Material declaration for products of and for the electrotechnical industry

This document specifies the procedure, content, and form relating to material declarations for
products and accessories of organizations operating in and supplying to the electrotechnical
industry. Process chemicals, emissions during product use and product packaging material
are not in the scope of this document.
The main intended use of this document is to provide data up and down the supply chain that:
• allows organizations to assess products against substance compliance requirements,
• allows organizations to use this information in their environmentally conscious design
process and across all product life cycle phases.
This document specifies mandatory declaration requirements and also provides optional
declaration requirements.
This document does not suggest any specific method or process to capture material
declaration data in the supply chain. However, it provides a data format used to transfer
information within the supply chain. Organizations have the flexibility to determine the most
appropriate method to capture material declaration data without compromising data utility and
quality. This document is intended to allow reporting based on engineering judgement,
supplier material declarations, and/or sampling and testing.

Le principal objectif du présent document est de fournir en amont et en aval de la chaîne logistique d’approvisionnement des données qui: - permettent aux organisations d'évaluer des produits au vu des exigences de conformité des substances, - peuvent être utilisées par les organisations dans le cadre de leur processus d'écoconception et dans toutes les phases du cycle de vie du produit. Le présent document spécifie les exigences obligatoires et facultatives applicables aux déclarations de matières. Le présent document ne propose aucune méthode ou aucun processus spécifique concernant la collecte des données des déclarations de matières dans la chaîne logistique d’approvisionnement. Il fournit toutefois un format de données utilisé pour communiquer les informations au sein de la chaîne logistique d’approvisionnement. Les organisations ont l'entière liberté de déterminer la méthode la plus appropriée de collecte des données des déclarations de matières pourvu que l'utilité et la qualité des données ne soient pas compromises. Il est prévu que le présent document permette l'élaboration de rapports fondés sur un jugement technique, des déclarations de matières de fournisseurs, et/ou des prélèvements et des essais.

MATERIAL DECLARATION FOR PRODUCTS OF
AND FOR THE ELECTROTECHNICAL INDUSTRY
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 62474 has been prepared by IEC Technical Committee 111:

Environmental standardization for electrical and electronic products and systems.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2012. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:
a) The material classes and exemption lists capabilities have been improved.

b) The introduction and scope have new diagrams and information to give a better overview

of the standard and identify what information is mandatory, optional or conditionally

mandatory.

c) Definitions have been added. Minimum requirements to be in conformance with the

IEC 62474 standard are defined, including XML format as the officially accepted format.

By defining an authority, list identity and list version, the standard format could be used

for lists other than the IEC 62474 database.

d) Terms have been aligned for consistency throughout the document. For example, the

“IEC 62474 database” was previously referred to as “IEC 62474 database”, “IEC 62474”,

“IEC 62474 Database”, “IEC 62474 DB”.

e) The annexes have been removed as they are now contained within documents managed

by the validation team 62474 (VT 62474). Annex A (Annex B in the previous edition) is

provided for non-XML users as a reference only.
The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
111/498/FDIS 111/503/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this International Standard can be found in

the report on voting indicated in the above table.

A list of all parts in the IEC 62474 series, published under the general title Material

declaration for products of and for the electrotechnical industry, can be found on the IEC

website.

The committee has decided that the contents of this document will remain unchanged until the

stability date indicated on the IEC website under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data related to

the specific document. At this date, the document will be
• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.

INTRODUCTION

This document benefits the electrotechnical industry by establishing requirements for

reporting of material declaration data, standardizing protocols, and facilitating the transfer and

processing of data. Material declarations are used by the electrotechnical industry to track

and declare specific product information used for compliance and/or environmentally

conscious design (ECD) considerations. To simplify requirements across the supply chain and

to improve economic efficiencies, it is important to standardize the exchange of product,

product part, material and substance data, and provide requirements within material

declarations.

IEC 62474 is made of two parts: this document, which contains requirements for material

declarations and a database containing information such as a declarable substance list (DSL),

exemption list and data exchange format (see Clause 8).

This document defines the two most common types of material declarations and their

requirements:

1) Declaration for compliance – is always at a product level in reference to the list of

declarable substances and declarable substance groups within the IEC 62474 declarable

substance list (DSL).

2) Composition declaration – is the much more detailed product part level reporting down to

individual substances contained within the IEC 62474 DSL.

The IEC 62474 database is maintained by the validation team (VT 62474) which updates

information in the IEC 62474 database based on requirements specified in the IEC 62474

standard (see Clause 8).

By fulfilling the requirements of the IEC 62474 standard and based on the information from

the IEC 62474 database, two types of declaration can be created as shown in Figure 1 below.

• a declaration for compliance which is the information required to determine product

compliance with substance regulations and market needs (see 4.4);

• a composition declaration that is the information required to assess where declarable

substances above threshold are contained in the product (see 4.5).
The transmission of information in the supply chain can be done in two modes:

• Distribution mode: The supplier provides material declaration data about their product(s)

to a recipient.

• Requester/responder mode: The requester determines the type of material declaration(s)

the responder will provide.

Figure 1 – IEC 62474 principles
The IEC 62474 principles are determined in the following clauses:
• Clause 4 specifies requirements for material declarations.

• Clause 5 specifies the criteria and thresholds for declarable substances (DSs), declarable

substance groups (DSGs) and material classes in the IEC 62474 database.
• Clause 6 specifies the criteria for exemption lists in the IEC 62474 database.

• Clause 7 specifies the IEC 62474 database data format and exchange requirements with

further information in Annex A (informative).
• Clause 8 specifies the IEC 62474 database maintenance process.

