On December 20, 2013, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the final Version 3.0 ENERGY STAR® Telephony Product Specification, expending the scope to include Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephony products. The resulting revisions to the test method include the set-up of Power-over-Ethernet and a server.
Starting from May 15, 2014, certification bodies are instructed to stop certifying new product submittals to Version 2.2 requirements.
After Oct 1, 2014, all products must be certified to Telephony Product V.3.0 to bear the ENERGY STAR mark. All certifications of products to the old specifications will be invalid for purposes of ENERGY STAR® certification.
