 Speech Abstract:

 Regulatory Compliance in a High Tech Environment-Implications of RoHS, COP21, & WSC2020 on  semiconductor manufacture

Meeting statutory compliance requirements is an evolving, challenging and resource-hungry exercise for everyone throughout the supply chain.

This paper analyses Edwards’ approach to RoHS and REACH from the perspective of a supplier of vacuum and gas abatement equipment to the semiconductor industry.

The second part of the paper reviews how the pre-emptive actions of the WSC on behalf of the semiconductor industry have achieved significant reductions in the emissions of PFC (perflourinated compounds) by 2010, are stretching the targets for 2020, and how there is still a performance “gap” in terms of global CF4 atmospheric emissions.
