Webinar - Why do products fail RoHS compliance?

Non-compliance for RoHS

OTTAWA, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - On 15 January 2014, Claigan Environmental Inc. (www.claigan.com) will present a webinar on why products fail for RoHS compliance.  Claigan conducts regular testing of products for RoHS compliance and has seen the majority of products fail when tested for RoHS compliance.  These failing products were designed to be RoHS compliant and had supplier declarations of compliance, but still failed in the lab. The webinar will focus on the causes of product compliance failures, high risk materials, design errors, supplier errors, manufacturer errors, purchasing errors, and the weaknesses in supplier declarations.

The material presented in this webinar will leverage data from hundreds of tested products and tens of thousands of measurements. The webinar will present an advanced technical discussion on RoHS compliance failures and is not intended to provide a general overview of RoHS Recast.

Topics covered in this webinar will focus on:

  • Failure rates and general product types
  • Components, materials, and processes causing RoHS failures
  • Supplier error versus design error
  • Processes at high risk for RoHS non-compliance
  • Factory auditing
  • Supplier declarations
  • RoHS technical file and risk mitigation
  • Options and solutions

Due to interest in this topic, two (2) webinars are being held on January 15th to accommodate a larger audience.
