Work is now progressing to develop the next generation set of criteria and test methods for TCO Certified. Our thanks to those of you who have contributed with comments and expertise so far.

Currently we are evaluating all feedback and specific criteria proposals as well as setting test methods and verification methodology for each. Our primary goal is to create a set of criteria that helps solve current, relevant sustainability challenges for both industry and organizations that purchase certified products. We are also working to ensure that the certification system is as efficient and straightforward as possible.

In March we will release an official draft version for comment. At that time we will be scheduling several opportunities for you to contribute your comments to our team, both online and in person.
