The electrotechnical industry tracks and discloses specific information about the material composition of its products due to legal and market requirements. In order to obtain this information, the industry must gather information about the composition of products that are purchased from suppliers for incorporation into final products. This affects the entire supply chain worldwide. Many manufacturers have developed material declaration questionnaires (also known as green procurement surveys or supply chain questionnaires) that require suppliers to disclose certain information about the products they sell. The present Guide applies to products that are supplied to manufacturers of electrotechnical products for incorporation (into their products). It covers materials and substances that may be present in the supplied product, including batteries. It does not apply to process chemicals (i.e. chemicals used and consumed during manufacture) unless those process chemicals constitute part of the finished product, nor to packaging.
