Standard for Environmental Assessment of Imaging Equipment and Television Working Group (C/SAB/1680.2-.3)

IEEE P1680.2: Standard for Environmental Assessment of Imaging Equipment defines environmental performance requirements for imaging equipment (as defined by the U.S. ENERGY STAR(R) Imaging Equipment Specification1) including copiers, digital duplicators, facsimile machines, multifunction devices, printers, mailing machines, and scanners, relating to reduction or elimination of environmentally sensitive materials, materials selection, design for end of life, life-cycle extension, energy conservation, end-of-life management, corporate performance, packaging, consumables, and indoor air quality.

 

IEEE P1680.3: Standard for Environmental Assessment of Televisions defines environmental performance for televisions, television combination units, and component television units, relating to reduction or elimination of environmentally sensitive materials, materials selection, design for end of life, life-cycle extension, energy conservation, end-of-life management, corporate performance, and packaging. It applies to products that are primarily marketed as televisions, and does not cover computer displays as defined by IEEE 1680.1.

 

These two standards are part of the IEEE 1680™ family of standards that provides a clear and consistent set of performance criteria for the design of electronic products, and provides an opportunity to secure market recognition for efforts to reduce the environmental impact of electronic products. It is intended to provide a tool for government, institutional, corporate, and consumer purchasers. Product manufacturers may use this tool to earn recognition in these markets, recognizing that certain criteria may not be applicable to all types of purchasers.
