Prepare to face the coming challenges
The number of export requirements for electrical and electronic products has increased rapidly over the past few years. In addition to the standards concerning the usage of restricted substances, almost every country has developed their own guidelines concerning environmental protection. This is where the need for a holistic and common approach arises. Companies aim to avoid time and cost intensive procedures by using a single comprehensive certifi cation. This is one of the reasons why interest in IECQ QC 080000 is growing daily.
IECQ QC 080000 is based on the international quality management system ISO 9001, and it is classifi ed as a Hazardous Substance Process Management System. It covers the key requirements of the various environmental protection directives such as the EU Directives’, Restriction of use of certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment’ (RoHS), Waste
Electrical and Electronic Equipment’ (WEEE), etc.
The IECQ QC 080000 is designed as a technical specifi cation for certifi cation by a third party, to demostrate that the management system of a company in terms of minimizing, eliminating and simply handling hazardous substances complies with international standards. It emphasizes an overall green process from product development to realisation.
