Using IEEE 1680, the umbrella sustainability Standard for the Environmental Assessment of Electronic Products,EPEAT considers several categories of environmental performance criteria, such as materials selection, chemical emissions and end-of-life management, to name a few. As an EPEAT Product Registration Entity (PRE), UL Environment can evaluate and verify the full range of environmental criteria and assist with EPEAT registration for comprehensive, streamlined assessment and registration of green electronics.

Benefits

UL Environment is one of the few organizations in the world selected as a PRE for EPEAT. As a PRE, UL Environment assists manufacturers with registering their products to the central EPEAT registry. UL Environment offers a full scope of services, including readiness assessment, testing and certification to the IEEE suite of standards, and can also provide opportunities for manufacturers to achieve additional points within the standard.

The U.S. federal government spends more than $350 billion (USD) each year on a wide variety of Environmentally Preferable Products (EPP) and services. Achieving EPEAT registration allows a product manufacturer to present its products as meeting EPP criteria and becoming eligible for federal purchasing.
