iNEMI will hold an open discussion to identify key areas of concern and potential projects around two gaps identified in the iNEMI Sustainable Electronics Technical Plan:
- Lack of harmonization in global materials regulations impacting the electronics manufacturing supply chain
- Inefficiency in material data collection and reporting
These two gaps, and likely any projects to work on them, are intertwined, and a larger audience is needed to discuss these gaps. Several activities/potential projects have been discussed, including:
- Review the existing and known future global materials regulations and de facto regulations and the reporting required by each, such as (but not limited to) REACH, EPEAT, “Conflict Minerals” and the various RoHS regulations around the world.
- Can best practices in reporting be collected or developed and then adopted by industry and/or regulators?
- How is data for external reporting best collected today, both internally by organizations and externally via online databases — e.g., European Chemicals Agency’s (ECHA’s) SCIP (substances of concern in products) database.
The webinar will be led by Julio Vargas (IBM) and Kelly Scanlon (IPC) and is open to members and non-members. Advance registration is required (see link below).
