TCO Displays 5.0: The fifth TCO standard for displays. In comparison with the earlier TCO standards for displays the TCO Displays 5.0 has both more and tougher requirements on environmental aspects. Also the requirements on visual ergonomics have been expanded to cover modern displays. This standard represents one of the toughest certifications for displays worldwide. Displays certified according to this standard are indeed designed for both the users and the planet. Some displays are specially designed for media content such as moving images and photo editing. To ensure high visual performance of these media displays there are some extra requirements which might be used to verify this. If these and all other requirements are met the product has shown compliance to TCO Displays 5.0 (media). If all except the media requirements are met the product fulfils TCO Displays 5.0.

TCO'06 MEDIA DISPLAYS: A modified and expanded variation of TCO'03 Displays.
The labeling is intended, primarily, for multifunctional displays that are used for displaying moving pictures in, for example, surveillance or for displaying moving graphics but it is even intended for simple TV apparatus, primarily of the LCD-type.
The requirements in TCO'06 Media Displays build on the requirements in TCO'03 Displays but some requirements are modified to conform to function and the modes of functionality. Three new requirements have also been introduced that measure picture quality in the moving picture and three requirements have been eliminated.
A display monitor intended for normal office work should even continue to, primarily, be labeled with TCO'03 Displays and, if the display monitor is a multifunctional unit, the possibility exists to label the unit with both labels. Read more at www.tcodevelopment.se.
TCO'03 DISPLAYS: The fourth labeling standard from TCO Development of Sweden. TCO are the initials (in Swedish) for the Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees. TCO'03 covers the same areas as the previous TCO'99 standard, but sets stricter requirements and includes many new requirements such as vertical tilt, vertical height adjustment, and a lead-free external cable, external adapter, plastic materials, battery, paint, and lacquer.
TCO'99: TCO are the initials (in Swedish) for the Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees. Compared with previous versions of this mark, TCO'99 requires office equipment meets stricter standards in four areas: ergonomics, energy, emissions, and ecology.
TCO'95: A version of the TCO mark established in 1995. TCO are the initials (in Swedish) for the Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees. TCO'95 includes strict standards for office equipment emission levels. The most recent version of the TCO mark is TCO'99.
A quality standard for displays developed in Germany. It is based on some parts of TÜV Rheinland/GS but more specific in terms of ergonomics, including guidelines for contrast, reflection, flicker, very low magnetic field, AEF, and electrostatic emissions.
All EIZO monitors meet or exceed the TÜV/Rheinland Ergonomics guidelines so the end user can rest assured of EIZO's commitment to quality, user health, comfort, and safety.
This is the German safety mark for electrical products ensuring proper equipment design voltage usage ratings to guard against electric shock, injury etc.
This is a mark for medical devices established by TÜV Rheinland of Germany. TÜV/GM is based on the European Union Medical Device Directive (MDD) EN60601-1, which addresses safety issues in medical devices. TÜV/GM also includes requirements for EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) as stipulated in EN60601-1-2.
A European regulation that has been in effect since 1 January 1997. It limits EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) and EMS (Electromagnetic Susceptibility/Immunity) and asks for electrical devices to be unaffected by such fields created by general office electrical equipment. All current EIZO products conform with the CE mark. CE Marking is the manufacturer's declaration showing compliance with all applicable directives. For most products sold in the EU, the use of CE Marking and a Declaration of Conformity are mandatory.
The CB Scheme is based on the principle of mutual recognition by means of certification through the use of internationally accepted standards. By virtually eliminating duplicate testing, the CB Scheme facilitates the international exchange and acceptance of product safety results among participating laboratories, otherwise known as National Certification Bodies (NCBs). The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) establishes the CB Scheme to reduce obstacles to international trade for certain types of electrical and electronic equipment. Before the CB Scheme, manufacturers had their products tested and certified by many different national testing laboratories/certification bodies - a difficult, time-consuming and expensive process.
CB Test Certificate is a formal CB Scheme document issued by an authorized NCB to inform other NCBs that a sample of the product tested was found to be in compliance with the applicable requirements. CB Test Certificate should not be used for advertising purpose, however reference to the existence of a CB Test Certificate is permitted.
CB Test Report is a standardized report in a clause by clause checklist format referencing, the requirements of the relevant IEC Standard. The report provides clear and unambiguous results of all the required tests, measurements, verifications, inspections and evaluations. It also contains photographs, circuit schematics, artwork drawings as well as description of the product. Under the rules of the CB Scheme, a CB Test Report is considered valid only if accompanied by a CB Test Certificate.
GOST R certification is mandatory for a wide range of products in the Russian market. This certification demonstrates compliance with basic safety requirements and the applicable product standards. All current EIZO products conform with the GOST R mark.
