SGS to Host Webinar on Global Chemical Requirements for Electricals & Electronics

SGS, the
world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, is
pleased to be hosting two sessions of this live webinar on July 8, 2021, “Interpretation
of Multinational RoHS Directives and International Type Approval (ITA) Service”.

Restriction of hazardous Substances (RoHS) has its
roots in the European Union (EU) from 2003. The goal of RoHS is to reduce the
environmental effects and health impact of electrical and electronic products by
stipulating regulations to control the levels of certain hazardous substances
and chemicals they contain.

The legislation’s primary purpose is to make
electronics manufacturing safer at every stage of a device’s life cycle. Based
on the EU’s RoHS, many countries have now implemented their own version of the
RoHS, adding complexity for manufacturers.

Aimed at
manufacturers and suppliers of electrical and electronic products, this one-hour
webinar will cover key markets’ RoHS directives including the EU, China, EAEU,
UAE. Arthur Zhao, SGS Tech Supervisor who is responsible for RoHS, FCMs, POPs,
CP65 and China GB standards testing and compliance at SGS, will also explain
how ITA can help manufacturers adapt and implement manufacturing practices and
processes so they are better aligned with the regulations, for improved
efficiency and to ensure compliance.
