EU Commission updates ecological criteria for personal computers

The Commission of the European Union (EU) has issued updated ecological criteria for manufacturers of personal computers (PCs) wishing to display the EU’s Ecolabel on their products.

The Commission’s Decision updating the Ecolabel requirements for PCs was published in June 2011 in the Official Journal of European Union.  The new criteria update those originally issued by the Commission in 2005, which were valid through June 2011, and are consistent with those of the U.S. Energy Star program.

The specific EU Ecolabel criteria for PCs, and the requirements for the assessment and verification of compliance with the criteria, are laid out in the Annex to the Commission’s Decision.
