Advanced Compliance Solutions Celebrates Earth Day with ENERGY STAR Win
New EPA rules start July 20 for energy efficient electronics and computers; test lab slashes testing for “green” products 25 percent.
Atlanta, GA – April 19, 2007 — Advanced Compliance Solutions Inc.’s state-of-the-art product testing laboratory has won Environmental Protection Agency certification and is now helping computer makers and other electronics manufacturers comply with the new ENERGY STAR requirements.
The Atlanta company also landed accreditation as a Third Party Testing Laboratory for the California Appliance Efficiency Regulations, which allows ACS to help electronics manufacturers comply with the nation’s new regulations.
|The EPA estimates that new energy efficient computers and electronics will save individuals and businesses more than $1.8 billion in energy costs over the next five years|
Advanced Compliance Solutions offers EMC testing, Wireless Certifications, Product Safety, Environmental and product performance testing, as well as other regulatory compliance services worldwide.
As part of its annual Earth Day celebration, ACS is launching its ECOmpliance Program, which gives qualified customers a 25 percent discount on testing on products that have been developed with the specific purpose to “improve the environment.” See ACS ECOmpliance Program for more information and how to participate. Earth Day is April 22.
“The EPA estimates that new energy efficient computers and electronics will save individuals and businesses more than $1.8 billion in energy costs over the next five years,” said ACS president Scott Proffitt. “I truly believe that the key to solving our pollution problems is through technology innovation. We just want to do our part to encourage their efforts and help people conserve energy.”
In addition to saving energy, the EPA’s new standards are designed to prevent greenhouse gas emissions equal to the annual emissions of 2.7 million cars. A single home office user who purchases an ENERGY STAR qualified computer, monitor, printer and fax can save enough electricity to light an entire home for more than four years.
The ENERGY STAR specification for computers, game consoles, and other hardware was revised late last year and is effective starting July 20, 2007. The program is voluntary, and was created in 1992 to encourage manufacturers to make energy efficient products.
Advanced Compliance Solutions can test power supplies and consumer audio-video equipment for the California Appliance Efficiency Regulations. ACS can also file the results with the California Energy Commission to comply with the laws that are mandatory in California.
