IEEE 1680.1 – Revised Ecolabel Standard for Computers and Monitors

The draft for the revised IEEE 1680.1 “Standard for Environmental Assessment of Personal Computer Products, Including Notebook Personal Computers, Desktop Personal Computers, Slate/Tablets, Small Scale Servers, Signage Displays and Personal Computer Monitors” was completed by the Work Group in February 2017 and will be posted for balloting March 28, 2017.

The revised draft expands the scope of the standard to cover tablets and signage displays in addition to computers and monitors.  It also expands the scope of assessment criteria to include corporate social responsibility (CSR) and criteria that reach deep into the supply chain.

Anyone that is interested in voting/commenting on the ballot must register their interest in the IEEE Standards Association (SA) system by no later than Friday, March 24th.
