Compliance and Quality

Meeting industry standards is just the beginning of the quality measures we follow. We know the materials industry—and we only work with suppliers who share our commitment to providing high quality at fair prices. Our materials specialists are personally involved in metal selection and inspection, ensuring you receive only materials that meet or exceed your expectations.

Leading Edge and our suppliers adhere to the following standards where applicable:


RoHS(Restriction of Hazardous Substances) restricts the use of lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) in electrical and electronic products.


WEEE (Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment) addresses the disposal and recycling of electric and electronic equipment.

ISO9001 + AS9100C

SAE has been developing technical standards since the early 1900s. AS9100C standards apply to quality management practices implemented by distributors and suppliers for the aerospace industry. Leading Edge is ISO9001:2008 and AS9100C registered.


DFARS (Defense Federal Acquisition Supplement) ensures that specialty metals are melted in the United States or a qualifying country.

Conflict Free Minerals

In accordance with the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform & Consumer Protection Act, Section 1502, all of the materials that we supply are Conflict Free.
