Where do Restricted Materials Legislations Come from?
Where did they originate and is there any pattern to them?
On 2 April 2020, Claigan Environmental Inc. (www.claigan.com) will present a webinar on the origins and commonality of global restricted materials legislation. There are so many global restricted materials legislations – RoHS, REACH, POP, Prop 65, Canadian Prohibition, China RoHS, etc. – but is there parallels between them and is there a way to comprehensively manage them all by strategically managing a few? This webinar will cover the range of global restricted materials legislations and discuss their common roots and overlapping substances.
Since RoHS and WEEE were published by the EU in 2002, new restricted materials legislations have been popping up all over the world. With the advent of REACH and the UN Stockholm Convention we are now seeing new waves of restricted materials legislations.
In this webinar, Claigan will discuss the common roots, chemicals, and legislative structures of the various restricted materials legislations including more specialized variations such as California Proposition 65. The purpose of the webinar is to provide the participants with a better understanding of how substances in articles end up being regulated and hopefully develop a better understanding of how to control substances in their products.
The main topics to be covered in this webinar are –
- Principle families of restricted materials legislations
- Electronic waste legislations
- Persistant Organic Pollutants (UN Stockholm Convention)
- Chemical classification
- Restriction and risk management
- Global trends
- Regional differences
- Next substances to be regulated
Due to the interest in these topics, two (2) webinars will be held on April 2 to accommodate a larger audience.
