Panasonic is pleased to offer EPEAT® Registered document scanner products, helping government and commercial customers identify products and solutions which are designed to reduce their environmental impact.

What is an EPEAT Registered Product?

EPEAT registered imaging products meet an extensive list of environmental life-cycle based criteria in the IEEE1680.2 Standard for Environmental Assessment of Image Equipment.

To have an EPEAT registered imaging device, the product must meet at least 33 environmental performance criteria to achieve a bronze rating. Registered products are eligible to achieve a higher rating by meeting some or all of the 26 optional criteria.

Panasonic EPEAT Registered Scanners

Panasonic is currently in the process of registering the Panasonic KV-S1027C and KV-S1057C workgroup document scanners. Once our products are registered, Panasonic will be working on adding additional products to the EPEAT Registry.

Please review the section below to learn more about how Panasonic meets some of the most important EPEAT requirements for its document scanner products.

Criteria and Materials with special handling needs

Within one year of product market introduction, Panasonic must provide all reuse and recycling facilities an end-of-life (EOL) characterization report.

EOL characterization reports provide information for identifying the presence and location of all materials and components which are considered hazardous or requiring special handling within a product. The EOL characterization reports also contain information on how to properly process the materials identified in Directive 2002/96/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Annex II.

The EOL characterization reports for Panasonic’s EPEAT registered scanners are available below.
