, that
is, a single piece item that is not comprised of
multiple parts. Bottom level parts are also
referred to as lowest-level or leaf-level parts.
55
Chemical Abstractive Service (CAS) Numbers CAS
numbers are a unique identifier assigned to
substances to eliminate the confusion and
ambiguity of having more that one scientific or
common name for a substance. Known organic and
inorganic substances have CAS Numbers. Chlorofluo
rocarbons (CFCs) Chemicals sometimes used as
propellants in aerosol cans or as
refrigerants. Component A component is a
complete assembly or a part within an assembly
that builds a complete product. A system,
assembly, sub-assembly, sub-component,
semi-component or part are synonyms for a
component. Confidential Substances -
Confidential Substances are substances which are
determined by the supplier to be proprietary to
that supplier. Confidential Substances can not be
more than 20 by weight of the homogeneous
material. Confidential Substances can not be
Declarable Substance. Declarable Substances -
Substances at the homogeneous level which must be
declared (including their CAS numbers) according
to those shown on Tyco Electronics Form 5081-2.
Those substances listed on Form 5081-2 are those
noted in JIG Material Composition Declaration
Guide, VDA List of Declarable Materials 232-101
and others deemed of interest by Tyco
Electronics.
56
Homogeneous material - A material, in the form
found in the end product, which cannot be
mechanically disjointed into different materials
homogeneous materials are materials of uniform
composition throughout. Ceramics, glass, metals,
alloys, plating, board, resins, coatings are
examples. The term mechanically disjointed
means that the materials can be, in principle,
separated by mechanical actions such as
unscrewing, cutting, crushing, grinding and
abrasive processes. Examples of Homogeneous
Materials A component that is overmolded would
be considered two separate homogeneous materials
and reported as such, e.g. plastic overmolding on
a lead frame. A mixture, such as a base resin
with glass, flame retardant and/ or colorant that
is added to provide an integral function,
performance and/ or appearance enhancement, shall
be reported as one homogeneous material, provided
that in the end product the material can not be
mechanically disjointed. However, each
substance must be reviewed and included in the
disclosure for the homogenous material. An
electrical component such as a resistor would
consist of a variety of homogeneous materials
that could include ceramic, the lead frame alloy,
and the plating applied to the lead frame. Each
of these must be treated as a homogeneous
material and evaluated for controlled
substances. An adhesive which may be purchased as
two separate compounds will be reported as its
final form in the end product, e.g. a cured
system.
57
IMDS The International Material Data System
an automotive industry part content data
collection system used by many OEMs.
Intentionally added - Deliberate use of a
substance in the formulation of a material/
component where its continued presence is desired
to provide a specific characteristic, appearance
or quality. If a material is intentionally added
at any point in the supply chain it must
consistently be treated as intentionally added
through the final product assembly. Also any
catalysts or processing aids that are introduced
during the manufacturing process and remain as
part of product are always considered intentional
additions. Macros An action or set of actions
you can use to automate tasks. Materials -
Chemical compounds and formulated substances that
are supplied for the production of components.
Examples of materials are plastics/ resins,
metals, coatings, paint, adhesives,
etc. Material Declaration - A material
declaration is intended to disclose the
substances that are present in a Tyco Electronics
product. The requirements for which type of
materials/ substances that are included in a
Material Declaration are often dictated by a
customer. Therefore, the actual Material
Declaration may have various formats and
threshold limits, as well as include all or
sub-sets of the Substances found on Form 5081-2.

