The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), DigitalEurope, and the Japanese Green Procurement Survey Standardization Initiative (JGPSSI) released a guide for the supply chain disclosure of substances used in packaging for the global sale and distribution of electronic products.

The Joint Industry Guide - Material Composition Declaration for Packaging of Electrotechnical Products - JIG-201 Ed. 1.1, is an update to the industry materials declaration guide for reporting the materials used to transport and protect electrotechnical products across the global supply chain. Manufacturers and other purchasers are required to have this data to comply with regulations, meet design specifications, and reach sustainability goals and other objectives.

The guide complements the already-established material composition declaration guide for electrotechnical products called the "Joint Industry Guide" or "JIG 101," and adopts a similar reporting format. JIG-201 Ed. 1.1 sets minimum requirements for material declaration for electrotechnical products, including a list of relevant substances and their reporting thresholds and reportable applications, but also allows companies flexibility to inquire about other substances when necessary for other business needs.

JIG 201 Ed. 1.1 is the result of an interim update process and incorporates the most up-to-date regulatory and market requirements. It also covers the latest substances considered under the European Union's Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical Substances (REACH) regulation.

The JIG 201 Ed. 1.1 guide can be downloaded free of charge:
