Ecma International is an industry association founded in 1961 and dedicated to the standardization of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Consumer Electronics (CE). The ECMA-370 Ec Declaration Standard specifies environmental attributes and measurement methods for ICT and CE products according to known regulations, standards, guidelines and currently accepted practices. The Standard is also applicable to products used as subassemblies, components, accessories and/or optional parts. The standard addresses company programs and product related attributes, not the manufacturing processes and logistic aspects. Although the declarations as defined in Annex A and B are optimized for application in the European Union, this Standard is intended for global use.
