IEC 62474 - Material Declaration for Products of and for the Electrotechnical Industry

Welcome to the IEC 62474 database on material declaration

The electrical and electronics industry and its supply chain use material declarations to track and declare specific information about the material composition of its products. To harmonize requirements across the supply chain and to improve economic efficiencies, IEC 62474 provides an International Standard for the exchange of material composition data and provide requirements for material declarations. This International Standard benefits the electrotechnical industry by establishing requirements for reporting of substances and materials, standardizing protocols, and facilitating transfer and processing of data.

This database (IEC 62474 DB) specifies to the electrical and electronics industry and its suppliers:

1. what substances, substance groups and material classes that need to be included in material declarations; and
2. to software developers, specifications on the data format for the exchange of material declaration data.

Please select the ‘ENTER’ button on the top right corner of the window to enter the database. This database is to be used according to the requirements of IEC 62474.


The database is maintained by TC 111: Environmental standardization for electrical and electronic products and systems
