Supply Chain

We set out our expectations of supplier environmental performance in the ResMed Supplier Manual.

We reward suppliers by our rating system if they operate to a certified environmental standard (e.g., ISO 14001).

Our regular quality audit of supplier facilities includes observations on environmental performance.

Our expectations of suppliers include:

Maintaining and disclosing up-to-date, traceable information for every individual (homogeneous) material, as required;

Compliance with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances directive. RoHS status is confirmed as part of the approval process on all new components and changes to existing components;

Supply pre-RoHS original or, where directed, alternative RoHS-compliant parts;

Compliance with Health Canada requirements for disclosure of DEHP (found in flexible PVC) or BPA (found in polycarbonate); and

Compliance with the European Union's 2006 Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulations for substances of very high concern.
