Okoljska standardizacija električnih in elektronskih proizvodov in sistemov - Standardizacija okoljskih vidikov - Slovar izrazov (IEC 62542:2013)

Ta mednarodni standard zajema splošne izraze in definicije, ki so povezane z okoljsko standardizacijo v okviru IEC. Uporablja se kot terminološki glosar, ki se upošteva pri okoljskih vidikih ustreznega dela v IEC. Izrazi, ki zajemajo okoljske težave, ki so pomembne za elektrotehnične izdelke v vseh življenjskih ciklih izdelka, vključno z, a ne omejeno na, – splošne vidike zasnovne in dobavne verige, – uporabo in deklaracijo materialov, – analitiko okoljsko ustreznih snovi, – vidike varovanja podnebja, – porabo energije in energijsko učinkovitostjo, – okoljske informacije, – obdelavo po preteku uporabnosti. Ta horizontalni standard je namenjen predvsem tehničnim odborom za pripravo standardov v skladu z načeli vodila IEC Guide 108. Ena od pristojnosti tehničnih odborov je, da med pripravo publikacij uporabljajo horizontalne standarde, kadar je to primerno. Vsebina tega horizontalnega standarda se ne uporablja, razen če je izrecno navedena ali zajeta v ustreznih publikacijah.

ENVIRONMENTAL STANDARDIZATION FOR ELECTRICAL

GLOSSARY OF TERMS
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 62542 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 111:

Environmental standardization for electrical and electronic products and systems.

It has the status of a horizontal standard in accordance with IEC Guide 108.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
111/302/FDIS 111/312/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this standard can be found in the report on

voting indicated in the above table.

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

INTRODUCTION

The definitions noted in this International Standard are intended to be considered by all new

and existing IEC standards under maintenance that are meant to fulfil standardization needs,

associated directly or indirectly, with an environmental topic or which may reference

environmental aspects/impacts, even if the standard is not exclusively an environmental one.

In addition this standard aims to utilise and harmonize definitions in other related documents.

This standard will be updated periodically as relevant international standardization documents

evolve.

Wherever possible, the terms and definitions included herein have been taken from other IEC

or ISO deliverables, either verbatim or modified if appropriate so as to make them suitable for

use in a wide range of IEC deliverables on environmental matters. This standard also contains

definitions for terms that are likely to be required by IEC deliverables on environmental

matters, but are not yet described elsewhere.

ENVIRONMENTAL STANDARDIZATION FOR ELECTRICAL
AND ELECTRONIC PRODUCTS AND SYSTEMS –
GLOSSARY OF TERMS
1 Scope

This International Standard specifies generic terms and definitions that are related to

environmental standardization within the IEC. It serves as a glossary of terminology to be

considered for environmental aspects of relevant work in IEC.

The terms cover environmental issues that are relevant for electrotechnical products across

all product life cycle stages, including but not limited to
• design and supply chain aspects in general,
• use and declaration of materials,
• analytics of environmentally relevant substances,
• aspects relating to climate protection,
• power consumption and energy efficiency,
• environmental information,
• end of life treatment.

This horizontal standard is primarily intended for use by technical committees in the

preparation of standards in accordance with the principles laid down in IEC Guide 108.

One of the responsibilities of a technical committee is, wherever applicable, to make use of

horizontal standards in the preparation of its publications. The contents of this horizontal

standard will not apply unless specifically referred to or included in the relevant publications.

2 Normative references

The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and

are indispensable for its application. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For

undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any
