Apple has been forced to remove the Mac Pro from sale in Europe after an amendment to a safety regulation left the professional Mac incompliant.

Today the company has reached out to its sales and channel partners to confirm that orders for the Mac Pro must be placed by 18 February as the company will be unable to ship the model to these countries from the 1 March.

Apple told Macworld that the amendment to the IEC 60950-1 regulation increases requirements around electrical port protection and the fan guards in the system. The Mac Pro met the previous standards prior to the amendment 1 addition. Apple told us that it considers the Mac Pro to be a very safe and very reliable product.
