The meeting will cover the following topics:
Compliance requirements of China’s RoHS
The differences between the EU RoHS and China’s RoHS
Mandatory pre-market testing and certification requirements
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys.
