Saving EPEAT Product Detail Page

In October 2008, the lab adopted the policy to procure Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT)-registered products rated SILVER or above.  When procuring a desktop, laptop, monitor, or other imaging equipment, (such as a scanner or fax machine), you should find products meeting this EPEAT requirement.  Other products may be considered for purchase only if no EPEAT-registered products meet the user's functional requirements.

To find out if a system is EPEAT compliant, you must search the EPEAT registry, save the entry, and attach it to your PR.  If you have the model number, use that to search at https://www.epeat.net.  The model must be listed as EPEAT silver or higher with a product status of 'Active'.  If the product status is listed as 'Archived', then the system is no longer EPEAT compliant.  This means the item may be denied.  A justification for the item should be included in the 'Notes' section of the PR.

Once you have your EPEAT page, you can save it several ways:

  1. Go to File and Save As
    • The default file type from your browser should be .html or .htm
    • Attach this file to your PR
  2. Take a screen shot and paste into a Word document
    • The Snip & Sketch tool on Windows is very handy
    • Save the Word file as a PDF and attach to your PR
  3. Adobe Pro users can save webpages as PDFs if they're using the Adobe browser plug-in
    • Attach the PDF file to your PR
