Samsung has received the TCO’03 Displays Certification for most of its monitor range. The standard is TCO Development’s new quality certification and environmental labelling, created in Sweden and currently used by manufacturers worldwide.

TCO’03 Displays is the fourth such certification developed by TCO Development for displays and is a revised version of TCO’99, which continues to be the single most used standard.

“Several of Samsung’s models fulfil the requirements for the new environmental and quality labelling," says Jan Rudling, Managing Director of TCO Development.

"With TCO’03 Displays, the requirements for user-friendliness, picture quality as well as environmental characteristics, among other things, have been made more stringent.”

Samsung will now offer an entire series of computer displays bearing the new TCO’03 Displays label. The labelling standard applies to TFT-LCD (15, 17, 19 and 21 inch) and CRT displays (17 and 19 inch).

The following SyncMaster models have also been certified: 172T, 153S, 193T and 213T.

“The TCO label is a stamp of quality for Samsung,” says K.S.Vasudevan, Senior Manager, Digital Information Technology Division, Samsung Gulf Electronics.

“It confirms our commitment to meet stringent quality stipulations to benefit end-users. Models with TCO’03 certification will be made available to the corporate market in the Middle East that demands stringent quality in the products they purchase.”

About half of all displays manufactured in the world today are TCO labelled. The new labelling standard was developed partly to meet the requirements for new quality certification for flat panel displays.
