Understanding Environmental Compliance Just Got Easier IPC’s environmental symposium helps companies keep current on regulatory and customer requirements

Sep 24, 2012

To help electronics manufacturers understand recent changes and trends in environmental regulations and customer requirements, IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries® will hold an "It's Not Easy Being Green: Regulations and Industry Trends Update" symposium on October 30-31, 2012, in the San Francisco Bay area of California. The symposium will provide electronics manufacturers with up-to-date information on global regulations and customer requirements that affect all links in the supply chain.

Experts from electronics companies, governmental organizations and academia will share their unique perspectives on and experiences with the revised EU RoHS Directive, Asian chemical regulations, developments in EU REACH regulations and the new OSHA Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for classifying and labeling chemicals rule.
Day one topics include: an EU REACH update; Gallium Arsenide Industry Team (GAIT) activities report; a RoHS II review; an Asian chemical regulations overview; declaration requirements for shipping, pack and packing materials; details of work on a draft IPC guideline for defining “low-halogen” electronics; and information on OSHA’s final GHS rule.

Also on the first day, members of a solution provider panel will provide information on ways that companies can achieve regulatory compliance and meet customer expectations and requirements

On October 31, presenters will discuss energy efficiency and climate change, provide insights into iNEMI’s environmental sustainability roadmap and give a firsthand look at California’s proposed green chemistry regulation and its effects on the electronics industry. To round out the day, a panel of experts will tackle the topic of product sustainability.
