Do you know ISO 9001 (quality), ISO 14001 (environment), or ISO 450001 (health & safety) management systems? Maybe your organization already follows any of those ISO standards. Just like QC 080000, these management systems share the same Deming wheel and the PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) approach for continuous improvement. QC 080000 follows the ISO 9001 steps.
In a nutshell, QC 080000 is the internationally well-recognized tool used for Hazardous Substance Process Management (HSPM) scheme. The HSPM QC 08000 requirements include:
QC 080000 is one of the many standards issued by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission), such as IEC 63000. QC 080000' title is Hazardous Substance Process Management (HSPM) System Requirements.
The IECQ (International Electrotechnical Commission Quality Assessment System for Electronic Components) makes sure production facilities and products meet QC 08000 via annual audits and emission of certificates.
If your HSPM scheme passes the audit, your company can be IECQ QC 080000 certified. IECQ will publish your certificate online on its certification database.
You can build an internal QC 080000 management system that will help you to demonstrate due diligence and risk assessment for hazardous substances control in manufactured electrical and electronic equipment (EEE).
With the HSPM QC 080000 scheme, you have the best tool to manage:
ISO 14001 is very broad as it targets any environmental aspects of your organization's activities, products, and services. Unlike ISO 14001, QC 080000 is more specific. QC 080000 focuses on the management of restricted substances in EEE.
Both systems can be imbricated since they share the same processes. Indeed, QC 080000 can be interrelated with the ISO 140001 and specifically manage the environmental aspects linked with hazardous substance impacts in manufactured devices. QC 08000 also helps you take into account the product lifecycle requirements of ISO 140001.
QC 08000 will enable your organization to:
ISO 19011 is an international guideline for a robust auditing program. Auditors should decide to follow it.
Auditors conduct annual audits of every production plant. They will perform independent researches of evidence that the QC 080000 system is in place and works. Audited documents include:
