BS 8887-2:2009 Design for manufacture, assembly, disassembly and end- of-life processing (MADE). Terms and definitions
BS 8887-2 defines terms used in the design for manufacture, assembly, disassembly and end-of-life processing (MADE).
Standard terminology can help transfer a design concept to manufacture in a way that is most efficient, cost effective and environmentally aware. BS 8887-2 aims to remove any ambiguity surrounding design terminology, thereby reducing possible confusion both to industry and to end users.
Definitions cover a number of terms bought into common industry use as the result of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoH) Regulations 2008 and other legislation.
