IPC, ITI to Host Conference on Critical and Emerging Environmental Product Requirements

Reading time ( words)

IPC and the Information Technology Industry Council (ITI) will host a virtual conference, “Critical and Emerging Environmental Product Requirements” on June 29 from 11:00 am to 3:30 pm EDT. The event will explore the latest environmental requirements that impact product design, manufacturing, supply chain management, and technology innovation.

Speakers will include leading environmental regulatory experts Paul Tennant, Graeme Vickery and Hermione Mackelworth from the U.K. Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), Madalina Laxton from the European Commission, Directorate-General for the Environment, and Joel Wolf from the ‎U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Tennant and Vickery will provide an update on Brexit and possible environmental regulatory changes resulting from Brexit. Mackelworth will cover U.K. REACH. Laxton will address the latest policy developments on the EU’s RoHS Directive. Wolf will cover risk evaluations and risk management under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).

“New global environmental compliance requirements are emerging and existing requirements seem to be constantly evolving. To ensure adherence to environmental regulations, companies need to continually calibrate their compliance management functions,” said Kelly Scanlon, IPC director of environmental policy and research. “Misunderstanding these ever-changing requirements could have a disastrous impact for business. ITI and IPC’s virtual conference will provide the information compliance professionals and officers need to be up to date with legal, regulatory, and customer requirements.”

“From Brexit to a new administration in the U.S., recent changes to governments are having a real impact on environmental compliance regulations across the globe,” said Chris Cleet, ITI vice president of policy for environment, sustainability, and regulatory. “This conference will give companies a unique opportunity to hear directly from government officials and experts about the current policy landscape and provide critical information and resources compliance professionals need to effectively navigate new regulations and stay ahead of future changes.”

The event is sponsored by The Compliance Map, Benchmark ESG ǀ Gensuite, Total Parts Plus (TPP), and iPoint.

A Show Full of Opportunities

Looking back to my notes from IPC APEX 2020, I noticed one of my comments: There were so many interesting sessions that I often found myself in the position of choosing between several that I wanted to attend in the same timeslot. This year was not any different in that regard. I am purposely glossing over the fact that I, like many of my friends, missed the camaraderie and opportunity to catch up in person while attending these technical sessions, and I look forward to being able to do that next year.
