WEEE & RoHS Directives Training

Organization(s) Toxics Use Reduction Institute
Project Description Complying with the European Union WEEE and RoHS Directives is essential for any company that supplies to original equipment manufacturers selling in Europe. TURI will host a training session on December 7, 2006 in Norwood, Massachusetts to help companies achieve compliance with RoHS and to learn strategies to deal with the various compliance schemes associated with WEEE. This workshop will also provide an update on similar regulatory efforts in other countries as well as in various U.S. States.

TURI demonstration site hosts, Vicor in Andover, MA and M/A-COM in Lowell, MA, are opening their doors to help companies address the challenges of the European Union Restriction on the use of certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) in electrical and electronic equipment.

Companies are invited to learn more at these upcoming events:

-Vicor transitioned its product line to offer both RoHS-compliant and non-RoHS compliant products to meet all commercial and military customer specifications on May 3, 2006 or May 16, 2006, 7:30AM-12:00PM.

-M/A-COM converted to lead-free solder and replaced hexavalent chromium coatings using state-of-the-art R&D and product management on May 24, 2006 or June 6, 2006, 8:00AM-12:30PM.
