An extended warranty and service agreement give suppliers incentives to supply products with longer service life and make sure that repairable faults do not entail premature disposal of products.
Points are awarded for each extra year of the warranty and service agreement offered in the technical specification. Maximum points are awarded for 4 years or longer.
Points are awarded according to the following:
+4 years or more: X points. [X is specified by the contracting authority.]
+ 3 years: 0.75*X points.
+ 2 years: 0.5*X points.
+ 1 year: 0.25*X points.
Present a written assurance stating the number of years the warranty and service agreement is valid.
Replacement of batteries, (if the battery capacity has declined with more than 50%), may be demanded if the contracting authority want a more driving requirement.
Life cycle analyses show that the most significant environmental impact from computers and monitors occurs in the production phase. The most important measure for reducing environmental impact from use of computers and monitors is to use the products for long periods of time. To reduce the environmental impact, in particular during the usage phase, you can set high requirements on the energy performance of the product.
The sustainability criteria for computers and monitors contain requirements for energy efficiency, hazardous substances, extended product lifetime, and product recyclability. These categories reflect the most important environmental issues during the life cycle of the products.
