On the 1st June 2017 new legislation will be enacted which will have a significant impact on the materials, processes and coatings which can be used in aerospace manufacturing. How can you be sure that you will be compliant on time? What will this mean for you? What licenses and concessions apply? What new materials are available to be used as substitutes? Attend the WEAF REACH event to learn more about the issues involved so that you can ensure that your plans are in place.
