We asked for components that are RoHS compliant and that we receive a CoC stating this with every shipment. Some suppliers will not comply.
Again, it is in the sematics:
You asked for it. Understood.
Did they agree to do it? It seems not.
Giving an RoHS conformance statement lot by lot (or is it shipment by shipment?) is not like giving a boilerplate CoA lot by lot reporting data tested already...it is more work and likely more expense for them.
You asked for more work from them.
They said "no".
The next logical step is to see what the issue is.
If it is money (my guess), then the next step is to see :
1. what it is that you actually NEED.
2. how much it costs to get that
3. negotiate who pays what part of that cost.
FWIW, in the same position as your vendor I have quoted the additional cost of complying with your request...it wasn't cheap...in one case it tripled the cost of the goods.
Funny how that customer suddenly realized that they didn't really "NEED" it.
