Varitron’s production activities and procurement efforts comply with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (ROHS) directive since its adoption in 2006. Our tough procurement policies and our rigorous inventory-management practices and material-management systems enable us to guarantee full compliance with ROHS requirements.
Varitron has been certified as a PWGSC (Public Works and Government Services Canada) Controlled Goods supplier for more than two years. The Controlled Goods program plays a vital role in the management and transfer of controlled goods used by the Canadian military and allied forces.
The association, originally called the Institute for Interconnecting and Packaging Electronic Circuits, (now IPC) has been active for more than 50 years, providing guidance to more than 3,100 companies worldwide. Varitron is an active IPC member: we are involved with multiple technical committees to help develop or update standards. Being an IPC member and sitting on technical committees ensures that Varitron can keep abreast of the latest technological advances in electronics assembly, constantly raising our technical skills to higher levels.
Joint Certification Program: U.S. – Canada
Unclassified technical data that discloses specifications for technology considered critical by the U.S. Department of Defense and/or Canadian Department of National Defense are subject to Export Control regulations.
This means access to unclassified technical data may not be exported outside of the U.S. without an approval authorization or license under U.S. or Canadian export control laws. This also means that you cannot share any unclassified technical data to which you have access with any foreign nationals in the U.S.
To facilitate authorization requests, the U.S. and Canada signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in 1985 that established the U.S. – Canada Joint Certification Program (JCP). The JCP “certifies access to unclassified technical data on an equally favorable basis to contractors of each country” through the U.S-Canada Joint Certification Office (JCO), which is located in the Defense Logistics Information Service (DLIS)(link is external). For University of Michigan (U-M) researchers, a JCP authorization is required when you plan to attend a meeting or a conference where unclassified technical data will be shared, used, or disclosed.
