ENERGY STAR ® Program Requirements for Computers Partner Commitments Commitments The following are the terms of the ENERGY STAR Partnership Agreement as it pertains to the manufacturing of ENERGY STAR qualified computers. The ENERGY STAR Partner must adhere to the following program requirements: comply with current ENERGY STAR Eligibility Criteria, defining the performance criteria that must be met for use of the ENERGY STAR certification mark on computers and specifying the testing criteria for computers. EPA may, at its discretion, conduct tests on products that are referred to as ENERGY STAR qualified. These products may be obtained on the open market, or voluntarily supplied by Partner at EPA’s request; comply with current ENERGY STAR Identity Guidelines, describing how the ENERGY STAR marks and name may be used. Partner is responsible for adhering to these guidelines and for ensuring that its authorized representatives, such as advertising agencies, dealers, and distributors, are also in compliance; work with resellers of Partner’s products to help ensure that these products remain in compliance with ENERGY STAR requirements. Any party within the distribution channel of an ENERGY STAR qualified computer product that alters the power profile of a product after its date of manufacture through hardware or software modifications must ensure that the product continues to meet the ENERGY STAR requirements before delivering this product to the end customer. If the product no longer meets the requirements, it may not bear the ENERGY STAR mark; qualify at least one ENERGY STAR computer model within one year of activating the computers portion of the agreement. When Partner qualifies the product, it must meet the specification (e.g., Tier 1 or 2) in effect at that time; provide clear and consistent labeling of ENERGY STAR qualified computers. The ENERGY STAR mark must be clearly displayed: 1. On the top or front of the product. Labeling on the top or front of the product may be permanent or temporary. All temporary labeling must be affixed to the top or front of the product with an adhesive or cling-type application; Electronic Labeling Option: Manufacturers have the option of using an alternative electronic labeling approach in place of this product labeling requirement, as long it meets the following requirements:
