Title: RoHS Harmonization - Progress Toward a Single Global Standard?
Published: July 13, 2007
Abstract: The lack of global harmonization of RoHS initiatives has been a major headache for the electronics industry, to say the least. A number of organizations have been working very diligently to move standards closer together, with the hope that at some point, there will be one standard � or at least, fewer standards with which to comply. In this presentation, you''ll get a snapshot of current harmonization initiatives and results to date in the effort to achieve RoHS standardization globally.
