intern

Global Product Compliance (GPC) Group is delighted to announce the internship program 2021 and we will continue to work on regulatory compliance and product-based solutions with our interns.

Background of this Internship

GPC has been organizing internship program in Sweden and Indian since 2020. Our goal is to attract young talents to join us and to achieve the goals for increased protection of health and environment.

Since the early 1990s, EU environmental policymakers have shown growing support for product-based regulations. Discussions have led to the enactment of several regulations such as Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS), Registration Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals (REACH), implicating both electronics Industry and chemical sector. 

More recently, the EU Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability is incorporated as a part of the European Green Deal. The chemical strategy is one of the most important part of the Deal, including goals of phasing out harmful substances form consumer products, substituting substances of concern in all products, and ensure information access on chemical content and its safe use for producers and consumers.  

This internship program would support research in the areas of product-based environmental regulation involving but not limited to trend analysis, impact analysis, comparative analysis of different country regulations, implementation strategy, and stakeholder – roles and responsibilities, compliance strategy, redesign, recycling, risk assessment, challenges, catalyzing strategies, etc.
