This class covers the upcoming changes to the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) regulations, and the impact these changes will have on your product's design and the changes you will need to make to your processes in order to comply. We look at strategies you can employ to surmount the challenges these regulations pose to the compliance of your products. We also examine a checklist of requirements you can measure your suppliers against to determine their risk of non-compliance with REACH and RoHS.
