EU Market Expansion

In the promotional products industry, there is a high awareness of how national legislation applies to the goods that are both made and sold. But how does compliance translate into expanding your market to include European countries? This presentation by Jennifer Barbarisi and Melanie Schubert is designed to look into the applicable EU legislation for toys and children’s products, common promotional product categories and will include chemical requirements like REACH, including SVHC and RoHS. This session is an elective for the Product Safety Aware program.
