All deal with restricted substances. REACH will be the main driver. In the USA, the EPA is working on a regulation as well (due 2010 or so....)

How about:

REACH, RoHS and restricted substances regulations.

I think it should not be restricted to 'European' only because other 'RoHS' like those from China will be coming into the picture. Then you have other programs like Sony's or the Californian initiatives, etc.

Separate it from ISO 14001 or as a sub-forum of ISO 14001 and name it 'RoHS, REACH and other Environmental, Safety, Health standards'.
YES SIR :)

I like the title suggested by Kees

Great idea guys, in my last two Quality Engineer jobs, I have been wearing the RoHS hat so I know enough to get by.
I think that it would be handy to be able to post any questions on RoHS when someone needs help.

Sorry, I caught this a bit late, but I think it is missing a fundemental regulation. ELV, I mean this was one of the first large scale EU directives (to do with material content of products) and is a massive subject which would include IMDS, which I know has been discussed frequently on these forums.

I really feel the this should be included and that the title should include both "ELV" and "IMDS".

Sorry if I missed something but I could not see an existing forum dedicated to this.

In my organisation we deal with both RoHS and ELV (+IMDS), they come under the same persons responsibility.

Sorry to sound off late on this - but couldn't be combined with the ISO14001 forum...
maybe make it ISO14001, RoHS, REACH and other Environmental, Safety, Health standards?
What is the connection between ISO 14001 & RoHS?

Like "RoHS, REACH, ELV, IMDS and Restricted Substances Related Regulations"?

My understanding is ELV and IMDS are automotive related and hence belong to the TS forum. And that includes GADSL - Global Automotive Declarable Substance List.

Do we now want to put them together with RoHS and others?

That is fine with me.

Ummm difficult, ELV is an INDIRECT requirement of TS, but then it could be argued that RoHS has the same relationship with any electonics manufacturer/importer/distributor that is certified to ISO9001.

I think these issues can easily be discussed as a separate issue in there own right and often are.

The people who often deal with RoHS and ELV are often one in the same (or at least that is my experience), and although they may have knowledge of TS they may not necessarily automatically look in the TS forum.

This is just my view, but I don't see ELV as something that should come under TS. It's very similar to RoHS it just covers different kinds of products. Like I say, it's indirectly referenced by TS as 7.4.1.1 Regulatory Conformity. But then this could cover any number of things dependant upon the organisation.

IMDS and GADSL again are a material reporting based items that although are Automotive specific (for now!!) I feel warrant discussion in a forum of similar nature.

Not a big issue really!

I had two primary considerations - I thought keeping all automotive related subjects/issues together facilitates searches and users. Next, I hate to bother Marc if he needs to hunt down all the ELV/IMDS/GADSL threads currently in the TS forum and moved them over to the new place
