This International Standard specifies generic terms and definitions that are related to environmental standardization within the IEC. It serves as a glossary of terminology to be considered for environmental aspects of relevant work in IEC.
The terms cover environmental issues that are relevant for electrotechnical products across all product life cycle stages, including but not limited to
• design and supply chain aspects in general,
• use and declaration of materials,
• analytics of environmentally relevant substances,
• aspects relating to climate protection,
• power consumption and energy efficiency,
• environmental information,
• end of life treatment.
This horizontal standard is primarily intended for use by technical committees in the preparation of standards in accordance with the principles laid down in IEC Guide 108.
One of the responsibilities of a technical committee is, wherever applicable, to make use of horizontal standards in the preparation of its publications. The contents of this horizontal standard will not apply unless specifically referred to or included in the relevant publications.
