TE has integrated its worldwide processes and activities to reduce environmental impact through the lifecycle of our products in a Product Environmental Compliance Management System. The management system is based on the IEC QC080000 industrial standard and integrated with key TE business processes. This system is a supplement to the TE Global Quality Management System framework, and supports the TE Global Product Environmental Compliance Policy.
TE actively participates in industry associations and standards organizations around the world, such as iNEMI, TechAmerica, and China RoHS Standard Working Groups, to provide input to the development of standards and regulations which address management and control of hazardous substances. TE also supports initiatives to develop an industry standard data exchange format and platform for product environmental compliance information. We believe that by adopting standards, industry can significantly lower the administrative burden of the multiple data exchanges needed throughout the supply chain.
