Toner powder’s environmental and health hazards
This criterion requests toner powder that is not classified as hazardous to the environment or human health.
- Technical specification
- Consumable items
The toner powder must not be classified, either in compulsory EU classification, or through self-classification, with the risk phrases and hazard statements specified in Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 of the European Parliament on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures. (The CLP Regulation).

The supplier shall, upon request, be able to present a verification, for example one of the following:
- Supplier declaration ensuring that the offered toner powder nit is classified according to the requirement. Material safety datasheets supporting this need to be in place.
- Material safety data sheets for each toner powder. The toner powder must not be classified according to any of the classifications above.
- Ecolabelling according to the Nordic Swan Ecolabel for Remanufactured OEM Cartridges, version 5 or later.
If the requirement has been verified with an ecolabel check for a valid ecolabelling license according to the Nordic Swan Ecolabel.
Material safety datasheet
If the requirement has been verified with material safety datasheets check that the toner powders covered by the contract does not have the classifications in the requirement.
The version date indicates when the sustainability criterion was created or last updated. Last reviewed dated tells when we last checked that the sustainability criterion still is relevant.
