Summary
  • Sweden-based Tjaenstemaennens Central Organization (TCO) is a world leader in setting standards for ergonomics in the computer industry. TCO sets voluntary standards for computer hardware, such as keyboards and monitors, as an alternative to strict government regulations that may take years longer to implement. TCO's influence is strongest in northern Europe, but it is beginning to make its presence felt in the US and Asia. Currently, 75% of all monitors sold in Sweden and 40% of those sold in Germany are TCO-approved. Sony and IBM have both been certified as providing TCO-compliant monitors. Compaq, Dell Computer and Samsung Electronics are all petitioning for TCO certification status. TCO is also working on a revised standard, tentatively called TCO-95, that will extend ergonomic and safety requirements far beyond current levels. Future TCO standards may include attempts to extend electromagnetic emission standards beyond monitors to other office equipment.
