Webinar Description

By some estimates the Internet of Things will be comprised of over 26 Billion devices by the year 2020. A large part of these wireless wonders will be attached to people. Wearables are growing at a fast clip, from the first “Smart Watches” to Bluetooth-enabled bandages. And it won’t just because we’ll be pining like Theodore Twombly for his operating system love interest. Devices will sense our location, provide ever more sophisticated health monitoring and reporting and keep us connected in more ways than we may realize.

This webinar will focus on regulatory aspects facing wearable device manufacturers. The global market for these devices is expected to reach into the billions. EMC, Safety, Environmental factors will need to be considered for product developers and distributors.

In this webinar we will examine the following aspects of wearable devices:

  • EMC
  • Radio Spectrum
  • RF Hazards
  • ROHS and Recycling requirements
  • Labeling & Language
  • Testing requirement
