Global Industry Approves Revision of Supply Chain Communication Guide on Declarable Substance Content in Electrotechnical Products
Arlington, VA – 05/22/2012 – JIG 101 Ed. 4.1 is the result of an interim update process and incorporates the most up-to-date regulatory and market requirements. It also covers the latest substances considered under the European Union’s Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical Substances (REACH) regulation.
JIG 101 Ed 4.1 will be the final version of the Joint Industry Guide
. The new international IEC 62474 Standard will take over from the JIG 101 to become the electrotechnical industry’s material declaration standard going forward and will become the vehicle for maintenance of the declarable substance list. The IEC 62474 International Standard provides for the electronic exchange of material composition data and also provides requirements for material declarations. The IEC 62474 standard was published on March 22, 2012 and is available for purchase at the IEC Webstore
. The declarable substance list and electronic data exchange schema are available free of charge at http://std.iec.ch/iec62474

The Japan Green Procurement Survey Standardization Initiative (JGPSSI) is a voluntary organization inaugurated in January 2001 for the purpose of standardizing substances contained in parts and materials of equipment in electrical and electronic products through effective survey methods. As of April 2012, JGPSSI is represented by 47 companies and 1 association ranging from those in the material industry to manufacturers of parts and final products. Since 2010, JGPSSI has been proposing “recommended format Ver.4.1” that specifies survey items in accordance with JIG-101 Ed 3.1 and JGPSSI will revise the formats aligned with JIG-101 Ed 4.1 as the tool Ver.4.20.
