As part of the TCO Certified, generation 8 development process, we have evaluated the role of TCO Certified Edge. Following this evaluation, we have decided to launch a new generation of TCO Certified Edge in 2020. Until then, brand owners can apply for certification to the existing generation of criteria.
TCO Certified Edge is a supplemental certification to TCO Certified, intended for best in class products meeting leading edge sustainability criteria. The intention of the program is to further push the boundaries and recognize those products that are leading the way.
The current generation of TCO Certified Edge will remain until 2020, when we will launch the next generation. During the third and fourth quarter of 2018, we will begin the criteria development process and a draft version of the new TCO Certified Edge will be released in 2019.
