IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission), the international standards and conformity assessment body for all electrical, electronic and related technologies, voted on 3rd March 2016 approval of the joint JEDEC/ECA standard JS709B IEC/PAS 63015/Ed1: ‘Definition of “Low-Halogen” For Electronic Products’ as a Public Available Specification’.

In addition, there is an approved new work item (ANW) IEC 63031 Ed. 1.0 “Definition of Low Halogen Materials used in Electronic and Electrical Products” which will lead to a new IEC standard, for which the first committee draft is expected for 2016-09 and will cover all materials used in electrical equipment, thus harmonising existing standards for certain sectors such as the JEDEC definition of “low-halogen” for electronics JS709B or TC20 for cables.
