EPEAT provides Conformity Guidance Materials, available for download by CABs and Participating Manufacturers as guidance to help navigate the verification requirements of EPEAT criteria. Conformity Guidance Materials undergo updates periodically. To keep stakeholders informed of these updates, EPEAT maintains the Conformity Guidance Materials History spreadsheet, which contains updates and versions for each criterion for each product category.
