Ziel von TCO ist es, den Fortschritt hin zu nachhaltigen IT-Produkten voranzutreiben. Zertifizierte Produkte müssen während des gesamten Lebenszyklus umfassende ökologische und soziale Kriterien erfüllen. So müssen die Fabriken, in denen zertifizierte Produkte hergestellt werden, Kriterien zu Arbeitszeiten, Arbeitsumgebung und Löhnen einhalten. Die Produkte müssen Kriterien für Energieeffizienz, ergonomisches Design und einen begrenzten Gehalt an gefährlichen Stoffen erfüllen. Unabhängige, akkreditierte Organisationen verifizieren, dass Fabriken und Produkte alle Kriterien in TCO Certified erfüllen. Die Verifizierung erfolgt sowohl vor als auch nach der Ausstellung des Zertifikats und deckt den gesamten Gültigkeitszeitraum ab.
TCO Certified ist die weltweit führende Nachhaltigkeitszertifizierung für IT-Produkte. Die Organisation hinter der Nachhaltigkeitszertifizierung ist TCO Development.
TCO Certified ist eine Produktzertifizierung. Marken können nicht von TCO Development zertifiziert werden.

In the A-section of the criteria document each critiera starts with a "background" describing the reasons for the critiera and its intended impact. Criteria levels are determined based on resarch, pre-tests of products and discussions with the industry, stakeholders and experts. The criteria levels are set so that 30-50% of the products on the market can achieve them at the launch of a new generation of the certification. Each 3 years the criteria are revised to reflect the new improved situation on the market. In this way the scheme is constantly driving the progress towards it's sustainability goals and measuring the effectiveness of each critiera.

        7.1.1 Mandate The product must not contain cadmium, mercury, lead and hexavalent chromium. 7.1.2 Clarification Exemptions are according to EU Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS) and the documents supporting the directive except that mercury in lamps is not permitted. The maximum concentration values tolerated by weight in homogeneous materials for cadmium, mercury, lead and hexavalent chromium are according to EU Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS) and the documents supporting the directive. The limit value for batteries is 0.0005 % for mercury, 0.002 % for cadmium and 0.004 % lead per listed part, according to EU Directive 2006/66/EC. Background Electronic devices contain hazardous substances like heavy metals and brominated flame retardants. The effects of cadmium, mercury, lead and hexavalent chromium are well documented as substances hazardous both to human health and the environment. They may cause problems, both in the manufacturing phase where workers or the environment can be exposed, in the use phase where additives can leak from the plastic and accumulate in dust, harming both our health and the environment, and at the material recovery, where uncontrolled recycling can cause the release of toxins such as dioxins and furans. This criterion is harmonized with EU RoHS2 Directive (2011/65/EU), except that TCO Certified does not allow mercury in the display panel backlight. As TCO Certified is a global certification, this also affects products sold outside the EU. 7.2.1 Mandate 1. Parts that weigh more than 25 grams (10 g for headsets and 5 g for smartphones) and are made mainly of plastics must not contain flame retardants or plasticizers with halogenated substances or intentionally added halogens as part of the polymer. a. Exempted are printed wiring board laminates, electronic components and all kinds of cable insulation. 2. The product must not contain PBB, PBDE and HBCDD. a. Note: This applies to components, parts and raw materials in all assemblies and sub-assemblies of the product, such as batteries, paint, surface treatment, plastics and electronic components. 7.3.1 Mandate ● Non-halogenated flame retardants used in parts that weigh more than 25 grams (10 g for headsets and 5 g for smartphones) and are made mainly of plastics must have been assigned a GreenScreen benchmark score of 2, 3 or 4 by a licensed GreenScreen Profiler and appear on the public TCO Certified Accepted Substance List. (A benchmark U may only be accepted when the “worst case scenario” for data gaps is considered to be a benchmark 2 or above.) ● All substances of a mixture must be accounted for. Non-accepted substances must not exceed concentration levels of 0.1% by weight of the flame retardant. ● Exempted are printed wiring board laminates, electronic components and all kinds of cable insulation. 7.4.1 Mandate ● Plasticizers used in product housing and cable insulations must have been assigned a GreenScreen benchmark score of 2, 3 or 4 by a licensed GreenScreen profiler and appear on the public TCO Certified Accepted Substance List. A benchmark U is only accepted when the “worst case scenario” for data gaps is considered to be a benchmark 2 or above. ● The product must not contain Bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), Butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), Dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP). No parts of the product are exempted. ● All substances of a plasticizer mixture must be accounted for. Non-accepted ingredients must not exceed concentration levels of 0.1% by weight of the plasticizer. 7.5.1 Mandate The packaging material must not contain lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg) or hexavalent chromium (Cr6).

