David Burton, Project Director of B2B Compliance, has been invited to present a paper at the November Edif ERA Conference taking place at the Hilton London Heathrow Airport. The conference subjects cover:
- Responsible sourcing (conflict minerals)
- Substance restrictions and related issues (RoHS2 Directive and REACH plus US and China developments)
- Ecodesign, energy efficiency, resource sustainability and the circular economy
- End-of-life and illegal waste (under WEEE2 Directive)
- Export controls
- Market surveillance
David Burton will be focusing on the major changes within the 2013 Regulations – in particular the impact of ‘Dual Use’ on B2B producers, the need to prepare for the widening of scope in 2019 and will argue against the reduction in categories. His views on meeting the collection targets through the use of ‘substantiated estimates’ shows the way forward for the UK to meet ever more stringent EU targets.