Pre-Consumer Recyclate The portion of a
material's weight that has been recovered from or
otherwise diverted from the industrial waste
stream for the purpose of recycling. Pre-consumer
recyclate does not include home scrap.
Pre-consumer recyclate is also referred to as
rework, post-industrial materials, and
post-process materials. Pre-consumer recyclate is
material recovered from the waste stream of a
manufacturing process for use in a different
manufacturing process or has been
recycled/recovered by a third party and returned
to the manufacturing process. Post-Consumer
Recyclate The portion of a material's weight
that comes from products or materials that have
served their intended end uses and have been
recovered from or otherwise diverted from the
consumer waste stream for the purpose of
recycling. An example is recycled beverage
containers that are sources of material for auto
parts. RDO/ECO (Responsible Design Owner/
Engineering Control Organization) The
engineering organization that has design control
of a product, the RDO/ECO has the authority to
maintain and change the engineering information,
drawings, specifications, etc., controlling a
specific product.

  • Recording of Substance and Product Information in
    Systems
  • Information in the Compliance Central system will
    be recorded for a material, specification and/ or
    components using an appropriate Tyco Electronics
    part number or specification number scheme.
  • The products BOM shall be used to identify the
    individual components and any materials, also
    substances that are included, and remain, during
    the manufacturing process. If alternate materials
    are permitted to manufacture the product,
    information for these materials is to be
    reported.
  • The mass of each component shall
  • use SI units.
  • be within /- 10 accuracy.
  • use the maximum plating thickness and area for
    plated parts.
  • use a calculated volume and density or actual
    measured weight.
  • Any change to the materials and/ or mass of a
    products components, e.g. as the result of an
    engineering change, requires that the information
    recorded previously in the Compliance Central
    system be updated to represent the current
    product. Suppliers of the material and/or
    components are responsible to notify Tyco
    Electronics of changes to the product that they
    provide, see Standard 230-702.
  • Data detailing a materials substances will be
    recorded using the materials trade/ industry
    name or industry specification, not a generic
    name. For example, use Valox 420 SE0, not
    Polyester PBT, 30 glass fiber reinforced. The
    suppliers name with the trade/ industry name and
    the generic material description shall be
    available to internal Tyco Electronics use. The
    trade/ industry name shall be reported by the
    supplier.

F. Each substance shall be identified by a CAS
number. Substance concentration shall be reported
as parts per million (ppm). The formula for ppm
is 1,000,000 x mass of the substance/ mass of the
homogeneous material. Substances are subdivided
into three different substance types. a.
Basic Substances b. Declarable
Substances 1) Intentionally added Declarable
Substances shall be reported on at any level,
regardless of the ppm (parts per million) or
percent level. 2) Unintentionally added
Declarable Substances (e.g., trace elements) must
be reported at the homogeneous level, if known or
reasonably expected to be known, at any level. If
the trace level values exceed the reportable
limit, they must be reported. c. Confidential
Substances 1) Confidential Substances are
substances which are determined by the
supplier to be proprietary to that
supplier. Confidential Substances can not be
more than 20 by weight of the
homogeneous material. Confidential
Substances can not be Declarable
Substances. 2) All (100) of the substances
that are contained in a material shall be
recorded in the Tyco Electronics
Compliance Central hazardous material system
regardless of the substance type
(i.e., Basic/ Declarable/ Confidential). The
Declarable Substances in the material will be
reported as a maximum amount
(worst case) that would be found in that material.
61
The Basic Substances in a material shall be
recorded as the nominal concentration that
w would be found in that material. The sum of
the substances in a material must equal 100 of
the weight of that material/ component. To
ensure all the substances add to 100, the last
substance to be recorded should be the Basic
Substance which is the major constituent of the
material. It should be calculated as 100 - All
Other Substances major constituent of the
material. For example, a copper alloy has 40.05
of its composite derived from substances other
than copper. Therefore 100- 40.05 (all the
other substances) 59.95 copper. The copper
content of this material should be recorded as
59.95. A substance should be declared as it
exists in the final product, i.e. only those
substances that are present in the final part
should be recorded (e.g. lubricant solids, a
hardened adhesive, etc). RSRC The Regulated
Substance and Recyclability Certification System
An Internet accessible program developed and
used by DaimlerChrysler Corporation for
collection of supplier part, material, and
substance of concern data. Saleable part The
final, as shipped part supplied to Tyco.
Specific Gravity The ratio of the density of
a material (g/cm³) to that of water (1.0 g/
cm³). Substance - Chemical elements and their
compounds. A substance is either a material or a
constituent of a material. A substance is not a
constituent of a component or product. Each
substance will have a unique CAS (Chemical
Abstracts Service) number assigned to it.

