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-SL1056 and KV-SL1066 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.

Product take-back and end-of-life processing requirements
Panasonic has a very diverse product range in Europe. To manage our WEEE compliance across the EU, it has been our policy to register directly with appropriate recycling schemes in countries where we have legal company presence. Elsewhere, we work with our distributors to ensure that responsibilities are managed locally. We apply the same approach to battery recycling; we are also members of numerous systems in various European countries.
By clicking in the link below
under A Country by Country Approach you will find a list of schemes for each county, in which you will be able to learn more about their activities. Many also give guidance on how to recycle your electronic products in each country.
