Guidance on the environmentally conscious design of fibre optics related products and subsystems
|Publication Date:||1 February 2013|

Scope and objective
This Technical Report, reiterates all the key normative "shall" texts included in IEC 62430 that specify requirements and procedures to integrate environmental aspects into the design and development processes of electrical and electronic products, including combinations of products, and the materials and components of which they are composed. This report also conveys information on the experiences and best practices of environmental consciousness of fibre optics related products and subsystems.
The objectives of this report are to
- help fibre optic industries reduce negative environmental impacts of the equipment and subsystems throughout the lifecycle (design, manufacturing, use, recycling, and disposal),
- raise awareness of IEC 62430 and other standards among fibre optic industries, particularly its mandatory requirements,
- share industry information to cooperatively increase the level of environmental consciousness of fibre optic industries.
