RoHS and REACH in 2014: Planning for Restricted Market Access

Complimentary Webinar, Thursday, March 6, 2014,
8:00am-9:00am PDT (11:00am-12:00pm EDT, 4:00pm-5:00pm GMT)

The European Union's RoHS and REACH regulations were at the advent of the global substance control directive movement. These regulatory regimes drove a fundamental shift in the way businesses conceptualized product stewardship compliance. The related European regulatory model deploys a structured phase-in approach that is exemplified by both RoHS and REACH. This phased-in approach follows a typical pattern: (1) announcement; (2) consultation; (3) deployment; (4) assessment; and finally (5) enforcement.

Following that pattern, both RoHS and REACH are simultaneously existing assessment stages and are also deploying new provisions associated with the law. Specifically, RoHS is expanding scope to include new industries; while REACH is promulgating a new structured roadmap to advise industry on how rapid expansion of the SVHC and Authorization lists will proceed. Consequently, enforcement and a dedicated effort toward enforcing the provisions of the law will become the next inevitable focus of the respective regulatory authorities.
