chemical labels - blog

Head south next week to join your peers in Nashville, Tennessee, for the 2019 Heavy Equipment and Automotive Suppliers Product Chemical Compliance Summit.

Free for both AIAG members and non-members, plan to join us on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 25–26, 2019, for an event about Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) regulations, business impacts, and industry-wide cooperative efforts to address the challenges when these substances are found in products. 

This 1-1/2 day summit, targeting manufacturers and distributers, will discuss expanding global legislation, varying customer compliance requirements, and internal best practices.

We’ve gathered known experts in the business to talk about full material disclosure (FMD) and how addressing regulatory challenges such as REACH, RoHS, California Prop 65 allows for risk assessment of potential supply disruptions due to extreme weather, critical mineral shortages, or geopolitical aspects along with material substitutions necessary because of substance bans.

There will also be group discussions on IMDS as well as CDX, the commercial version currently piloted by the heavy equipment industry.
