Episode Description

Today we introduce two people who have done extraordinary things to protect us from toxic and counterfeit materials. Dennis Bradley will discuss the Hazardous Substance Process Management standard that revolutionized the way industry approaches manufacturing to meet restrictions as mandated by the EU (RoHS) and some US states. He will identify early adopters of the IECQ Hazardous Substance Management Certification and describe the benefits to those companies and their customers. Phil Zulueta, SAE G19 Counterfeit Avoidance Committee Chairman, will explain why these standards and related international certification programs are needed to protect our safety. Phil will discuss the development of the standards and their implementation in the marketplace and the value that the standards and programs provide nationally and internationally. Stan Salot, your host, will explore how these programs are tied together through the US Hazardous Substance Free and Counterfeit Avoidance Mark Alliances.

We tell our children to wash their hands routinely, clean the kitchen and bathroom thoroughly (since they tend to harbor the most germs), and buy eco-friendly cleaners to protect our planet. But, despite our best efforts, hazardous and counterfeit materials are still slipping into our homes and environment. While you may know the basics of shopping for safe and environmentally friendly products, including the brands to look for, it is still easy to miss products that pose health risks. In fact, some hazardous materials, albeit small amounts, are allowed in the products we buy: musical birthday cards, earrings, light bulbs, hair bands and brushes, school supplies, and even electronic and non-electronic toys. Do you know that chemicals in common household products can be everywhere, from plastics to packaging to your garden hose?
