The new CEC Level VI standards tighten regulations for existing power adapters and extend the reach of the standards to include multiple-voltage external power supplies and products with power levels greater than 250 watts. CEC Level VI requirements will be put into effect on February 10, 2016. Compliance with the new standard will be regulated from the manufacturing date, so products may still be shipped as long as they were produced prior to February 10.
