Companies selling electrical and electronic goods in the European Union must conform to the EU legislation for electrical and electronic equipment. The two most important directives, WEEE and RoHS, impose obligations and outcomes that EU Member States must achieve. However, neither directive dictates how the Member States must fulfill their obligations. Therefore, when exporting to Europe, U.S. exporters need to be mindful that national rules for implementing each directive will differ from country to country. WEEE and RoHS Directives are complex pieces of legislation that apply to a similar range of products.
This webinar will focus on current issues and actions under RoHS that could impact U.S. industry exporting to the EU. Although this is NOT an introduction to RoHS, companies new to the legislation may want to participate to learn about these current issues and ask questions about other resources that can provide a broader overview of the legislation. In addition, this will be an excellent update in preparation for the next scope review of RoHS due in 2021.
Companies participating in the webinar will hear from experts from EPPA, a specialist management consultancy that helps clients manage alignment between business and EU institutions and government, and the U.S. Commercial Service at the U.S. Mission to the EU. Companies will:
• Learn about current issues that could impact their exports to the EU.
• Gain insights on changes to RoHS.
• Have an opportunity to provide feedback on these issues, and address your company’s questions and interests directly with our speakers.
