It's a continuing challenge to stay current on global environmental regulations and issues such as EU RoHS exemption requests, China RoHS, EU REACH and the EU Circular Economy Strategy.
That is why IPC and ITI are again joining forces to help keep you ahead of the curve with the 2016 Conference on Emerging & Critical Environmental Product Regulations. This year's conference is your opportunity to hear expert insights on the recent EU Court of Justice decision on the definition of "article" and its impact on EU REACH, new developments for the EU RoHS exemption requests, and the recast and use changes to China RoHS.
The conference will feature compelling keynote presentations from well-known United Kingdom (UK) regulators Steve Andrews, of the UK Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs; and Dave Symons, of the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills and the Department for Energy and Climate Change.
An expert panel of electronic supply chain members and professionals will also discuss alternatives assessment — including the positive or negative impacts of substituting materials in products — and how to manage materials deselection based on assessments. Panelists include, by location:
- Boston: Pam Eliason, TURI; Martha Coopersmith Gray, Ampehnol TCS; Stephen Greene, EMC Corporation
- Chicago: Dr. John Howarter, Purdue University; Haim Eliyahu, Molex Inc.; Bill Olson, Seagate Technology
- Silicon Valley: Corrine Holmes, Microsoft Corporation; John Katz, EPA Region 9; Neil Smith, Isola Group SARL
This conference will provide anyone who is responsible for keeping their organization in compliance with environmental regulations the tools they need to comply with legal, regulatory, and customer requirements.
