NEDA continues successful summit series on RoHS/Lead Free Compliance
Dec 01, 2005
The National Electronic Distributors Association (NEDA) will present an industry summit on January 19th in San Jose to discuss lead free issues: Negotiating the Economic, Legal and Logistic Challenges of RoHS/Lead Free Compliance. This meeting is a follow-up to two successful summits held earlier in the year. The goal is to foster discussion among all segments of the electronic components channel.
Unlike other conferences, the NEDA Industry Summit is a one-of-a-kind chance for all members of the supply chain to actively participate in discussions of this hot topic. The summit will be conducted in a roundtable format and provide ample opportunity to delve into non-technical issues and explore ongoing industry compliance activities throughout the supply chain.
NEDA encourages distributors, manufacturers and customers to attend with your channel partners. A variety of issues will be presented:
-- An update on Europe and China with Mike Kirschner, President of Design Chain Associates
-- Mary Carter-Berrios, Technical Product Manager for KEMET Electronics Corporation, and Arnold Offner, Industry Standards Manager, Phoenix Contact Inc. will provide information on IPC 1752 and Materials Declaration.
-- Customer 411 - What are they doing to prepare? What's still lacking? What do they expect?
-- J.P. Brisson, Senior Associate, Global Environmental Group, Allen-Overy, LLP will provide an update on the Legal Aspects Of RoHS/WEEE
