ESG Compliance

ESG Compliance | Consolidated Electronic Wire and Cable

Now more than ever, businesses are becoming aware of their duty to protect the environment, support social responsibility, and uphold fair governance. As a manufacturer of standard and custom electronic wires and cables, Consolidated Electronic Wire & Cable is dedicated to maintaining the highest levels of ESG and industry compliance. We hold several certifications that show our commitment to limiting our environmental impact and setting a positive example in the world.

Environmental. Social. Corporate Governance.

What Is ESG Compliance?

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) compliance refers to a set of standards used by a business to create internal policies. These guidelines are directly related to how the company reduces its impact on the environment, drives positive social change, and manages leadership. Since many of these policies are required by regulatory organizations, businesses will increasingly need to comply with ESG principles. Our ESG compliance efforts help our clients meet their own ESG requirements.

Ensuring Industry & ESG Compliance: Our Certifications

To demonstrate our compliance with all three areas of ESG, Consolidated Electronic Wire & Cable complies with these certifications and regulations.

Certificate of Origin

A Certificate of Origin (CO) is an important international trade document that certifies where goods from a specific export shipment are fully obtained, manufactured, produced, or processed in a particular country. The CO serves as a declaration by the exporter and is used to levy any appropriate import duties.

RoHS Compliance

RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances), also known as directive 2011/65/EU (which includes the directive 2015/863/EU amendment), restricts the use of specific hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products. Since July 1, 2006, all applicable products in the EU market must pass RoHS compliance.

Certificate of Compliance

Also called a certificate of conformance or a certificate of conformity, a certificate of compliance is a quality assurance document certified by a competent third-party authority. It states that the supplied goods or services meet the required specifications.


The United States, Mexico, and Canada updated NAFTA to create the USMCA, an agreement beneficial for North American workers, ranchers, farmers, and businesses. The agreement, which went into effect on July 1, 2020, supports high-paying jobs for Americans, creates a more balanced environment for trade, and helps grow the North American economy.

Producers, importers, and exporters need to use a USMCA certificate of origin to seek preferential treatment for their products under this agreement. This certificate is evidence that their goods fulfill the original requirements of the agreement.

REACH SVHC Compliance

REACH Certificate of Compliance is a document certifying that a product is compliant with the European Union EU REACH regulation (EC) No 1907/2006. The regulation requires manufacturers to disclose the presence of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) in their products.

Proposition 65 Compliance

Officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, Proposition 65 is a California regulation that requires the state to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. Businesses selling products into California must provide warning labels on their products if dictated by the Prop 65 usage guidelines.

Conflict Minerals Disclosure

Conflict Minerals refers to four raw minerals and their derivatives:

  • Columbite-tantalite or coltan (from which tantalum is derived)
  • Cassiterite (tin)
  • Wolframite (tungsten)
  • Gold

Many of the mines for these minerals fund illegal activities and do not comply with environmental regulations. They contribute to water or land pollution, soil erosion, and other environmental damage. Conflict minerals regulations aim to cut the funding of these operations. Publicly traded companies in the U.S. are required to submit a conflict minerals disclosure under the U.S. Dodd-Frank Act Section 1502. The disclosure states the source and origin of any conflict minerals present in an organization’s product.


The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) gives the EPA the authority to require record-keeping, reporting, testing, and restrictions regarding chemical substances and mixtures. Food, drugs, pesticides, cosmetics, and other substances are generally excluded from TSCA.


A full materials disclosure (FMD) is a comprehensive list of all materials used in a company’s products. Consolidated Electronic Wire & Cable provides these lists for our products on their respective product pages.

Other Regulations

Consolidated Electronic Wire & Cable meets the requirements of these additional regulations upon request.


Similar to REACH SVHC, REACH Annex XVII imposes control over harmful substances in the European Union. Substances listed in Annex XVII of the REACH regulation are considered to be more harmful and therefore have different restriction levels.


Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are documents that provide information about the potential hazards of a specific chemical or substance. Regulations require documents to be stored in any facility where the chemical is used, so those using the substance can quickly and easily find the necessary safety information about it.


The International Material Data System (IMDS) is an online database that the automotive industry uses to access information about substances and materials used in vehicles. IMDS was created in 2000 to comply with environmental regulations and provides automakers with details about the composition of materials in products.
