Thursday April 28 2011 - REACH and ROHS Seminar - Open to All New England Organizations

Holiday Inn Boxborough Woods
Boxborough, MA 01709 (printable directions)

RoHS and REACH Training Seminar

The EU RoHS Directive is being recast as a new directive to replace the original, and will bring into scope a much wider range of products than currently. The REACH regulation is complex and has far-reaching consequences affecting not just chemical manufacturers and suppliers, but also manufacturers and distributors.

This training seminar will taught by Dr. Chris Robertson of ERA Technology, Ltd., one of the foremost EU consulting firms on RoHS and REACH, and which has counseled EU government agencies on policy for these directives. Dr. Robertson will review the latest on both directives and will draw out key developments and key dates, with particular emphasis on requirements for US firms. The program is designed to be interactive to allow delegates to air key issues relevant to them.
