, the leading provider of testing and certification services for companies entering the global marketplace, has added new East Coast locations to its popular half-day seminar “Challenges of Exporting to the European Union.” The seminar series is taking place at various cities throughout the country this fall.
The informative workshop helps exporters understand the updated Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC)

Upcoming East Coast workshops include:
