The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has partnered with Compliance & Risks today to launch a newsletter designed to focus on regulations that impact the off-road equipment manufacturing industry and its supply chain.

The monthly newsletter, the Regulated Substances Brief, will focus on Conflict Minerals, EU RoHS (European Union Restriction of Hazardous Substances) and EU Reach (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of Chemical substances) regulations.

The newsletter aims to inform readers about the business risks and opportunities regarding the substances involved in the products they supply.

John Wagner, AEM director of materials management, said: "Expanding the scope of the newsletter to include other major regulations offers our members and their suppliers even greater value as well as the information they said they needed regarding the substances contained in their products."

The initiative is an extension of the existing EU Reach Brief that was launched last year to help AEM members and their supply chain deal with the "complex and ever-evolving" EU Reach legislation. It will also cover emerging developments that could potentially impact AEM members such as China RoHS and Korea Reach.

Joe Skulski, chief executive of Compliance & Risks, added: "The brief is providing essential, valuable information to AEM members and their suppliers managing the impact of these regulations through the supply chain. We are delighted to further develop our relationship with AEM by offering this level of customized guidance on all relevant chemical substances and regulations."