General FAQs
Q Who do I contact for technical support? A If
you cannot find the answer to your problem in the
Technical FAQs section, please contact the Tyco
Electronics Help desk by phone at 717-810-3656,
877-290-8414 toll free, or 1-717-810-3656
international OR you may email your question
to supplier.rohs_at_tycoelectronics.com Q Who
should I contact for non-technical RoHS-related
support? A Please contact your local Tyco
Electronics purchasing representative. Q Why am
I assigned multiple user IDs to login into the
Tyco E-Commerce system? A This may have happened
if you have completed surveys and provided
different e-mail addresses or if we have multiple
entries in our purchasing system for the company
you represent. This should not happen often, but
when it does, you will need to sign in using all
supplied user id password combinations. This
will assure that you have completed the survey
for all part numbers requested. In cases where
parts are duplicated for the various accounts,
you may find it helpful to copy and paste
previously submitted response info. Q Why am I
presented with a drop down list of company names
when I sign into the system? A This situation
occurs when you are a representative for a number
of different companies or have data in our system
with the company names that do no match exactly.
For example Acme Inc and Acme Incorporated may
show up in the list. This is really a back-end
system problem, so you don't need to worry too
much as long as you are a representative for the
companies in your list. However, you must sign
into the system using each of the choices in the
drop-down box to assure a complete response to
the survey Responses are still needed for all
parts in cases where duplications occur for the
various accounts you may find it helpful to copy
and paste previously submitted response
information.

CC Spreadsheet FAQs
Q Is it possible to copy part data from one
location to another? A Yes. Data contained in
part or material records can be copied within the
same spreadsheet, or to another spreadsheet. Q
What if I dont have the information that is
requested in the Tyco Compliance Connect
spreadsheet? A You can find the information
requested from your Bills of Materials (BOM),
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), and from
reference guidebooks. You may also need to gather
data from your suppliers for parts your company
purchases. Q How do I report a substance if it
is not in the look up list? A If a substance is
present in your materials but not in the drop
down list, report the substance as
miscellaneous. Q Why arent all of the bottom
level parts in my Part Tree showing up in the
Material and Part Detail tab? A If you use a
bottom level part in more than one assembly in
the Part Tree, it will only appear once on the
Material tab and the Part Detail tab because you
only have to provide the information one
time. Q What do I do when I get an error that
says that my weights do not add up to 100? A
The weight of the materials that make up the part
must add up to 100 or the exact weight of the
part as listed in the Part Weight Amount
column. Also, all of the Weight Amount columns
in the substance section must add up to either
100 or the exact weight of the material.
66
CC Spreadsheet FAQs
Q I cannot generate a .mcc file. What is
wrong? A Only when you have completed the entire
Compliance Connect (CC) spreadsheet and it is
free of errors can you generate a .mcc file. Q
What is the difference between the bold headings
and the non-bold headings in the Compliance
Connect spreadsheet? A The bold headings are
columns containing required information and the
non-bold headings are columns for optional
information. Q Why are there grayed out rows on
the Part Tree and Part Detail tabs? A
Information input into Part Tree and Part Detail
tabs is to be staggered. Refer to examples in the
Compliance Connect spreadsheet. Q Why dont all
of the parts in Part Tree tab appear in Part
Detail tab? A Only lowest level parts (or
non-assemblies, bottom level, or leaf level
parts) will need material and substance
information input into Part Detail. Assemblies
cannot have material information. Material is
defined as a constituent of a component.
