New alliance expands UL’s portfolio of sustainability service offerings to better serve the needs of greener electronics manufacturers
MARIETTA, Ga. May 24, 2012
UL’s new alliance with EPEAT represents the evolution of the EPEAT system from one in which both verification and registration are managed centrally to a pilot system in which third-party organizations serve as Product Registration Entities, or PREs, to help manufacturers register their products to a central registry. The EPEAT certification model requires that products be evaluated against environmental performance criteria and that, following registration into the EPEAT system, the products are regularly monitored. UL Environment is one of only four organizations in the world selected to collaborate with EPEAT in this capacity.
