CRT obsolecence - legislation driven ?

Hope this is the right forum to use.

Heard a rumour that PC display screens in the workplace cannot be of the cathod ray tube type in two years time. That is, flat screens will be greatly in favour.

All due to some kind of legislation coming into being, apparently.

Can someone confirm or dispel this rumour. If it is true can the legislation be identified.

The above doesn't answer your question but it does make interesting reading, there are also some d/l's which will help configure screen's for maximum benefit of the user.

The paper is dull enough to make baby Jesus cry but here it here and this one is a bit more user here

click here although legislation is not passed in the UK as of present, this article shows that CRT legislation is well underway.

Thanks for the replies everyone.

So summing up - it is down to legislation called EN 29241 and intro date could be some time away yet.

I hope the legislators will confirm intro date well in adance ?

in plenty of time, and by then we'll probably all be using TFT screens anyway.

".......we'll probably all be using TFT screens anyway."

I don't think so. My employers business has four PCs, two of which are rickety old cast offs donated by employees. These cast offs are ancient but better than his own.
