The platform would leverage FF’s expertise and capabilities in product, technology, regulation processes, along with its state-of-the-art manufacturing plant – the FF ieFactory in Hanford. Furthermore, FF’s user ecosystem establishment could also be included as part of this global initiative.

Compliance Updates
