OTTAWA, Dec. 7, 2016 /CNW/ - On 14 December 2016, Claigan Environmental Inc. (www.claigan.com) will present a webinar on a number of legislations that are not as well known but are likely to be business affecting. This webinar will mainly cover a range of new restricted materials regulations (EU POP, Canada Prohibition, Australia Asbestos, and Brazil Environmental Conscious Design) that are causing product recalls, withdrawal from market, shipment stoppage, or are otherwise business affecting.
A fundamental axiom of restricted materials compliance is 'the regulations you are most likely to be non-compliant for are the ones that you did not know about'. Many companies focus their restricted materials compliance efforts on RoHS and REACH SVHC. However, in practice, companies are just as likely to experience a product recall for EU POP Regulation or stop shipment for Australia Asbestos, than for RoHS or REACH SVHC. This webinar will discuss the regulations, their requirements, and present examples of recent enforcement.
Regulations to be discussed in this webinar:
- EU Persistent Organic Pollutants (POP) Regulation
- Canada Prohibition of Certain Toxic Substances Regulations
- Australia Asbestos Regulation
- Brazil (Requirements for environmentally conscious design) - Medical Devices
Due to the anticipated interest in this topic, three (3) webinars are being held on December 14 to accommodate a larger audience and global time zones including Asia.
