June 23, 2009--To educate companies on increasingly stringent worldwide environmental regulations, the TIA has published a series of free white papers that address the latest challenges facing manufacturers and marketers on the four most-regulated continents.

Each paper summarizes the main laws governing product import, distribution, packaging, labeling, and recycling or end-of-life disposition with special attention paid to restricted substances such as lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, and cadmium. The full detail and documents are posted as they emerge on TIA's environmental intelligence analysis service online, EIATRACK.

EIATRACK employs legal firms and technical experts to monitor and analyze regulations related to the RoHS, WEEE, REACH, EuP directives, battery disposal, design for the environment, and energy efficiency for products that contain electronics, cabling, chips, plastics and other materials that are subject to compliance rules.
