INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS ON ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE
IEC/TC111 - Environmental standardization for electrical and electronic products and systems
The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) created technical committee TC111 in 2004 to address to develop internationally recognized standards to assist manufacturers in complying with emerging environmental legislation of Electronic Equipment. The use of harmonized standards reduces uncertainty and risk for international trade and use of a global supply chain.
The TC111 work program includes development of international standards or specifications under the following work program:
IEC/TR 62476: Guidance for evaluation of product with respect to substance-use restrictions in electrical and electronic products
IEC PAS 62596: Determination of restricted substances - Sampling procedure - Guidelines
IEC 62430: Environmentally Conscious Design
IEC 62321: Test Methods of Six Hazardous Substances
IEC 62474: Materials Declaration
IEC/TR 62635: Guidelines for end-of-life information provided by manufacturers and recyclers and for recyclability rate calculation of electrical and electronic equipment
IEC/TR 62725: Analysis of quantification methodologies of greenhouse gas emissions for electrical and electronic products and systems
Standard in Development
IEC 62542: Standardization of environmental aspects - Glossary of terms
IEC/TR 62726: Quantification Methodology of greenhouse gas emission (CO2e) reductions for electrical and electronic products and systems from the project baseline
IEC/TR 62824: Guidance on consideration and evaluation on material efficiency of electrical and electronic products in environmentally conscious design
ISO IEC/JTC1/SC39 Sustainability for and by Information Technology
SC39 was created in 2012 and has the scope "Standardization related to the intersection of resource efficiency and IT which supports environmentally and economically viable development, application, operation and management aspects."
Current standards that are in development are focused on environmental performance of data centers and other Information Technology Equipment.
