iNEMI want unique part numbers for RoHS-compliant components

The International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI), an industry-led consortium focused on strengthening the global electronics manufacturing supply chain, said the majority of its OEM and EMS members strongly support the use of unique part numbers for RoHS-compliant components.
The consortium released the following statement:

Demonstrating and certifying compliance with RoHS is a complex undertaking made more difficult
by the electronics industry’s distributed design and manufacturing supply chains and the
incompatibility between the current tin-lead (SnPb) and RoHS-compliant lead-free manufacturing
processes.Industry must have means of differentiating RoHS-compliant products that is common
across all of the companies involved in, or contributing to, product manufacture, including component suppliers, component distributors, EMS providers, OEMs and their design partners. We are convinced that the only practical way to accomplish this goal is through separate part numbers that can clearly identify RoHS compliance and manufacturing process compatibility.

iNEMI members supporting this position include: Alcatel, Celestica, Cray Inc., Dell, Delphi,HP, Intel Corporation, Jabil Circuit, Lucent Technologies, Microsoft, Plexus Corp., Sanmina-SCI Corporation, Solectron Corporation, StorageTek and Sun Microsystems.
