The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, DIGITALEUROPE, and the Japanese Green Procurement Survey Standardization Initiative (JGPSSI) today announced that the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard IEC 62474 is now the recommended electrotechnical industry’s material declaration standard. The existing Joint Industry Guide (JIG) is several years out of date with global regulations and, consequently, should be considered officially obsolete.
The IEC 62474 standard refers to an associated IEC database, which hosts the IEC 62474 declarable substance list and the electronic data exchange schema. The IEC database is maintained twice a year by the IEC 62474 Validation Team to ensure it is current with changing global electronic industry reporting requirements. The IEC database is accessible free of charge at http://std.iec.ch/iec62474, and the standard is available for purchase at the IEC Webstore.
If you have questions about the IEC 62474 standard or Validation Team, please contact Robert Friedman at [email protected].
For any additional questions, please contact Bill Belt at CEA at 703-907-5249 or [email protected].
CEA leads technology manufacturers in fostering CE industry growth by developing industry standards and technical specifications that enable new products to come to market and encourage interoperability with existing devices.

JEDEC is the leading developer of standards for the solid-state industry. Almost 3,300 participants, appointed by some 295 companies work together in 50 JEDEC committees to meet the needs of every segment of the industry, manufacturers and consumers alike. The publications and standards that they generate are accepted throughout the world. All JEDEC standards are available online, at no charge.
The Japan Green Procurement Survey Standardization Initiative (JGPSSI) was a voluntary organization inaugurated in January 2001 for the purpose of standardizing substances contained in parts and materials of equipment in electrical and electronic products through effective survey methods. In January 2006, JGPSSI implemented the JIG-101 as a guideline for common surveys on the material composition of electric and electronic equipment. Accompanying this, JGPSSI prescribed a survey and response format, released it as the Survey and Response tool (Ver.4) complying with the JIG-101, and has been making efforts to make surveys common since then. However, with the JIG-101 Ed 4.1 being the final edition, future revisions to the chemical substances list is to be carried over into the IEC 62474 international standards, which were published in March 2012. Based on this development, the JGPSSI has dissolved into a new organization VT62474 Japanese mirror committee as of the end of May 2012. The JGPSSI website (http://www.jgpssi.jp) is only available up to the end of March 2014.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
