As the world focuses more and more on sustainability, the ability to create environmentally friendly products is becoming increasingly important. TÜV Rheinland provides you with the opportunity to increase your lead in this area with our IECQ HSPM QC 080000 services.
Based on ISO 9001, the IECQ HSPM QC 080000 system applies process management to integrate and manage hazardous substances – to minimize or eliminate the production of those hazardous substances, satisfying the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive, the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directive, and customer requirements. The advantages in implementing the system include:
With our IECQ HSPM QC 080000 services, you can:
Based on valid ISO 9001 certification, to apply for IECQ HSPM QC 080000 certification, the following steps are required:
Each facility is requested to submit the documents prior to the on-site audit:
Waiting for the report with a reply of corrective action report for the issuing nonconformity report (when non-conformity report(s) is or are issued)
In case major non-conformities have been established during the audit, the company being audited has to initiate corrective actions. The implementation and effectiveness of those actions is verified in an on-site audit. The results of this re-audit will also be reported in IECQ HSPM QC 080000.
Reporting and Registration with IECQ HSPM QC 080000
After the audit and submission of the corrective action report, the audit-related document or report will be reviewed by a certifier from an authorized certification body and later by an ECCB reviewer.
Issuing of Certificates
A notice of issuing certificate is sent by IECQ HSPM to the authorized CB. The certificate can then be prepared online and printed out (one certificate with only one site can be printed).
Repeat Audit after 3 Years
Registration with IECQ HSPM QC 080000 certification is valid for a period of three years. To continue certification, a periodical on-site surveillance audit needs to be conducted.
IECQ HSPM QC 080000 is the Hazardous Substance Process Management standard developed by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) from the Quality Assessment System for Electronic Components (IECQ), an internationally recognized environmentally friendly product norm. The former version was EIA/ECCB 954.
This system has already emerged as an international standard, similar to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 norms.
