Every Tuesday is Compliance Tuesday!

Product Compliance has become an integral part of the operation for any company involved in retail and trade of non-food consumer goods. It is important that some common language and understanding is established. In order to support you with that we organise keynote sessions about product compliance topics that have impact on your business, the so called Compliance Tuesday keynotes. Access to Compliance Tuesday events are mostly free, reservation is required. Also non ProductIP customers can join.

There is also a large number of paid sessions such as our Risk Assessment Training and specific training around the impact of chemical legislation such as REACH, RoHS, Food Contact Materials and more. All our sessions proof to be popular under product category management, purchasing teams as well as QC teams.

On Compliance Tuesday we also have free online training sessions to get you up to speed with the platform. We have create one hour sessions matching 3 levels of experience in using our platform.

Keep a rhythm in working on product compliance
At the office there is always something more urgent, more important. Make an appointment with yourself to work on product compliance at one of the ProductIP offices in Ede, Hamburg, Hong Kong or Shenzhen. This is possible on every Compliance Tuesday from 13h30 till 17h00 at what we call Compliance Dojo.We have WiFi, coffee, tea, water and most important, as it is Compliance Tuesday it is likely that our experts are in-house as well. So it’s easy to get tips and tricks around regulation and or use of the platform. (Charges may occur on specific questions). All we ask is that you let us know that you are coming !

Why the name Dojo? A dojo is a space of commitment in which people practice together. A dojo is a place of learning where one practices what is being taught. This is different from the conventional classroom where students sit passively taking notes or listening to a lecture. In a place of learning like the dojo students practice what is being taught and over time begin to embody the subject matter.
