Mandatory reporting requirements for regulations like REACH, RoHS and Conflict Minerals have resulted in increased focus on product and environment safety, and ethical sourcing requirements. Thus, it is essential for companies to understand and comply with laws, standards and limits to successfully operate in the complex global markets. The ever increasing list of monitored substances creates intense pressure on organizations as well as their suppliers and importers. Organizations have to continually keep track of substances, chemicals, minerals being used in their products to evaluate it against the relevant set regulations. To meet these challenges, organizations need to establish a definitive strategy to support responsible sourcing and ensure compliance.
Managing these regulations and standards with the right strategy and by adopting best practices, organizations can improve risk management and supply chain management.
In this webinar our experts will present and discuss
