About EPEAT®

EPEAT® is an environmental rating and global registry program developed using a grant from the U.S. EPA and managed by the Green Electronics Council. It's a convenient resource for purchasers, manufacturers, resellers and others wanting to identify and promote environmentally preferable products.

EPEAT registered imaging products meet an extensive list of environmental based criteria covered in the IEEE 1680.2 Standard for Environmental Assessment of Imaging Equipment. For more information please visit EPEAT's website.

The information below describes Brother’s commitment to meeting EPEAT requirements for certified imaging products.

Within one year after the EPEAT-registered product is put on the market, Brother will provide reuse and recycling facilities with information about hazardous materials, their location within the product, and any special handling needs required. Brother ensures that those materials are safely and easily identifiable. Information regarding access to the recycling information regarding the models listed below can be obtained by contacting Brother Customer Support at 1-877-276-8437.
