The International Aerospace Environmental Group is preparing a global declarable substance list to be used voluntarily by aerospace product manufacturers.
The group says this list will help those in the supply chain know more about the chemicals and materials used to manufacture the equipment. This will result in increased efficiency, lowered costs and improved health benefits.
"Around the world, regulation is increasing on the use of certain materials in aerospace products,” IAEG's Christer Hellstrand said in a statement. “Working at a global, industry-wide level, we’ve identified the various materials and substances that are relevant for reporting throughout the supply chain, and we’ve created a voluntary standardized approach for this purpose.”
The group is also working on a standard method of reporting greenhouse gas emissions. - Jon Ross
