JIG-101 Ed 2.0 was Released
No. 25/ 2009
The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, DIGITALEUROPE and Japanese Green Procurement Survey Standardization Initiative (JGPSSI) announced the release of the “Joint Industry Guide - Material Composition Declaration for Electro technical Products - JIG-101 Ed. 2.0”, an industry materials declaration guide that facilitates reporting of material content information across the global electro technical supply chain.
JIG- 101 Ed. 2.0 now addresses the most updated regulatory requirements that require supply chain disclosure of material content in electro technical products. A key law that is now incorporated in the JIG is the European Union’s Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical Substances (“REACH”) Regulation. Particularly, JIG now supports the supply chain and consumer communication obliged by REACH Article 33 and the preparation for notification according to REACH article 7.2. JIG-101 Ed. 2.0 also establishes a generic screening methodology to identify those substances addressed by the REACH regulation that are relevant for the electro technical industry supply chain disclosure.
Regulatory updates triggered the revision of JIG declarable substance list: Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases, Formaldehyde, Perchlorates, Perfluorooctanesulfonate, Phenol, 2-（2H-benzotriazol-2-yl）-4,6-bis（1,1-dimethylethyl）, have been added, and some threshold levels have been adapted. Three criteria now determine if substances shall be declared. These revised criteria replace the former criteria for level A and level B disclosure. The criteria have been revised to act more proactively and with a broad industry consensus. All declarable substances appear in single list. This JIG declarable substance list records also the rationale for inclusion (criteria 1 - R (Regulated), criteria 2 – A (For Assessment Only), criteria 3 – I (For Information Only)).