        7.2.1 Mandate 1. Parts that weigh more than 25 grams (10 g for headsets and 5 g for smartphones) and are made mainly of plastics must not contain flame retardants or plasticizers with halogenated substances or intentionally added halogens as part of the polymer. a. Exempted are printed wiring board laminates, electronic components and all kinds of cable insulation. 2. The product must not contain PBB, PBDE and HBCDD. a. Note: This applies to components, parts and raw materials in all assemblies and sub-assemblies of the product, such as batteries, paint, surface treatment, plastics and electronic components. 7.2.2 Clarification 1. The criterion applies to plastic parts in all assemblies and sub-assemblies. LCD panels are included in the requirement. 2. The criterion applies to the whole of the product, including components, parts and raw materials in all assemblies and sub-assemblies, such as batteries, paint, surface treatment, plastics, electronic components and printed wiring boards. HBCDD has been identified as a Substance of Very High Concern in accordance with EU’s REACH criteria. The main application of HBCDD in EEE is a flame retardant in HIPS plastic being used for closures and structural parts of different types of EEE. TCO Development considers that the use of HBCDD in EEE is not deemed essential as technically suitable alternative substances and materials are available and already used extensively today. Maximum concentration values tolerated for a restricted substance (including decaBDE) is 0.1 % by weight of the material in homogeneous materials. Fluoroorganic additives, used to modify the dripping behaviour of plastics in fire conditions or to improve the processing behaviour, are exempted provided that they do not exceed 0.5 % by weight of the material in homogeneous materials. 7.3.1 Mandate ● Non-halogenated flame retardants used in parts that weigh more than 25 grams (10 g for headsets and 5 g for smartphones) and are made mainly of plastics must have been assigned a GreenScreen benchmark score of 2, 3 or 4 by a licensed GreenScreen Profiler and appear on the public TCO Certified Accepted Substance List. (A benchmark U may only be accepted when the “worst case scenario” for data gaps is considered to be a benchmark 2 or above.) ● All substances of a mixture must be accounted for. Non-accepted substances must not exceed concentration levels of 0.1% by weight of the flame retardant. ● Exempted are printed wiring board laminates, electronic components and all kinds of cable insulation. Background: [...] This mandate uses the hazard assessment and decision logic framework GreenScreen® for Safer Chemicals, developed by the non-profit organization Clean Production Action (CPA). The GreenScreen criteria are in line with international standards and regulations including the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), OECD testing protocols and the European REACH Regulation. The U.S. EPA’s Design for Environment (DfE) Alternatives Assessment is also an important influence for GreenScreen. 7.4.1 Mandate ● Plasticizers used in product housing and cable insulations must have been assigned a GreenScreen benchmark score of 2, 3 or 4 by a licensed GreenScreen profiler and appear on the public TCO Certified Accepted Substance List. A benchmark U is only accepted when the “worst case scenario” for data gaps is considered to be a benchmark 2 or above. ● The product must not contain Bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), Butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), Dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP). No parts of the product are exempted. ● All substances of a plasticizer mixture must be accounted for. Non-accepted ingredients must not exceed concentration levels of 0.1% by weight of the plasticizer.

        7.1.1 Mandate The product must not contain cadmium, mercury, lead and hexavalent chromium. 7.1.2 Clarification Exemptions are according to EU Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS) and the documents supporting the directive except that mercury in lamps is not permitted. The maximum concentration values tolerated by weight in homogeneous materials for cadmium, mercury, lead and hexavalent chromium are according to EU Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS) and the documents supporting the directive. The limit value for batteries is 0.0005 % for mercury, 0.002 % for cadmium and 0.004 % lead per listed part, according to EU Directive 2006/66/EC. Background Electronic devices contain hazardous substances like heavy metals and brominated flame retardants. The effects of cadmium, mercury, lead and hexavalent chromium are well documented as substances hazardous both to human health and the environment. They may cause problems, both in the manufacturing phase where workers or the environment can be exposed, in the use phase where additives can leak from the plastic and accumulate in dust, harming both our health and the environment, and at the material recovery, where uncontrolled recycling can cause the release of toxins such as dioxins and furans. This criterion is harmonized with EU RoHS2 Directive (2011/65/EU), except that TCO Certified does not allow mercury in the display panel backlight. As TCO Certified is a global certification, this also affects products sold outside the EU. 7.2.1 Mandate 1.

