CSA R7007-2018 pdf free download.Sustainability standard for household microwave oven appllances.
Al .1 This Annex describes the approach used to identity the set of multiple attributes of room air conditioners (I.e., characteristics that directly influence their environmental performance) selected for this Standard developed collaboratively by the AHAM, CSA Group, and UL. These attributes, which form the basis for the core requirements of this Standard, were developed using life cycle assessment (LCA) information along with other key factors such as hot spar or hot buttont analyses influencing product environmental performance.
tHat buttons – an issue of high concern for consumers when thãilung about sustainabdity and move specific&ty atout the impact of product We cycles. Hot buttons (consumei identified issues) might or might not align with hot spots (expert identified issues).
‘Hot spot — an area of a product We cycle that has significant potential impact on a given environmental, social, or economic aspect
A hot spot refers to a unit process, or phase. along the liFe cycle of a product MWe there is no set quantitative criteria to deterrn.ne
a hot spot, it is generally regarded as contributing more than 5% of the total Impact on a given aspect. In some instances, a hot spot
might not be represented as a pev-centage of impact due to tack ol data or complexity of the system In these Instances, a hot spot
cen be identified based soieiy on expen opinion.
A.1.2 The Task Force working with AHAM, CSA Group, and UL opted to utilize non-technical considerations and professional judgment. Collectively this approach seeks to balance scientific rigor with concerns of consumers and other stakeholders in order to achieve the goals of this Standard as follows:
a) to provide meaningful environmental performance information about products to consumers, which will then drive the development of home appliances with improved environmental
performance; and
b) to drive innovation and continual improvement in the sustainability performance of home
appliances by empowering consumers.
A.1 .3 The most substantive factor driving the 27% weighting of the energy during use attribute, relative to the 83 98% weighting suggested by the hot spot analysis output, was the fact that so much of a microwave oven’s energy consumption is dependent upon consumer use patterns, Furthermore, the lack of an energy standard precluded the adoption of an objective, generally accepted benchmark. Since energy efficiency has continually improved, the contributions of other attributes (e.g., materials, manufacturing and operations, and end-of-life) have increased in relative importance. Allocating weight to these other attributes gives manufacturers an incentive to improve environmental performance in ways that are not otherwise recognized through existing programs.
Al .4 Most notably, the management of materials of concern (e.g.. chlorine, flame retardants in plastics, etc.) was allocated more significant weight than what was suggested by the results of the LCA methodology used in the development of this Standard. The weighting of this attribute recognizes that a manufacturer’s management of materials of concern in its products is indicative of its approach to multiple issues, including awareness of consumer “hot buttons”, a proactive approach to consumer safety, and control over incoming quality of materials incorporated into the final product, as well as regulatory diligence and foresight.CSA R7007-2018 pdf free download.
