Reference EN 62075:2012
Title Audio/video, information and communication technology equipment - Environmentally conscious design
Project Number 23485
Abstract/Scope IEC 62075:2012 applies to all audio/video, information and communication technology equipment marketed as final products, hereafter referred to as products. Although this standard does not explicitly apply to individual components and subassemblies to be incorporated into final products, component manufacturers also should consider this standard, to enable manufacturers using such components to meet the requirements herein. Only the intended use of products as defined by the manufacturer is within the scope of this standard. This standard specifies requirements and recommendations for the design of environmentally sound products regarding: - life cycle thinking aspects, - material efficiency, - energy efficiency, - consumables and batteries, - chemical and noise emissions, - end of life, - hazardous substances/preparations, - and product packaging. This standard covers only criteria directly related to the environmental performance of the product. Criteria such as safety, ergonomics and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) are outside the scope of this standard and covered by other standards. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2008. It is primarily an editorial revision that adds information related to the modifications noted in certain definitions and updating of regulation references. Keywords: Audio/Video, Environmental Aspects, Life Cycle
