42839095 story Apple To Discontinue Mac Pro In EU Over Safety Regulations 371 Posted by Soulskill on Saturday February 02, 2013 @10:28AM from the not-all-product-lines-are-created-equal dept. jones_supa writes "Apple has been forced to remove the Mac Pro from sale in the European Union after an amendment to a safety regulation left the machines non-compliant. The updated electronics safety standard IEC 60950-1 increases requirements around electrical port protection (PDF) and the fan guards in the system. Apple does not plan to modify their machines and will simply pull them from market in the EU. Apple wishes to warn customers and partners about the change so that they would have sufficient time to order Mac Pro units and meet any needs prior to 1 March, when the amendment comes into effect."
