San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 16, 2006
Design Chain Associates, LLC and EPTAC Corporation announce the availability for sale of the 448-slide deck used for the one-day workshop presented across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. This tome provides extensive and up-to-date information, insights, solutions, and links to source material that will help any company comply with the European Union’s Restrictions on the use of certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directives. The material covers not only what you need to know today but also the big picture of where Environmental Compliance is headed and what you need to do today to make sure you are prepared for the future. Legislation in China, Japan, and the United States are presented in detail.
Unlike most workshops that key on a single topic, leaving out the other 80%, this covers the entire impacted business spectrum including supply chain, design, manufacturing, sales, field service, and brand image.
Ken Stanvick of DCA and Leo Lambert of EPTAC (also General Chairman of the IPC Assembly & Joining Committee), who developed, presented, and are maintaining this material, have received rave reviews from attendees of the most recent series of seminars, including:
· "Thank you very much for answering my questions, and giving me the tools that I need to complete my part complying with RoHS/WEEE directive. This seminar helped me a lot."
· “Fantastic seminar!”
· “I found the course material nearly overwhelming in breadth, but pleasingly replete in depth. I must read through it all again to make sure I am not missing something. Well done!”
· “A great seminar; very informative”

· “VERY EYE-OPENING, DID NOT REALIZE HOW MUCH NEEDS TO BE DONE”
