Coatings, Surface Treatment Specifications, and responding to regulatory changes
On November 7, Guest speaker Keith Legg from Rowan Technology will discuss the rapid increase in regulation impacting coatings use worldwide, and the work his team undertakes for Government and industry to meet the challenges this rapidly-changing situation presents.
Granta will demonstrate the use of coatings data, developed with Rowan Technology, to anticipate and respond to such challenges. These form part of the ongoing developments to Granta's resources supporting strategic decision-making about coatings, taking full account of complex performance, compliance, regulatory, and risk factors.
The web seminar will demonstrate these tools and provide an opportunity to ask questions of the presenters.

- A presentation based on the experiences of Rowan Technology, including their work with the US Department of Defense, the aerospace and defense supply chain, multinational companies, and US companies exporting to Europe. This includes helping organizations understand the regulations, anticipate their effects, and identify and implement the best alternatives.
- Demonstrations of the GRANTA MI:Restricted Substances solution,
including the newly updated Coatings Data Module, which allows you to answer questions such as:
- How do I assess the impact of restrictions on the use of Surface Treatment Specifications (STS)
- How do I control my designers selection of STS to avoid non compliance and other business risks?
- How do I check compliance, and assess risk of exposure to forthcoming regulation on early stage product designs in CAD?
Managers, designers, and engineers from materials engineering or similar functions will see how leading enterprises benefit from best practice materials data management. You will see how this technology can help your organization to comply with restricted substance regulations such as REACH, with particular reference to Coatings.
Managers with responsibility for environmental compliance, product stewardship, environmental health and safety, or REACH will learn about the importance of materials and process information in regulatory compliance, and see how building consideration of restricted substance issues into the design process is a low-cost, high-impact way to reduce the risks of non-compliance and materials obsolescence.
Senior managers with responsibility for product development and engineering will see how proven materials information technology can help you to manage risk and make better strategic decisions about your use of materials and coatings.
