Varian Medical Systems Uses SAP to Support Sustainability and Compliance With REACH and RoHS
Date:1/26/2012

h medical and industrial purposes. In 2010 Varian introduced a new mandate for corporate social responsibility, which included far-reaching sustainability goals. In addition, the company faced increasingly strict legislation restricting the types of materials and chemicals contained in its equipment, particularly from the RoHS directive specific to medical devices and the REACH legislation that governs products entering the European Union.

Since Varian derives approximately 30 percent of its business from sales to European Union countries, it worked with SAP to reduce risk that might occur due to non-compliance with REACH regulations. Additionally, with new RoHS regulations governing medical device manufacturers coming into effect by July 2014, Varian made it a priority to re-engineer its products to help ensure that they were created with a dual focus on sustainability and compliance.

To tackle these complex challenges, Varian is using SAP EHS Management with product compliance functionality and SAP PLM. The solutions help the company mitigate risks, achieve considerable return on investment (ROI) and reduce the time to implement engineering changes from 18 to five days within the next 12 months. Using SAP solutions, Varian was able to more quickly re-engineer its products for compliance, saving money annually in RoHS-related charges alone. Many aspects of the product compliance process were made more efficient. For example, Varian now avoids late-cycle changes because compliance checks are embedded into the design process. Additionally, it is much faster and easier to adjust administrative functions to any corresponding engineering change.

"With sustainability solutions from SAP, Varian has established a platform that allows us to collect and analyze product information from within Varian and from our supply chain, determine compliance status and design for compliance at
