Are you and your company aware of new legislation coming from the European Union (EU) for electronic products? If you use or manufacture any kind of electronic or electrical equipment, you should be. That's why IPC has announced its "Boot Camp: Lead-Free Requirements for U.S. Electronic Equipment" program, to be held Tuesday, July 26, 2005 at the Radisson Hotel Northbrook in Northbrook, IL. The course will introduce attendees to the global push for lead-free electronics. It will also address which products are slated to be exempt from legislation, the projected costs of lead-free implementation and the effects of this implementation on components, printed circuit boards, and electronics assembly. Attendees will hear about resources and materials declarations for electronic products available to companies who wish to meet lead-free requirements.
