Foresite To Host Webinar Focusing On EU REACH Compliance And Changing Industry Disclosure Practices For 2013

Complimentary Webinar will offer Best Practices for Dealing with New Regulatory and Disclosure Obligations Coming Effective in 2013.

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Foresite Software Systems Inc. is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a complimentary webinar, the latest in a series of educational seminars for the manufacturing industry. As of December 2012, the EU REACH regulation SVHC list was expanded to 138 substances that must now be declared to upstream customers and regulators, and the new substance and labeling requirements under the REACH regulation's substance and mixture provisions have now taken effect. These regulatory disclosure obligations will send ripple effects through industry, which will increase with the approach of the June 1, 2013, registration deadline for pre-registered substances being imported into the EU.

In an effort to continue to support industry in managing the ever expanding requirements of environmental regulation, the Foresite webinar will discuss the emerging REACH requirements and the best practices for managing the associated obligations including:

  • An outline and recap of the new obligations under the REACH and CLP regulatory framework.
  • A discussion and briefing concerning the pending impacts REACH will impose on industry in 2013.
  • A briefing concerning how to coordinate building an inventory of full material declarations that can satisfy the disclosure requirements of the REACH regulation.
  • A demonstration of what a functional system of record should look like and how it should be used for compliance purposes.

The webinar will be presented by Travis Miller, Vice President of Regulatory Services and Graham Margetson, President of Sales and Marketing for Foresite Compliance. Travis and Graham are recognized experts in environmental regulatory compliance business processes, and have advised many of the largest blue chip companies on how to develop sound, defensible regulatory compliance processes. Those interested in registering for the free Webinar may do so by visiting www.foresitecloud.com and clicking on the Webinar Tab.

Lance Allison, CEO of Foresite, stated "As this deadline approaches, the ability for manufacturers, distributors and retailers to identify, maintain and disclose the exact substance concentration within product and to maintain clear audit trails featuring source collateral documentation will be critical for compliance. Correspondingly, as the regulation matures, the resulting enforcement measures for non-compliance are anticipated to escalate."

OSIsoft is an early adopter of this system and run with it to expand into the explo...
79% of new products miss their launch date. That was the conclusion of a CGT/Sopheon Survey in which the impact of such market misses were also explored. What it didn't dig into was the reason why so many products and projects miss their launch date. When we start digging into the details with respect to applications, we can find at least one causal factor in the delivery process, specifically that portion which focuses on the actual move into production, from which consumers (internal and...
This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better idea about whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large component makes sense for your project. This post assumes that you...

Security is one the more prominent of the application service categories, likely due to its high profile impact. After all, if security fails, we all hear about it. The entire Internet. Forever.

Choosing between BIG-IP and LineRate isn't as difficult as it seems.... Our recent announcement of the availability of LineRate Point raised the same question over and over: isn't this just a software-version of BIG-IP? How do I know when to choose LineRate Point instead of BIG-IP VE (Virtual Edition)? Aren't they the same?? No, no they aren't. LineRate Point (and really Line Rate Precision, too) is more akin to an app proxy while BIG-IP VE remains, of course, an ADC (Application Delivery ...
