The Competence Center for Technical Communication and Information Management will support the organizers as a partner as well as provide an expert contribution to the exciting conference program. 

“In order to fully support our customers in the field of product compliance from a technical as well as legal point of view, we are already working together with reuschlaw Legal Consultants in the form of a consulting cooperation,” says Ludger Bruns, head of the consulting service of gds GmbH. Within the framework of this cooperation, gds provides its expertise in the fields of risk assessment and technical documentation while the consulting company is responsible for the legal aspects. “As a partner of the Product Compliance Dialog event, we will be able to network with other responsible players in order to discuss all of the relevant issues in terms of product compliance and product marking.”

In Dresden, gds will not only be available as an expert, but also hold an informative lecture.
