EHS International Compliance & Regulatory Committee

International Compliance and Regulatory Committee (ICRC) North America

Mission and Scope

The SEMI International Compliance and Regulatory Committee (ICRC) is a volunteer committee working collaboratively on important EHS issues. ICRC members identify industry needs, share information, and create tools to assist the industry in attaining EHS and other regulatory objectives. We do this from a perspective of semiconductor equipment and materials, PV, FPD, and nanotechnology suppliers to the industry. In partnership with device makers, we monitor and anticipate industry EHS needs.

The value of the ICRC includes:

  • Learning about new regulations and standards relevant to your business quickly
  • Solving common problems with better solutions from group effort
  • Eliminating duplication of resources at individual companies
  • Speaking with one voice on issues relevant to the whole industry

Organization

ICRC activities are managed by two member co-chairs, supported by a SEMI staff member. Current co-chairs of the ICRC are:

  • Sunny Rai, Global Semiconductor Safety Services
  • Mark Frankfurth, Cymer Corporation

Membership

Committee membership is open to employees of SEMI corporate members.

In addition, employees of device-manufacturing companies; chairs / leaders of SEMI regional committees and working groups; and others serving the semiconductor industry with expertise in EHS fields, and in EHS compliance and regulatory issues may be invited by the ICRC’s co-chairs to participate in committee activities.

Meetings

All members are expected to attend meetings on a regular basis and to contribute information to the group. The value of the ICRC comes from participation by all members.
