Intertek Update on California's "Green" Regulations

OTTAWA, Dec. 17 /CNW Telbec/ - Intertek (, the leading provider of quality and safety services to a wide range of industries, will present a free one-hour webinar on Tuesday, January 12, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. EST providing an overview of California's current and soon to be implemented health and environmental regulations. This includes changes to Proposition 65, California RoHS, Assembly Bill 1109, Assembly Bill 1124, and many more.

The State of California's health and environmental regulations pose an increased challenge for national retailers, importers, and product manufacturers. The objective of these laws is to restrict, reduce, rectify and enforce actions that threaten the environment and people's health. If you sell products in California today or plan to in the future, your products must comply with California's "green" requirements.

"Many companies in the US and companies importing into the US are facing the challenge of complying with the expanding, complex requirements in the State of California," states Dr. Ruud A. Overbeek, Global Vice President of Intertek Health and Environmental Services. "Customers have requested Intertek to share insights into these requirements and provide compliance options in support of their business."

Join us on January 12, 2010 at 2:00 PM EST for a free 1 hour webinar reviewing California's green product requirements and Intertek's compliance solutions. For more information or to register for this webinar, please visit:
