This paper reviews newly proposed product standards for Computer Servers in the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT®) program. A brief overview of the program in place for other information technology products is presented and followed with a status and details on the standard writing for the new product group — Computer Servers. Two standards organizations are each writing their own unique standard for Computer Servers, the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF). The proposed criteria and status of each draft standard, as available at the time of writing, will be presented and reviewed.
