Most manufacturers focus on product inspection when faced with chemical substance relevant environment protection regulations (e.g. the RoHS directive/REACH regulations by the EU and control regulations by countries around the world). Yet this alone does not conform to due diligence requirements.
As long-term development is concerned with the most effective prevention measures is to implement conformity management system, i.e. the Hazardous substance process management (HSPM) standard QC 080000 (based on ISO 9001) by the IEC Quality Assessment System for Electronic Components Committee may service the industry as guidelines for chemical substance management.
