Deklaracija materialov za izdelke elektronske industrije

Ta mednarodni standard določa postopek, vsebino in obliko deklaracij materialov za izdelke podjetij, ki delujejo na področju elektronske industrije in dobave elektronski industriji. Procesne kemikalije in emisije pri uporabi izdelkov ne spadajo v področje uporabe tega mednarodnega standarda. Predvidena uporaba tega mednarodnega standarda je nadaljnjim proizvajalcem zagotavljati podatke, ki: – jim omogočajo vrednotenje izdelkov glede na zahteve po skladnosti na področju omejitve snovi in – jih lahko uporabljajo pri okoljsko ozaveščenem postopku načrtovanja in v vseh fazah življenjskega cikla izdelka. Točka 4 določa zahteve za deklaracije materialov. Točka 5 določa merila za snovi in razrede materialov, ki jih je treba navesti v deklaracijah, iz baze podatkov IEC 62474, ki je povezana s tem standardom. Točka 6 določa zahteve za obliko in izmenjavo podatkov, ki jih je treba vključiti v bazo podatkov IEC 62474. Točka 7 določa postopek rednega posodabljanja in vzdrževanja baze podatkov IEC 62474. Čeprav ta mednarodni standard določa temeljne zahteve, proizvajalcem in dobaviteljem izdelkov omogoča prožnost pri izbiri dodatnih zahtev ali informacij. Ta mednarodni standard ne določa posebne metode za zajem podatkov o sestavi materiala. Organizacije imajo možnost izbire najprimernejše metode za zajem podatkov o sestavi materiala, ki ne ogroža koristnosti in kakovosti podatkov. Ta mednarodni standard je namenjen za poročanje na podlagi presoje inženirjev, deklaracij materialov dobaviteljev ali vzorčenja in preskusov.

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.

INTRODUCTION

The electrotechnical industry tracks and declares specific information about the material

composition of its products for compliance and environmentally conscious design

requirements. The electrotechnical industry needs to gather information about the composition

of products and product parts that are purchased from suppliers for incorporation into their

products. Currently material declarations are driven by individual product manufacturer’s

specifications and there is no internationally accepted standardization. This results in

economic inefficiencies. To simplify requirements across the supply chain and to improve

economic efficiencies, it is necessary to standardize the exchange of material composition

data and provide requirements for material declarations.

This International Standard benefits the electrotechnical industry by establishing requirements

for reporting of substances and materials, standardizing protocols, and facilitating transfer

and processing of data.

62474  IEC:2012 – 7 –
MATERIAL DECLARATION FOR PRODUCTS OF AND FOR
THE ELECTROTECHNICAL INDUSTRY
1 Scope

This International Standard specifies the procedure, content, and form relating to material

declarations for products of companies operating in and supplying the electrotechnical

industry. Process chemicals and emissions during product use are not in the scope of this

International Standard.

The main intended use of this International Standard is to provide data to downstream

manufacturers that:

• allows them to assess products against substance restriction compliance requirements

• they can use in their environmentally conscious design process and across all product

life cycle phases
Clause 4 specifies requirements for a material declaration.

Clause 5 specifies the criteria for declarable substances and material classes in the

IEC 62474 database associated with this standard.

Clause 6 specifies the data format and exchange requirements to be included in the

IEC 62474 database.

Clause 7 specifies the process to regularly update and maintain the IEC 62474 database.

Although this International Standard specifies base requirements, it offers flexibility to product

manufacturers and suppliers in the selection of additional requirements or information.

This International Standard does not provide any specific method to capture material

composition data. Organizations have the flexibility to determine the most appropriate method

to capture material composition data without compromising data utility and quality. This

International Standard is intended to allow reporting based on engineering judgment, supplier

material declarations, or on sampling and testing.
2 Normative references

team evaluates proposals and votes, using the normal database procedure, on items on behalf of their National

Committees. The validation team reports to the technical committee or subcommittee.

Note 2 to entry The described procedure asks for very short response times from the validation team members.

For this reason, the National Committees should appoint one or more deputies that can take over the task when the

designated person, for any reason, is absent (travel, business, etc.).
Note 3 to entry It is up to the National Com
