CSA R7008-2019 pdf free download.Sustainability standard for household dehumidifier appliances.
A. 1.1 This Annex describes the approach used to identify the set of multiple attributes of dehumidifiers (La., characteristics that directly influence their environmental performance) selected for this Standard and developed collaboralively 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 spor or hot buttont analyses influencing product environmental performance.
An area of a prodLct lita that baa sagn,ficant potential tnipact on a gtven environmental social. or econom aspect A hot spot refers to a iilt preas. or phase, along the ide cde ola pucf. kWde there 4 no set quantitative criteria to deterrnane a hot spot. it is generally regarded as contributing more than 5% of the total Wnpact on a given aspect In some wistances. a hot spot might not b represented as a percentage of ftracf dee to lack of data or complexity of the system. In these rnstanc.s, a hot spot can be identified based solly on expeit cipinion
tAn issue of high concern for consuinere when itwnkinp about sustarriabioty and more speclfica about the impact of product ide ctes. Hot buttons (consumer. identified issues) might or might not akgn with hot spots (expesl.rdenMed issues)
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 meaningfLd 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 sustalnability performance of home
appliances by empowenng consumers.
A.1 .3 The most substantive factor driving the 45% weighting of the energy during use attribute, relative to the 83—98% weighting suggested by the hot spot analysis output, was the existence of the US. ENERGY STAR® program. This joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy awards the ENERGY STAR® rating to products that meet defined energy and water use efficiency guidelines. The Task Force’s consensus was that this Standard should not duplicate ENERGY STAR®. 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.
A.1.4 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 life cycle assessment methodology used in the development of this Standard. The weighting of this attribute recognizes that a manufacture?s management of matenals 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 R7008-2019 pdf free download.
