Raw Material Documentation

ERA boasts the most comprehensive suite of tools for collecting documentation from upstream suppliers and their materials, including the origin and processing locations of those materials, the market transactions they were involved in, and much more.

Supplier Registration Portal

Suppliers can autonomously register themselves and provide essential information on their company, the materials they supply, their movement down the supply chain, the quantity (percentage/weight) of raw material and recycled content present, and fill out other required fields with ease.

Material Identification Form

Custom forms for authorized suppliers to input the materials they source and process (not restricted to a predefined list), allowing clients to monitor the flow of materials and trace their compositions and value-added steps.

Master List of FEOC Entities

When approving a supplier, clients have the ability to cross-reference a complete list of Foreign Entities of Concern (FEOC) and determine whether the supplied materials or products came in contact with any of them.

Automated Revision Tracking

Every data entry field in our supplier forms is tagged with the ID of the user who filled it in and a timestamp. Clients can export this exhaustive history of all responses to a report for auditing and internal review purposes.

Responsible Sourcing

There is no easier way to guarantee that your supply chain information is transparent, accurate, and intact than by trusting ERA's responsible sourcing features.

Prove Compliance

ERA's software provides a dedicated report for the immediate identification of IRA- and UFLPA-compliant suppliers at every step of the supply chain.

Detect Anomalies in Production Data

ERA's software integrates with mining facilities' ERP systems for seamless retrieval of production data (quantities of material extracted/utilized, lab test results, etc.), flagging any values outside set tolerance ranges for internal auditing.

Verify Third-Party Assessments are Complete

Clients have the option to request evidence of a supplier's certifications and third-party assessments (in the form of attached documents) within the Supplier Registration Form, including RMAP and IRMA certificates.

Ensure Material Originates from Registered Mines

With built-in material sourcing assurance, physical location displays, SDS integration, and a mandatory e-signature option (using legally-binding text), clients can verify a supplier's location and prove their material did not come from offsite or comingled with a registered mine.


Audits, Reports, and Tax Credits

Taking a proactive approach to supply chain sustainability and IRA compliance hinges on actionable data... and the right tools to validate and make the most of it.

Sourcing and ESG Reports

ERA's Sustainability Software compiles ESG data from all your supply chain participants and uses it to populate built-in reports with calculations for air emissions, water discharges, energy consumption, and other environmental metrics, according to global reporting standards (GRI, SASB, CDP, etc.).

Tax Credit Optimization

By downloading a complete record of a vehicle's assembly profile (country, date, raw material in battery, proportion of external/recycled material), clients can produce a report that streamlines allocation decisions for batteries and optimizes tax credit opportunities for IRA-compliant vehicles.

Internal Auditing Protocols

Clients can query tagged supplier data and download a report that flags any discrepancies, which serves as the basis of on-site, in-person audits as required.

Third-Party Auditing Partnerships

Over the years, ERA has established partnerships with AECOM, Benchmark, Tetra Tech, and other consulting firms that specialize in the kind of regular audits clients need to verify their suppliers' data is faultless.
