  • Lead and cadmium in PVC profiles of electric windows and doors

The consultation for the two applications for exemption will be open until Friday, December 9, 2016. Questionnaires to the stakeholders containing targeted questions for the consultation have been drafted for each of the exemption requests and available for each exemption request respectively here

At I-Connect007, we are proud to once again sponsor the STEM Outreach Program at the upcoming IPC APEX EXPO 2020. Another way we support our youth is by sharing the stories of young people who are doing amazing things. Dylan Nguyen is a great student, musician, and creative thinker. Recently, he shared with me the details of his school science fair project, “Kite: Powering the Future,” which solved a problem that he faced.
