New Seminar — Product Compliance in Europe – CE Marking Requirements

If you do busi­ness in the Euro­pean Union, you know that CE mark­ing prod­ucts for sale in the EU and EEC coun­tries is required. These require­ments change as the leg­is­la­tion and stan­dards are updat­ed, mak­ing the CE Mark­ing task a chal­leng­ing one.

GlobalNorm GmbHCom­pli­ance InSight Con­sult­ing has part­nered with Glob­al­Norm GmbH and the Cana­di­an Ger­man Cham­ber of Com­merce to present a sem­i­nar on the cur­rent CE Mark­ing require­ments and how those require­ments com­pare with North Amer­i­can con­for­mi­ty assess­ment require­ments.

The sem­i­nar will be held on 4-Feb-11 at the Cana­di­an Ger­man Cham­ber of Com­merce in Toron­to. The event will run from 8:45 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Tick­ets include lunch and a morn­ing break.
