IECQ QC 080000

Hazardous Substance Process Management

Show your commitment to protect others and the environment

With increasing global focus on commerce and industries’ sustainability efforts, the onus is on businesses to produce environmentally-friendly products. This is particularly the case for the electronics industry where the current production processes of most electronic and electrical products include use of hazardous substances. Regardless of whether these hazardous substances are essential to the functionality of a product or a result of the manufacturing process, the presence of such substances cannot be ignored.

What is IECQ QC 080000?

The IECQ QC 080000 Hazardous Substance Process Management (HSPM) system is based on the international quality management system ISO 9001. It covers the key requirements of the various environmental protection directives such as the Restriction of use of certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE).

The IECQ QC 080000 system seeks to minimise or eliminate the production of the hazardous substances to demonstrate to your customers, employees and shareholders that your organisation is committed to ensuring the sustainability of the environment. The system is structured to complement any existing management systems in place such as ISO 9001.

Why is it important?

Most current manufacturing and production processes are thoroughly examined and evaluated for their use and production of hazardous substances specified for special restriction. With the IECQ QC 080000 certification, not only do you receive a guideline for your business’ path ahead, you commit to ensuring the safety of all staff involved. This includes those on the assembly line, users of your product, and individuals potentially affected through its impact on the environment.
