Today’s corporations are faced with many challenges when it comes to designing, manufacturing, and distributing their products around the world. With over 10,300 environmental regulations globally, limited budget and resources, companies need to focus on the regulations that cover the broadest territory and encompass the strictest standards. In order to prevent stop shipments, fines, and fees, companies must align key regulatory requirements with programs throughout the supply chain.
Why Should You Attend?
The European Union and the United States are leading the world in product regulations focused on environmental compliance and ethical sourcing. Compliance is mandatory in order to continue manufacturing, shipping, and selling products in Europe and the U.S. It is required that companies comply with the use laws and limits for each material, along with documenting the appropriate due diligence, and completing the mandatory government reporting requirements.
