Hazardous chemicals in hardware products – a practical approach to compliance
Our foundation training course teaches delegates how to comply with RoHS2 and REACH and delves into future developments.
The RoHS Directive (2011/65/EU) and the REACH Regulation (EC No. 1907/2006) cover diverse requirements from substance restrictions to CE marking, provision of information to customers and safe use of chemicals. Essential requirements for manufacturers and importers of goods include gaining and verifying the data from the supply chain as well as handling issues with the same substance and managing obsolescence.
Our course covers key compliance and technical issues critical to ensuring smooth business operation from the legal obligations of both pieces of legislation to future developments which could affect conformity.
RoHS compliance covered includes conformity assessment approaches, supplier assessment and compliance using EN 50581; REACH compliance covered includes Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs), restrictions and the authorisation of chemicals.
