According to an announcement Thursday from the Mac-maker, Apple will stop selling its Mac Pro series in Europe on March 1st.

Apple confirmed the decision in a written letter to the company’s resellers across Europe.

Amendment 1 of Regulation IEC 60950-1 is being blamed for the pullout, although Apple didn’t delineate exactly how the Mac Pro violates local regulations.

The text of the letter is as follows:

As of March 1, 2013, Apple will no longer sell Mac Pro in EU, EU candidate and EFTA countries because these systems are not compliant with Amendment 1 of regulation IEC 60950-1, Second Edition which becomes effective on this date. Apple resellers can continue to sell any remaining inventory of Mac Pro after March 1.

Apple will take final orders for Mac Pro from resellers up until February 18th for shipment before March 1, 2013.

Countries outside of the EU are not impacted and Mac Pro will continue to be available in those areas.

Apple did not offer comment on whether future Mac Pro computers will be made compliant with local European regulations.
