Connect to Purchasers Through EPEAT

Electronics brands around the world connect to purchasers through EPEAT.

By registering products on Global Electronics Council’s EPEAT registry, electronics brands make themselves available to public and private institutional purchasers across the globe who use EPEAT to find sustainable IT products and services.

Brands that create sustainable electronics should register them with EPEAT to build their reputation among purchasers and access procurement contracts valued at tens of billions of dollars worldwide.

Register Your Products on EPEAT

Manufacturers who are interested in registering their products with EPEAT must have an officer of the company sign Global Electronics CouncilEPEAT License and Participating Manufacturer Agreement (P26). This contract is required for the brand to begin registering products in EPEAT and have them identified as “EPEAT-Registered Products.” Manufacturers must also complete a Participating Manufacturer Information Form and pay the EPEAT Participating Manufacturer fees for the device categories in which they wish to register products.
The manufacturer then engages one of the certification and testing organizations that make up EPEAT’s global network of Conformity Assurance Bodies (CABs) and pays the appropriate fee for that service. After becoming a Participating Manufacturer, the brand owner will receive credentials to access the Registry and may begin making product declarations. EPEAT Policy Manual for full details about the EPEAT Program.
After completing all the required paperwork, submitting payments and engaging a CAB, manufacturers may login to the online EPEAT system to begin registering products in the appropriate device category. The CAB will carry out a comprehensive “Desk Review” process on the manufacturer’s initial registrations. During this process, the Manufacturer must answer questions about the product declaration(s) and may need to provide evidence consistent with the standard’s Verification Evidence requirements. Desk review may last several days to several months, depending on the Manufacturer’s ability to demonstrate understanding of the system requirements and ability to support the accuracy of their declarations.

When staff are confident that the declaration is sound, the registration(s) will be sent to Global Electronics Councilfor inclusion in the public EPEAT registry. If/when Manufacturers demonstrate their competence at making accurate declarations, they may be granted the ability to register products without prior review and approval. However, a new Desk Review is triggered each time a manufacturer claims a new criterion or registers a product in a new country, and Desk Review can be re-instituted at any time if warranted by nonconformance.

CABs are responsible for ongoing verification of all products registered through their service. All Manufacturers must be prepared at any time to provide verification evidence supporting any criterion claimed in their product registrations in response to a request from CAB staff or contractors.

As soon as EPEAT has received a signed Agreement, all applicable Fees and product listings approved by the CAB, the products in question will appear in the EPEAT Registry.

Verification Plans & Outcome Reports

The Verification Round Index indicates which criteria were investigated in each round from 2009 to present for each product category on the EPEAT Registry. Each tab lists the criteria on the rows and the round on the columns for PCs and Displays, Imaging Equipment, and TVs respectively. This index will be updated on a yearly basis after all annual rounds are launched and/or completed. For Verification Plans and Outcomes Reports prior 2016, please contact us.
