Through its oversight of the EPEAT Registry, the Green Electronics Council (GEC) works with a variety of Conformity Assurance Bodies (CABs), formerly known as Product Registration Entities (PREs), that assist manufacturers with product registration and verification. These CABs are testing and certification providers who are trained in EPEAT and have met certain qualifications to be involved with the system. This Resources section provides current and prospective CABs access to the Agreement with GEC and the day rate for GEC staff to engage in private trainings and audits.
CAB Audit and Support Services Fee
The EPEAT Program team provides CABs with specific support services, as outlined in the Agreement Between Conformity Assurance Body and Green Electronics Council. The fee for these services, inclusive of a yearly audit, is fixed at $2,000 per twelve month period. Audits performed on CAB premises also require the reimbursement of any actual travel costs for participating EPEAT Program team members.
CAB Optional Training Fee
The EPEAT Program team offers private CAB training sessions for prospective and current CABs. These optional trainings are charged at $1,000 per day, plus any actual travel costs for participating EPEAT Program team members.
Please contact Melanie Bower with any questions about CAB training and audits.