Independent social audit reports to TCO Development The brand owner must ensure that TCO Certified Portal is continuously updated with the most recent independent initial audit report and CAPs for any non-conformities from all the final assembly factories manufacturing the certified product. Brand owners or applicants / manufacturers must submit audit reports and CAPs to an approved verifier for upload to TCO Certified Portal. Consistency of these reports are ensured through annual spot-checks by TCO Development. The audit interval is determined by the risk category of the factory. 1. Independent audits must be conducted by organizations accredited to ISO 17021 and carried out by SA8000, RBA or BSCI certified lead auditors. An independent party is considered to be a person or body that is recognized as being independent of the parties involved, regarding the issue in question. 2. Types of accepted audits are: a. SA8000, b. RBA VAP, c. RBA Non-VAP: full audit with same auditor qualification, audit and report quality as a RBA VAP audit, or d. BSCI: full audit with at least ‘C’ grade and completed CAP. e. Other audits with evidence that could prove ‘equal quality to other approved audits’ must include auditor qualification, audit process (e.g. triangulation of non-conformities), audit report and CAP. This option will need to be verified by an approved verifier and accepted by TCO Development before it is used.

TCO Development additionally requires the documentation below to be verified by an independent verifier approved by TCO Development: […] 2.1.2 Clarification General Clarifications The mandate is a social performance mandate and criteria are based on the eight ILO (International Labour Organization) core conventions and local legislation. The mandate requires that the brand owner is in conformity with the minimum standards for code of conduct, inspection and corrective action engagement, regarding the situation at their own and/or their supplier factories manufacturing certified products. * Collective bargaining and freedom of association: All workers must have the right to form, join and organize trade unions of their choice and to have them bargain collectively on their behalf with employers. In situations where this is restricted under law, employers must allow workers to freely and democratically elect their own representative(s) for the purpose of defending the rights and interests of workers. * Local labor law clarifications: The limit and enforcement of local law regarding working hours differs tremendously across the world. To harmonize with other initiatives and to find a reasonable level for the industry, the criteria in TCO Certified sets a maximum 60 hour working week, including overtime, as a global requirement regardless of the local law. The criteria in TCO Certified sets a global limit for weekly working hours that includes overtime based on ILO convention 1 (56 hours per working week including overtime) and an additional 4 hours per working week is given to harmonize with SAI and RBA. Therefore, working weeks including overtime are not to exceed a total of 60 hours. A working week is considered 1 day of every 6 consecutive work days. To monitor continued conformity during an agreed period of time, when considered necessary the factory will be required to submit working week data to TCO Development using the working week template. The template to be used will be shared with the brand owner or factory owner by TCO Development.

        2.1.1 Mandate By signing this mandate, the brand owner agrees to the (1.) Commitment and agrees to conduct the (2.) Structured work. Additionally TCO Development requires that the brand owner shows (3.) Proof of the commitment and the structured work by allowing random inspections, by sharing audit reports and CAPs and by providing other documented proof described below. 1. Commitment ● The brand owner must have a code of conduct for the manufacture of certified products, that is considered consistent with the following: ○ ILO’s eight core conventions: 29, 87*, 98*, 100, 105, 111, 138 and 182. ○ UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 32. ○ All applicable local and national health and safety and labor laws effective in the country of manufacture and a 60 hour working week including overtime*. *See clarifications 2.1.2 2. Structured work ● The brand owner must report the final assembly factories for each certified product model in TCO Certified Portal in the application for a new certificate. ● For all factories listed in TCO Certified Portal that the brand owner is using, the brand owner must supervise the implementation of the code of conduct. ● In the final assembly factories and in the rest of the supply chain, the brand owner must ensure that CAPs are developed and fulfilled within reasonable time for all non-conformities against their code of conduct that the brand owner is made aware of. 3. Proof 1. TCO Development may conduct / commission random factory inspections (spot checks) at any final assembly factory manufacturing certified products for the brand owner and may require full audit reports during the certification period in order to assess social commitment and advancement. 2. TCO Development may also require seeing audit reports and CAPs from factories further down the supply chain to ensure that corrective actions have been successfully implemented. 3. TCO Development additionally requires the documentation below to be verified by an independent verifier approved by TCO Development: […] 2.1.2 Clarification General Clarifications The mandate is a social performance mandate and criteria are based on the eight ILO (International Labour Organization) core conventions and local legislation. The mandate requires that the brand owner is in conformity with the minimum standards for code of conduct, inspection and corrective action engagement, regarding the situation at their own and/or their supplier factories manufacturing certified products. * Collective bargaining and freedom of association: All workers must have the right to form, join and organize trade unions of their choice and to have them bargain collectively on their behalf with employers. In situations where this is restricted under law, employers must allow workers to freely and democratically elect their own representative(s) for the purpose of defending the rights and interests of workers. * Local labor law clarifications: The limit and enforcement of local law regarding working hours differs tremendously across the world. To harmonize with other initiatives and to find a reasonable level for the industry, the criteria in TCO Certified sets a maximum 60 hour working week, including overtime, as a global requirement regardless of the local law. The criteria in TCO Certified sets a global limit for weekly working hours that includes overtime based on ILO convention 1 (56 hours per working week including overtime) and an additional 4 hours per working week is given to harmonize with SAI and RBA. Therefore, working weeks including overtime are not to exceed a total of 60 hours. A working week is considered 1 day of every 6 consecutive work days. To monitor continued conformity during an agreed period of time, when considered necessary the factory will be required to submit working week data to TCO Development using the working week template. The template to be used will be shared with the brand owner or factory owner by TCO Development.

