L'IEC 62430:2019 décrit les principes, spécifie les exigences et fournit des recommandations aux organismes qui envisagent d'intégrer les aspects environnementaux dès la conception et le développement afin de réduire le plus possible les impacts environnementaux négatifs de ces produits. Le présent document s'applique aux processus employés pour l'intégration de l'écoconception (ECD) aux étapes de conception et de développement. Le présent document s'applique à tout organisme, de tout secteur, taille ou type. Le présent document ne fournit aucune exigence pour l'évaluation de la conformité des produits individuels. La présente norme horizontale est avant tout destinée à être utilisée par les comités d'études dans le cadre de l'élaboration de normes conformément aux principes établis dans le Guide IEC 108. L'une des responsabilités d'un comité d'études consiste, le cas échéant, à utiliser les normes horizontales dans le cadre de l'élaboration de ses publications. Le contenu de la présente norme horizontale s'appliquera seulement s'il sert spécifiquement de référence ou est intégré dans les publications correspondantes. L'IEC 62430:2019 annule et remplace la première édition parue en 2009. Cette édition constitue une révision technique.

INTERNATIONAL ELECTROTECHNICAL COMMISSION
____________
ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS DESIGN –
PRINCIPLES, REQUIREMENTS AND GUIDANCE
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 62430 has been prepared by IEC Technical Committee 111:

Environmental standardization for electrical and electronic products and systems, and

ISO Technical Committee 207: Environmental management.
It is published as a double logo standard.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2009. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

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

edition:

Scope is extended from electrotechnical product and systems to all products including

services.

As a consequence of the scope expansion, non-electrotechnical products, services in

particular, are taken into account to modify requirements.
Clause 6 is added as a guidance.

INTRODUCTION

The main purpose of this document is to set requirements and give guidance on how an

organization can integrate environmentally conscious design (ECD) into their design and

development. It is not a product standard and so does not describe requirements that apply to

individual products, or a series of products.

This document uses the term ECD but other terminology used worldwide with the same meaning

includes ecodesign, design for environment (DFE), green design and environmentally

sustainable design.

This document covers physical goods, services, and a combination of the two, all of which are

referred to as ‘products’.

ECD is not a separate activity; it is rather an integral part of an organization’s existing design

and development. While this is not a management system standard, its requirements regarding

ECD can be incorporated into an organization’s existing management system, such as created

to support conformance with ISO 14001 and ISO 9001.

NOTE ISO 14001 links management of an organization's processes with environmental impacts, but it does not

specify requirements for the management processes associated with design and development. Therefore, this ECD

standard can be an addition for organizations which have ISO 14001 in place, as ISO 14001 does not specify how to

incorporate ECD into products. ISO 14006 provides guidance on how to incorporate ECD into an environmental

management system, however, it does not specify how to apply ECD.

Every product has environmental impacts, and these can occur during all stages of its life cycle.

These impacts can range from slight to significant; they may be short-term or long-term; and

they may occur at the local, national, regional or global level (or a combination thereof).

In order to minimize these impacts, it is essential to implement ECD within design and

development. ECD is a systematic approach to achieve reduction of these adverse impacts of

a product throughout its entire life cycle.

Multiple benefits can be achieved for the organization, its customers, and other stakeholders

by applying ECD, such as an overall environmental improvement, a cost reduction, and better

marketability.

This document is intended for those, directly and indirectly, involved in the implementation of

ECD into the design and development.

This document does not preclude sectors from generating their own ECD specific standards or

guidance. However, where such documents are produced, the authors are encouraged to use

this document as a reference to ensure consistency across areas of various products and supply

chains.
