It is becoming more and more difficult to maintain compliance with the laws governing products being imported into or manufactured in the United Kingdom and Europe.

This course will introduce, refresh and update you on the increasing number of environmental directives and specifications that effect consumer products. Increasing your understanding of the continually evolving area of environmental compliance will benefit any from Compliance Managers, Environmental Managers, Electronics Design Engineers, Product Technologists and Quality Assurance personnel of manufacturers, importers and distributors.

The seminar will provide a overview of the Directives and test standards now in force or about to come into force will help reduce confusion and apprehension among those who are involved in certification and approvals of their products. By illustrating what is required of your environmental procedures, you can ensure your company shows real diligence in both protecting themselves and ensuring that products they bring to market are compliant.

The seminar will then consider the implications and opportunities available in going beyond compliance and how this is becoming the foundation of the push towards an eco-friendly world.
