The IPC/JEDEC J-STD-709, currently titled, Limits for Bromine and Chlorine in Flame Retardants and Polyvinyl Chloride in "Low Halogen" Electronic Products, is a document developed by a consortium of companies who paid to initiate a project through HDPUG
There are quite a few programs including individual OEM driven programs, IPC task groups, HDPUG

and chair of the GECI Network.
