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