          TCO Certified requires local law to be followed for this point. In most all countries, the law states the requirement of the employer to contribute a portion of worker's wages to national or private insurance schemes. TCO Certified limits the audit type to control compliance at the factories to RBA-VAP or SA8000. Both audits check that insurance payments are calculated and reported correctly in accordance to local law. If non-compliant this must be corrected in accordance to TCO Certified otherwise this is entered as a non-compliance until corrected.

        2.1.1 Mandate By signing this mandate, the brand owner agrees to the (1.) Commitment and agrees to conduct the (2.) Structured work. Additionally TCO Development requires that the brand owner shows (3.) Proof of the commitment and the structured work by allowing random inspections, by sharing audit reports and CAPs and by providing other documented proof described below. 1. Commitment ● The brand owner must have a code of conduct for the manufacture of certified products, that is considered consistent with the following: ○ ILO’s eight core conventions: 29, 87*, 98*, 100, 105, 111, 138 and 182. ○ UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 32. ○ All applicable local and national health and safety and labor laws effective in the country of manufacture and a 60 hour working week including overtime*. *See clarifications 2.1.2 2. Structured work ● The brand owner must report the final assembly factories for each certified product model in TCO Certified Portal in the application for a new certificate. ● For all factories listed in TCO Certified Portal that the brand owner is using, the brand owner must supervise the implementation of the code of conduct. ● In the final assembly factories and in the rest of the supply chain, the brand owner must ensure that CAPs are developed and fulfilled within reasonable time for all non-conformities against their code of conduct that the brand owner is made aware of. 3. Proof 1. TCO Development may conduct / commission random factory inspections (spot checks) at any final assembly factory manufacturing certified products for the brand owner and may require full audit reports during the certification period in order to assess social commitment and advancement. 2. TCO Development may also require seeing audit reports and CAPs from factories further down the supply chain to ensure that corrective actions have been successfully implemented. 3. TCO Development additionally requires the documentation below to be verified by an independent verifier approved by TCO Development: […] 2.1.2 Clarification General Clarifications The mandate is a social performance mandate and criteria are based on the eight ILO (International Labour Organization) core conventions and local legislation. The mandate requires that the brand owner is in conformity with the minimum standards for code of conduct, inspection and corrective action engagement, regarding the situation at their own and/or their supplier factories manufacturing certified products. * Collective bargaining and freedom of association: All workers must have the right to form, join and organize trade unions of their choice and to have them bargain collectively on their behalf with employers. In situations where this is restricted under law, employers must allow workers to freely and democratically elect their own representative(s) for the purpose of defending the rights and interests of workers. * Local labor law clarifications: The limit and enforcement of local law regarding working hours differs tremendously across the world. To harmonize with other initiatives and to find a reasonable level for the industry, the criteria in TCO Certified sets a maximum 60 hour working week, including overtime, as a global requirement regardless of the local law. The criteria in TCO Certified sets a global limit for weekly working hours that includes overtime based on ILO convention 1 (56 hours per working week including overtime) and an additional 4 hours per working week is given to harmonize with SAI and RBA. Therefore, working weeks including overtime are not to exceed a total of 60 hours. A working week is considered 1 day of every 6 consecutive work days. To monitor continued conformity during an agreed period of time, when considered necessary the factory will be required to submit working week data to TCO Development using the working week template. The template to be used will be shared with the brand owner or factory owner by TCO Development.
