Contrary to popular belief, what you don't know can hurt you. In the case of environmental regulations, manufacturers and suppliers of electronics, medical devices, toys and other products must stay aware of laws affecting all target markets or they could find themselves being slapped with harsh penalties, shut out of their strategic markets and pushed aside by the competition as a result. But the task of keeping up with new laws and regulations around the globe is ever-more daunting, as regions, countries, provinces, states and cities introduce their own measures designed to clean up the environment and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
To educate companies on increasingly stringent worldwide environmental regulations, included are a series of free white papers that address the latest challenges facing manufacturers and marketers on the four most-regulated continents.
Each paper summarizes the main laws governing product import, distribution, packaging, labeling and recycling or end-of-life disposition with special attention paid to restricted substances such as lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium and cadmium.
