With increased environmental consciousness, this paper presents an analytic network process (ANP) approach to incorporate the issue of hazardous substance management (HSM) into supplier selection. In this study, identification of criteria of HSM competence is categorized into four dimensions, a multi-criteria decision model is proposed. ANP then is applied to supplier selection and is characterized by interdependencies among decision structure components. An illustrative example in an electronics company is presented to demonstrate how to select a most appropriate suppler in accordance with the requirements of HSM for environmental regulations.
