A supplier can make a Regulatory Compliance Declaration for a list of parts provided that all parts in the list have the same compliance status. Parts that claim RoHS Annex III exemptions have a different compliance status to parts that claim RoHS Annex IV exemptions.  Parts that claim Annex III exemptions can be used in any type of product (all RoHS categories) whereas parts that claim Annex IV exemptions are only RoHS compliant for use in Category 8 Medical Devices and Category 9 Monitoring and Control Instruments.  In particular, parts that claim Annex IV exemptions are not RoHS compliant in any other type of product (RoHS Categories 1 to 7 and 10).  That is why a Regulatory Compliance Declaration for a list of parts can select Annex III exemptions or Annex IV exemptions, but can not select exemptions from both lists at the same time.  

Some suppliers supply assemblies which contain some parts that claim Annex III exemptions and other parts that claim Annex IV exemptions.  If the supplier wants to report this type of assembly in BOMcheck they will need a Super User Account.  The supplier can make one declaration for parts in the assembly that claim Annex III exemptions and another declaration for parts in the assembly that claim Annex IV exemptions, and then use the Assembly tool in their Super User Account to create an assembly which includes both these parts declarations.
