Intertek educates manufacturers on Hazardous Substance Process Management



    Enables manufacturers of electronic and electrical products to more
    easily demonstrate compliance with hazardous-substance laws and
    regulations

    BOXBOROUGH, MA, April 6 /CNW Telbec/ - Intertek (ITRK.L), a leading
global provider of quality and safety solutions, announces the availability of
an informative video and whitepaper to educate electrical and electronics
manufacturers on Hazardous Substance Process Management (HSPM), as introduced
in the QC 080000 specification.
    Industry publication Quality Digest has partnered with Intertek to
produce the second segment of its year-long video series on HSPM. Quality
Digest interviewed manufacturers, regulators, and government agencies at a
joint California Department of Toxic Substances Control and Intertek
symposium, "Greening of Electronics in a Global Economy," which took place in
February at the California EPA Headquarters in Sacramento, California. In the
video, available today at www.qualitydigest.com, industry leaders and
government enforcement agencies discuss the importance of HSPM and explain why
a standardized compliance process is "a step up" in support of hazardous
substance compliance.
    Intertek has released a new whitepaper complementing the video segment
titled What You Need to Know About QC 080000. This whitepaper provides a
concise overview of the QC 080000 specification for Hazardous Substance
Process Management Systems, including the history and purpose of QC 080000,
the process of third-party certification, and how the specification
corresponds with ISO 9001. What You Need to Know About QC 080000 may be
downloaded at www.intertek-sc.com/qc080000.
    "Electrical and electronics manufacturers must implement a solution to
effectively manage hazardous substances, in response to continually emerging
government regulations and customer demands," said Calin Moldovean, Intertek's
President of Auditing and Systems Certification. "QC 080000 provides a
foundation for the comprehensive, systematic, and transparent control of HSPM
processes, from product design to end-of-life."
