IPC Electronics Symposium to Highlight RoHS Revisions, Other Key Regulations

Jun 21, 2010

BANNOCKBURN, IL — Environmental regulations on chemicals and substances continue to grow worldwide, often driven by political pressures. While some focus on manufacturing wastes, such as air and wastewater emissions, there is a growing lexicon of regulations which focus on the chemicals contained in products. To help companies understand new laws, regulations and regulatory trends, IPC will hold an IPC Symposium on Electronics and the Environment on July 19–21, 2010, in Boston, Mass.

Increasingly, these regulations are affecting every level of the electronics manufacturing supply chain. Symposium speakers represent companies such as Dow Electronic Materials, Celestica, Texas Instruments and Design Chain Associates. Topics include:

  • European Union’s RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) revisions

  • Latest revisions to changing EU REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) regulation

  • Overview of chemical regulatory regimes in Asia

  • Update on Canada’s Chemicals Management Plan

  • EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) interpretation of the TSCA (Toxic Substances Control Act)

  • California’s developing Green Chemistry regulations and National Standards Foundation (NSF) Sustainability Standard

  • Highlights of newly-revised IPC-1752A Materials Declaration standard and overview of tools available

  • Overview of flame-retardant regulations and voluntary halogen-free standards

Workshops are scheduled preceding and following the symposium. On July 19, the workshop, Understanding the Fundamentals of the REACH Regulation, will provide a “soup to nuts” primer that will serve as foundation for the symposium on July 20–21. On July 21, Understanding and Implementing IPC-1752A on Materials Declaration will cover new revisions to this industry standard for materials content data and will help attendees implement the changes in their companies.
