Element, a leader in materials testing and product qualification testing, are delighted to announce their final Product Testing and Compliance Seminar of 2016, taking place on 11 November at the renowned Imperial War Museum Duxford, near Cambridge.
2016 has seen major changes across many EU CE Marking directives, including the replacement of the R&TTE Directive by the new Radio Equipment Directive, representing the biggest change to CE Marking in over 20 years. Manufacturers, authorised representatives, importers and distributors must all ensure that they are up to date with the latest legislation.
This free one-day seminar will cover a full range of insightful sessions to address the most important CE Marking, Radio, EMC and Safety testing changes, as well as taking you through the requirements for international product approval beyond the EU. As with the industry-leading summer conference, Element’s Engaged Experts will share their insights and provide you with a networking opportunity to meet other testing professionals.
