With revenues and reputations at stake, manufacturers, importers and distributors of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) are focussed on minimizing the risk that product sales in Europe are stopped and/or products are recalled due to non-compliance with requirements in the RoHS2 Directive 2011/65/EC. 

To help US manufacturers to navigate the regulatory requirements, SGS, the global leader in chemical testing and certification services, and ENVIRON, manager of the industry-led materials declarations web database service, will host a free EU RoHS2 compliance seminar.

Attendees will hear the UK RoHS2 Regulator Chris Smith explain the new EU legislative framework, RoHS2 scope, CE marking and Technical Documentation requirements, and why the business penalties for non-compliance are now much higher.  SGS and ENVIRON will then highlight the business benefits of their new RoHS Compliance Assessment Service Using BOMcheck. 

The seminar will be held at the Fort Worth Convention Center, Texas and will be co-located with the SMTA International Conference  and the IPC Fall Standards Development Meetings.  The seminar will start at 4.00pm Central Time on Monday 14 October and will conclude with a cocktail reception where attendees can discuss their detailed questions with Chris, SGS and ENVIRON.       

The seminar is free-of-charge but you must register to attend.
