Hi, We import most of our product and do some small assembly here on site. The CB raised a minor non conformance that we had not done a lifestyle perspective and we needed to. This was what the CB wrote:
"The organisation has not ensured that requirements that can lead to environmental impacts are considered for each stage of the product lifecycle (cradle to grave approach)
a) Determine procurement requirements based on the environmental impacts identified through the lifecycle assessment and communicate the requirements to external suppliers and contractors, including those that carry out the design and development of the products ensuring they have considered each stage of the product lifecycle (cradle to grave approach)
b) Communicate to the customer potential significant environmental impacts associated with transportation/delivery, use, end-of life treatment and final delivery" So they want to see everything from our head office.
The lifecycle should only be based on what we do here on our accredited site as we have no control over HO design, raw materials etc, am I right in this thinking?
