Webinar – RoHS in 2019
Time: 10am and 2pm EST
Duration: 1 hour plus Q&A
Claigan Environmental Inc. will present a webinar on the new RoHS restrictions coming into effect in the EU and China in 2019.  This webinar will discuss, in practical terms – the new restrictions (EU RoHS and China RoHS), scope, compliance outputs, compliance methods, and enforcement
On March 15 2018, the first China RoHS catalog (“Announcement No. 15 of 2018 of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People’s Republic of China”) was published adding EU RoHS-like restrictions to eleven (11) categories of electronic products starting in March of 2019. This is the first time that material restrictions have been added to China RoHS. Since the original China RoHS in 2005, the legislation has allowed for future restrictions, but until 2019 – the requirements were only a hazardous substance table and label.
In July 22 2019, EU RoHS (under Directive 2015/863/EU) will expand the number of covered restricted substances for the first time since its inception in 2002.  Four (4) low molecular weight phthalates (DEHP, BBP, DBP, and DIBP) are being adding to the substances restrictions. Unlike the previous RoHS version, data for the new RoHS restrictions is not as readily available, and updated compliance strategies need to be employed. This webinar will discuss the requirements, outputs, and compliance options for the new RoHS substances.
Due to the anticipated interest in this topic, two (2) webinars are being held on April 4 to accommodate a larger audience.
