Japan Green (JGPSSI) Services

Intertek offers electronic design, consulting, assessment, and testing services for Japan Green (JGPSSI) compliance.

The Japan Green Procurement Survey Standardization Initiative (JGPSSI) is a voluntary organization established in 2001. The purpose of JGPSSI is to promote the standardization of chemical management practices for electrical and electronic equipment products. The focus has been on establishing a common list of chemicals to be managed, including asbestos and mercury.

Identification and Control of Hazardous Substances
The cornerstone of Japan Green compliance is the identification and control of the hazardous substances in electronics products. Intertek’s experts collect, review, and categorize the required restricted substances for all components of your electronics product. The gathered data meets the requirements of the Joint Industry Guide (JIG), JGPSSI, and evolving IPC standards.  Standard JGPSSI services include:

  • Material declaration for all components
  • Identification of all restricted substances
  • Full component by component audit trail
  • Substitution of non-compliant components
  • Electronic design verification of all chemical data and hazardous substances exemptions
  • Recycling information and materials
  • Data gathering to JGPSSI, Joint Industry Guide (JIG), and evolving IPC standards
  • Intertek works with suppliers to develop compliant programs and products

Information Disclosure
The Japan Green Procurement Survey Standardization Initiative (JGPSSI) has two major information disclosure requirements:

  • Disclosure of the presence of hazardous substances
  • Information on dismantling, recycling, and treatment

  • Data output in XML format to support evolving IPC standards
  • Recycling information roll up
