SCV Product Safety Engineering Chapter
Speaker: Ken Kapur, regulatory compliance engineer
Time: Optional networking and Dinner at 5:15 PM; Presentation at 7:00 PM
Cost: none (except for your own dinner)
Place: Dinner at Honba Sushi, 2587 North 1st St, San Jose; talk at Underwriters Laboratories Inc., 455 E. Trimble Rd., San Jose

During this talk, we will take a trip around the world, touching upon famous destinations that you may want to visit for a family vacation.? However, the focus of this talk will be on specific product regulations that a business would have to deal with when shipping to those locations.? Starting with our local area, you will hear about electrical safety standards, then we will expand out to California for the Green Chemistry Initiative and then cover USA NRTL and FDA requirements.
Traveling to Europe, we will talk about CE Marking as the passport to entry and then review the latest changes in European Safety & Environmental Directives.? We will be covering the trends for enforcement at customs on product certification (e.g. China, Korea, France) and the impact of signing the CE Declaration of Conformity.? You will hear about new and emerging requirements in the Americas, Asia, Africa and the BRIC countries as the world becomes a flatter place.
This will be an interesting, lively, and interactive presentation as we cover some specific safety, environmental, and chemical regulatory updates, best practices and what may impact you.? Safe travels!
