Reading time ( words)

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.

Electronica 2022: Happy to Be Back in Munich

11/21/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
As we stepped out of the hotel into the drizzling rain, we were relieved that it wasn’t snow. Looking down the escalator into the U2 platform in Munich’s Hauptbahnhof central station early on the morning of Tuesday, Nov. 15 and observing the mass of humanity pushing and shoving to cram into trains to the exhibition centre, it appeared that a significant proportion of the international electronics industry had gathered to attend electronica 2022, co-located with SEMICON Europa and recognised as the world’s leading trade fair and conference for electronics.
