To continue balancing the credibility of EPEAT with the reality of ongoing global impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, in December 2021 GEC authorized the EPEAT Program to issue new temporary conformity assurance modifications. The modifications took effect on January 1, 2022, and are based on stakeholder outreach and consultation that was undertaken in Q4 2021.
GEC is committed to publishing an EPEAT Program Monthly Transparency Report to enable all EPEAT Program stakeholders to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact Participating Manufacturers and to communicate how the temporary COVID-related conformity assurance modifications are being used by Participating Manufacturers.
The EPEAT Program Monthly Transparency Report for August 2022 is now available and summarizes the use of COVID policy modifications by all active EPEAT Participating Manufacturers from August 1, 2022, to August 31, 2022. The next monthly report will be released in October 2022.
