  • Upgraded social responsibility requirements
  • Removal of emissions requirement – allowing for two-pin connectors

The major changes involve the removal of the emissions requirement and an enhancement of the CSR (socially responsible manufacturing) criteria, to be in line with other TCO Certified product categories. Some additional minor updates are also included in the draft and a complete listing can be found in the table below and the draft criteria document, TCO Certified Tablets 2, or on our Development projects page.
