on December 12th, 2007 to address the questions and concerns of manufacturers
and importers of electronics and electrical equipment (EEE) with regard to
Korea's Act for Resource Recycling of Electronic Equipment (Korea RoHS). Korea
RoHS, scheduled to take effect January 2008, is a comprehensive environmental
EEE legislation including elements of WEEE, RoHS and ELV-type regulations.
"Korea RoHS: Are You Ready?" will provide guidance on controlling costs and
quality, supply chain verification, brand protection, and how to utilize
environmental compliance as a competitive advantage.

    - Product management
    - Regulatory affairs
    - Engineering,
    - Those responsible for RoHS compliance, testing and/or certification

    In today's environmentally-conscious world, your market access depends on
your ability to demonstrate the RoHS compliance of your product. Over 50% of
all products and components evaluated by Intertek show non-compliance. Even
though your suppliers may have assured you of compliance, it is clear that
many do not meet current regulations. Learn how you can protect your brand and
truly ensure product compliance by attending our FREE webinar on Korea RoHS on
Wednesday, December 12th at 2:00 pm Eastern Time/ 11:00 am Pacific Time.
