Arena PLM - Green Data Exchange Integration
Meet Growing Environmental Mandates and Customer Disclosure Requirements


Environmental compliance regulations such as
REACH, RoHS, and Conflict Minerals are complex and dynamic. Manually collecting and updating compliance information from a myriad of suppliers is inefficient and costly in today’s regulatory environment.


Q Point Green Data Exchange (GDX) integrated with Arena automates and simplifies product compliance with regulations. GDX provides you a large repository of existing compliance information. In addition, it helps you connect directly with your suppliers to obtain real-time compliance information. GDX automates the full spectrum of the process. It identifies the appropriate contact at suppliers, allowing them to respond with information in a consistent, ready-to-use format. And it provides the tools to analyze data in real time and as often as your product changes. GDX can be configured to automatically provide compliance status and evidence to supplier parts in Arena.



Obtain compliance documentation early in the design process to ensure design for compliance. Reduce time spent identifying supplier contacts and searching for information.


Meet regulatory and social responsibility requirements for environmental compliance, including the mandatory technical data and risk assessment program. Meet customer requirements for product certification and material disclosure.

Purchasing/Supply Chain

Communicate compliance requirements to suppliers. Evaluate supplier performance. Make changes to approved manufacturers and suppliers based on compliance information.

Your Company

Reduce the risk of revenue loss due to customer
or agency compliance audit failure. Meet SEC requirements for conflict minerals due diligence and reporting. Reduce compliance costs and increase operational efficiency.


In Arena, create supplier parts with supplier name and number, as well as compliance requirements (e.g., REACH, RoHS, Conflict Minerals, and Full Material Disclosures). Your supplier parts will be automatically synchronized with GDX. GDX not only provides access to existing compliance data, it provides a comprehensive method to request compliance data from your suppliers when needed. With Arena and GDX, you have better compliance visibility around your entire product.

In addition to Supplier Parts, automate the transfer of BOM  into GDX for compliance analysis

Search and filter parts in GDX to conduct analysis or identify parts requiring compliance information. View detailed information on any supplier part.

In GDX, easily send an information request to a supplier for compliance information and/or supporting documentation. Utilize the GDX management dashboard to track the status of open requests.

Finally, generate a product level certificate of compliance (CoC) to share with a customer and record in Arena PLM.
