ACEA - Securing the credibility of IEC publications
"If you develop standards containing test methods or test provisions, then this webinar is for you.

Did you know that the way you design test provisions to assess performance and other aspects of products can have a consequence on the use of energy and other product inputs and, as a result, have an impact on the environment? Did you know that performance and safety test provisions can have an indirect impact on the environment and, therefore, can be considered to be environmentally-relevant test provisions? Are you curious to hear how performance test provisions such as “dust removal” or “dish-washing” could have an impact on the environment and, if ill designed, lead to non-credible environmentally test provisions? Are your sure the test provisions in your standards are environmentally credible? To be sure, do not miss this webinar!

In this webinar we will explore the concepts of real-life representativeness and (anti-)circumvention, in addition to the classic measurement principles of repeatability, reproducibility and accuracy, as well as cost. We will also address how the timely maintenance and updating of standards in line with technology advancements, and changes in use cases, are key to avoid ill-formulated environmental claims and to avoid the possibility for circumvention. Together these topics form the basis for assessing the credibility of standards that contain environmentally-relevant test provisions – this is the subject of a new ACEA Guide currently under development and for which we welcome your comments.
