BS EN IEC 62430:2019

Environmentally conscious design (ECD). Principles, requirements and guidance

Status : Current   Published : January 2020



IEC 62430:2019 describes principles, specifies requirements and provides guidance for organizations intending to integrate environmental aspects into the design and development in order to minimize the adverse environmental impacts of their products.

This document applies to processes on how ECD (environmentally conscious design) are integrated into the design and development. This document applies to any organization, regardless of its size, type or sector.

This document does not provide requirements for assessing the conformity of individual products.

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.

IEC 62430:2019 cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2009. This edition constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:

a) Scope is extended from electrotechnical product and systems to all products including services.

b) As a consequence of the scope expansion, non-electrotechnical products, services in particular, are taken into account to modify requirements.

c) Clause 6 is added as a guidance.
