"REACH and RoHS Compliance: Gain a Deeper Understanding" Seminar has been added to ComplianceOnline.com's offering.

SAN JOSE, CA, USA, March 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — ComplianceOnline, the largest GRC advisory network, has officially launched registration for the 2-day virtual seminar 'REACH and RoHS Compliance: Gain a Deeper Understanding’ with Kelly Eisenhardt, Co-Founder and Managing Director at BlueCircle Advisors LLC. The Seminar will be held on March 18-19, 2021 (7:30 AM to 1:30 PM PDT).

This virtual seminar will go into the specifics of the REACH and RoHS regulations, provide case studies and share lessons learned so organizations can benefit from the mistakes of others. It will review the latest on both directives and will draw out key developments and key dates (if applicable) with particular emphasis on requirements for US firms.

REACH and RoHS conformity have banned problematic toxic and environmentally hazardous elements such as lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenylether (PBDE) in quantities not exceeding a maximum of 0.1 percent by mass in products.

Restrictions of the use of certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Registration, Evaluation Authorization and Restriction of Chemical Substances (REACH) are European requirements on chemicals and chemical substances used in products.
REACH is required by the EU for products containing chemical compounds. It is also required by US exporters for all suppliers exporting products to the EU. Even though you may not be an exporter, you may have to still comply with these regulations.

Companies shipping parts or products into Europe must comply with EU REACH and RoHS regulations. EU REACH creates increased risk of product recalls, or bans that must be proactively addressed to ensure continued market access. Products containing harnesses, hydraulic components, rubber or PVC are at a higher risk of containing restricted materials. REACH applies to solvents, fragrances, metals, alloys, pigments, dyes, fertilizers, cosmetics, detergents, polymers, electronic equipment, furniture, textile toys, etc.
