Harwin engages with Assent Compliance to assist in assuring its supply chain integrity

Harwin has appointed Ottawa-based regulatory software and services firm Assent Compliance to ‘further strengthen’ its corporate social responsibility and ‘ensure that all due diligence measures’ are taken when sourcing raw materials.

The team at Assent will be assisting with Harwin’s ongoing activities relating to materials legislation/restrictions and other global directives.

Initially, the Assent team will be involved in carrying out any required investigations across Harwin’s global network of suppliers with regard to RoHS and REACH environmental directives, as well as issues concerning conflict minerals (like gold and tin).

Over time, the scope of its work is expected to expand beyond this to accommodate additional dimensions.
