It’s now time to make sure that all your certificates are upgraded to TCO Certified, generation 8. On December 4, 2020 all certificates connected to the previous generation of TCO Certified will expire.

A new generation of TCO Certified is released every three years. When a new generation is launched, products can no longer be certified to the previous generation. However, existing certificates remain valid for their regular term — two years from the date of issue. The last day that products could be certified according to the previous generation of TCO Certified was December 3, 2018. These certificates will expire in December this year.

The generation of TCO Certified that will be discontinued has different names depending on product category:

  • TCO Certified Displays 7
  • TCO Certified Notebooks 5
  • TCO Certified Tablets 3
  • TCO Certified Smartphones 2
  • TCO Certified Desktops 5
  • TCO Certified All-in-one PCs 3
  • TCO Certified Projectors 2
  • TCO Certified Headsets 3

Products may no longer be promoted as certified according to TCO Certified once the certificate expires. To upgrade your certificates, contact one of our approved verifiers which will guide you through the process.
