Arlington, Va. - The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), DigitalEurope, and Japanese Green Procurement Survey Standardization Initiative (JGPSSI) released a guide for the supply-chain disclosure of substances used in packaging for the global sale and distribution of electronic products.
The Joint Industry Guide - Material Composition Declaration for Packaging of Electrotechnical Products - JIG-201 Ed. 1.0 is said to be the first industry materials declaration guide for reporting across the global supply chain on substances contained in materials used to transport and protect electrotechnical products.
