The Chinese Ministry of Information and Information Technology (MIIT) has approved a proposed revision of SJ/T 11364-2006 "Marking for the Control of Pollution caused by Electronic Information Products".  The revised standard is to be SJ/T 11364-2014 and re-titled "Marking for the Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Products".

 

The major changes are:

 

Changing the title to reflect a wider scope.

Addition of requirements for logistics procedures and digital labelling.

Adjustments to terminology and definitions (equipment, hazardous substances and logistics)

Deletion of requirements for labelling packaging materials.
