IPC and the Information Technology Industry Council (ITI) will host a virtual conference, “Critical and Emerging Environmental Product Requirements” on June 7 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. EDT. The event will explore the latest environmental requirements that impact product design, manufacturing, supply chain management, and technology innovation.
Speakers include leading environmental regulatory experts Liz Moorman from the U.K. Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA); Peter Alcock from the U.K. Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS); Ana Corado and Tala Henry from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); and Kevin Wolfe from Intel.
Alcock and Moorman will cover U.K. Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) regulations. Corado will present on Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) risk evaluations and risk management. Henry will cover EPA’s actions to address to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and Wolfe will discuss industry collaboration on PFAS.
“Existing chemical and product requirements are evolving and, in addition, we see newly emerging requirements. Combined, these make it difficult to stay ahead of what is needed in terms of compliance,” said Kelly Scanlon, IPC director of environmental policy and research. “Misunderstanding these ever-changing requirements could have a disastrous impact for business. ITI and IPC’s virtual conference will provide the information compliance professionals and officers need to be up to date with legal, regulatory, and customer requirements.”
“Environmental compliance regulations across the globe continue to evolve,” said Chris Cleet, ITI vice president of policy, environment and sustainability. “This conference will give companies a unique opportunity to hear directly from government officials and experts about the current policy landscape and provide critical information and resources compliance professionals need to effectively navigate new regulations and stay ahead of future changes.”
The event is sponsored by The Compliance Map, Orbis Compliance, GreenSoft Technology, Inc., Source Intelligence, and S&P Global Engineering Solutions.
