Electronics components board adopts environmental regulatory tracking service

The Electronics Components Certification Board announces that it will use EIATRACK as a quality assurance tool in its Hazardous Substances Process Management (HSPM) Green Manufacturing Certification Program.


Arlington, VA – According to the Telecommunications Industry Association, The Electronics Components Certification Board (ECCB) will use EIATRACK, the Telecommunications Industry Association's (TIA) environmental regulatory tracking service, as a quality assurance tool in its Hazardous Substances Process Management (HSPM) Green Manufacturing Certification Program.
ECCB, as the U.S. management arm of the International Electrotechnical Commission Quality Assessment System (IECQ), certifies through a network of certifying bodies (CBs) that manufacturers are in compliance with USA Standard EIA/ECCB 954 and IECQ's HSPM specification. This certification assures that a company's production processes and electronic components represent the highest standards of quality and Hazardous Substance-free characteristics. ECCB plans to promote EIATRACK to manufacturers as an additional vital tool for managing the ongoing process of remaining compliant. The manufacturers and the CBs themselves will be able to take advantage of the TIA member discount on EIATRACK annual subscriptions.
"EIATRACK has been designed with user input to give electronics companies a tool to cost-effectively manage their compliance with environmental regulations globally," said TIA President Grant Seiffert. "EIATRACK provides information manufacturers can use to meet ECCB certification for HSPM."
EIATRACK is a subscription-based Web service that delivers regulatory updates, detailed analyses and reports, Webinars and news for more than 100 global jurisdictions, including each of the United States.
TIA, which owns and manages EIATRACK, employs highly-respected legal firms and technical experts to monitor and analyze regulations related to the RoHS, WEEE, REACH, EuP Directives, battery recycling, design for the environment, energy efficiency and more, for products that contain electronics, cabling, chips, plastics and other materials that are subject to compliance rules.
