APC urges International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) to limit use of toxic chemicals in electronics production

JOHANNESBURG 24 April 2008 (Natalie Brown for APCNews)

APC is supporting environmentalists’ calls to the South African National Committee of the IEC to vote against Clause 7 of IEC Standard 62368. Clause 7 requires that large amounts of fire retardant chemicals be used in electronics production, despite the lack of reliable fire data showing a need for such chemicals. If passed, this clause will make it even more difficult and dangerous to recycle electronic waste, or e-waste, and may pose serious health risks to consumers.