MATERIAL DECLARATION FOR PRODUCTS OF
AND FOR THE ELECTROTECHNICAL INDUSTRY
1 Scope

This document specifies the procedure, content, and form relating to material declarations for

products and accessories of organizations operating in and supplying to the electrotechnical

industry. Process chemicals, emissions during product use and product packaging material

are not in the scope of this document.

The main intended use of this document is to provide data up and down the supply chain that:

• allows organizations to assess products against substance compliance requirements,

• allows organizations to use this information in their environmentally conscious design

process and across all product life cycle phases.

This document specifies mandatory declaration requirements and also provides optional

declaration requirements.

This document does not suggest any specific method or process to capture material

declaration data in the supply chain. However, it provides a data format used to transfer

information within the supply chain. Organizations have the flexibility to determine the most

appropriate method to capture material declaration data without compromising data utility and

quality. This document is intended to allow reporting based on engineering judgement,

supplier material declarations, and/or sampling and testing.

MATERIAL DECLARATION FOR PRODUCTS OF
AND FOR THE ELECTROTECHNICAL INDUSTRY
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 62474 has been prepared by IEC Technical Committee 111:

Environmental standardization for electrical and electronic products and systems.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2012. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:
a) The material classes and exemption lists capabilities have been improved.

b) The introduction and scope have new diagrams and information to give a better overview

of the standard and identify what information is mandatory, optional or conditionally

mandatory.

c) Definitions have been added. Minimum requirements to be in conformance with the

IEC 62474 standard are defined, including XML format as the officially accepted format.

By defining an authority, list identity and list version, the standard format could be used

for lists other than the IEC 62474 database.

d) Terms have been aligned for consistency throughout the document. For example, the

“IEC 62474 database” was previously referred to as “IEC 62474 database”, “IEC 62474”,

“IEC 62474 Database”, “IEC 62474 DB”.

e) The annexes have been removed as they are now contained within documents managed

by the validation team 62474 (VT 62474). Annex A (Annex B in the previous edition) is

provided for non-XML users as a reference only.
The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
111/498/FDIS 111/503/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this International Standard can be found in

the report on voting indicated in the above table.

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

A list of all parts in the IEC 62474 series, published under the general title Material

declaration for products of and for the electrotechnical industry, can be found on the IEC

website.

The committee has decided that the contents of this document will remain unchanged until the

stability date indicated on the IEC website under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data related to

the specific document. At this date, the document will be
• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.

INTRODUCTION

This document benefits the electrotechnical industry by establishing requirements for

reporting of material declaration data, standardizing protocols, and facilitating the transfer and

processing of data. Material declarations are used by the electrotechnical industry to track

and declare specific product information used for compliance and/or environmentally

conscious design (ECD) considerations. To simplify requirements across the supply chain and

to improve economic efficiencies, it is important to standardize the exchange of product,

product part, material and substance data, and provide requirements within material

declarations.

IEC 62474 is made of two parts: this document, which contains requirements for material

declarations and a database containing information such as a declarable substance list (DSL),

exemption list and data exchange format (see Clause 8).

This document defines the two most common types of material declarations and their

requirements:

1) Declaration for compliance – is always at a product level in reference to the list of

declarable substances and declarable substance groups within the IEC 62474 declarable

substance list (DSL).

2) Composition declaration – is the much more detailed product part level reporting down to

individual substances contained within the IEC 62474 DSL.

The IEC 62474 database is maintained by the validation team (VT 62474) which updates

information in the IEC 62474 database based on requirements specified in the IEC 62474

standard (see Clause 8).

By fulfilling the requirements of the IEC 62474 standard and based on the information from

the IEC 62474 database, two types of declaration can be created as shown in Figure 1 below.

• a declaration for compliance which is the information required to determine product

compliance with substance regulations and market needs (see 4.4);

• a composition declaration that is the information required to assess where declarable

substances above threshold are contained in the product (see 4.5).
The transmission of information in the supply chain can be done in two modes:

• Distribution mode: The supplier provides material declaration data about their product(s)

to a recipient.

• Requester/responder mode: The requester determines the type of material declaration(s)

the responder will provide.

Figure 1 – IEC 62474 principles
The IEC 62474 principles are determined in the following clauses:
• Clause 4 specifies requirements for material declarations.

• Clause 5 specifies the criteria and thresholds for declarable substances (DSs), declarable

substance groups (DSGs) and material classes in the IEC 62474 database.
• Clause 6 specifies the criteria for exemption lists in the IEC 62474 database.

• Clause 7 specifies the IEC 62474 database data format and exchange requirements with

further information in Annex A (informative).
• Clause 8 specifies the IEC 62474 database maintenance process.

MATERIAL DECLARATION FOR PRODUCTS OF
AND FOR THE ELECTROTECHNICAL INDUSTRY
1 Scope

This document specifies the procedure, content, and form relating to material declarations for

products and accessories of organizations operating in and supplying to the electrotechnical

industry. Process chemicals, emissions during product use and product packaging material

are not in the scope of this document.

The main intended use of this document is to provide data up and down the supply chain that:

• allows organizations to assess products against substance compliance requirements,

• allows organizations to use this information in their environmentally conscious design

process and across all product life cycle phases.

This document specifies mandatory declaration requirements and also provides optional

declaration requirements.

This document does not suggest any specific method or process to capture material

declaration data in the supply chain. However, it provides a data format used to transfer

information within the supply chain. Organizations have the flexibility to determine the most

appropriate method to capture material declaration data without compromising data utility and

quality. This document is intended to allow reporting based on engineering judgement,

supplier material declarations, and/or sampling and testing.
