On 3 September 2017, the IEC 62474 Declarable Substances List was updated to version D14.00:
The reference substance name “Lead hydrocarbonate” was replaced by “Trilead bis(carbonate) dihydroxide” and the duplicate reference substance “Lead (II) carbonate basic” (same CAS, different name) was deleted.
The electrical and electronics industry and its supply chain use material declarations to track and declare specific information about the material composition of its products. To harmonise requirements across the supply chain and to improve economic efficiencies, IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) 62474 provides an International Standard (having been adopted as a national standard in Europe, China and several other countries worldwide) for the exchange of material composition data and provides requirements for material declarations. This International Standard benefits the electrotechnical industry by establishing requirements for reporting of substances and materials, standardising protocols, and facilitating transfer and processing of data. IEC 62474 will officially replace the JIG-101 guide that the industry has been using for over seven years. The Declarable Substances List specifies which substances, substance groups and material classes need to be included in material declarations.
