Survey on standards and sustainable development

18 April, 2014

Danish Standards (DS) asks for cooperation on a survey about existing as well as needs for standards that can contribute to sustainable development. Focus is on environmental sustainability within the product, process and management system standards.

Below is a list of standard activities that were anticipated in the beginning of the project:

1) Mandated standards on electrical and electrotechnical equipment (EEE, RoHS) and waste management of these (WEEE)

2) Biofuels – criteria for sustainability

3) Sludge management – management system standard

4) Biocides – standards on management of product groups like toys, paints and laquers etc. where biocides are used

5) Water management system standard – water supply and wastewater management

6) Ecodesign regulation – energy related products

7) Environmental Technology Verification – ISO standard being developed

8) Nanotechnology

 

Any written material is of course very welcome, but as a start DS asks for names and phone numbers on people to call for a short telephone interview.
