The Japan Green Procurement Survey Standardization Initiative (JGPSSI) is an IT-industry-wide effort to survey and standardize the use of chemicals. The members of JGPSSI work together to reduce the use and dispersion of hazardous chemicals.
JGPSSI, of which I-O DATA is a member, works with its counterpart industry bodies worldwide, including the European Information & Communications Technology Industry Association (EICTA) and the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) in the United States to standardize green purchasing surveys worldwide. This initiative resulted in the official release of JIG.
The Joint Industry Guide for Material Composition Declaration for Electronic Products (Joint Industry Guide or JIG) is a set of standards to be used when surveying suppliers and specifying the chemicals targeted in the survey. The purpose of JIG is to streamline the work of surveying the chemicals included in the products and parts made by electrical and electronic product device makers.
RoHS (Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electric Equipment) is a directive based on EC95 that prohibits in principle the inclusion of any of the six chemicals listed below in electrical devices.
|I-O DATA displays the “Conforms to the RoHS directive” mark on products such as memory products, compact flash cards, LCDs and DVD drives.|
The “Conforms to the RoHS directive” mark is displayed on I-O DATA products that clear the criteria for conforming to the RoHS directive and lead-free composition. I-O DATA products that bear this mark are both lead-free and RoHS-compliant.
