Federal-Mogul Restricted Substances

Federal-Mogul Restricted Substance Management Standard (RSMS)

In order to help ensure that Federal-Mogul and customers using our parts and components fully meet applicable legal and customer standards regarding toxic materials used in our products and theirs, we are issuing this Standard. The products we produce come largely from materials you supply to us. Therefore, this Standard seeks to inform you of the materials we must exclude from our products altogether and the limits we have on the amount of certain other materials, because of environmental and related concerns.

Federal-Mogul's Standard orginally took place on April 1, 2004.  The latest version is effective
January 1, 2016.  Federal-Mogul will modify or clarify the standard on an annual basis. 

If you are currently shipping to us materials that contain substances banned by this standard, or amounts of substances that exceed concentration or weight limits specified in the standard, please notify your Supply Chain representative. Please specify whether you believe you will be able to eliminate or sufficiently reduce such materials so that you can comply with the Standard If you indicate not, we will contact you to discuss how we can mutually resolve the situation.  Those who do not file any verification, or who do not indicate that they have an effective plan in place to meet the Standard very promptly, are subject to termination as suppliers.

For some products and/or toxic materials, Federal-Mogul may determine that all or particular suppliers will need to perform — and send to us the results of — periodic tests on product content. This could apply, for example, to certain cases of minerals that may be subject to natural contamination by a banned or limited toxic substance. Federal-Mogul will contact affected suppliers as and when such requirements may be needed.

Except where Federal-Mogul has specified testing requirements and procedures, it expects that the statements made by its suppliers will be based on good faith, expert judgment and/or testing that the supplier is already doing or has done.

If you have any questions or comments on this Standard, please contact your Supply Chain representative.
