EU amends energy efficiency labeling regulations

The Parliament and the Council of the European Union (EU) have amended the EU’s energy-efficiency labeling program regulations for office equipment.

The EU originally issued energy-efficiency labeling regulations in 2008 to support its partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR program. Since then, the EU has also established a framework that created ecodesign requirements for a wide range of energy-related products, as well as a 2010 directive addressing labeling and product information requirements. In addition, the EU and the U.S. have recently signed an updated agreement defining the coordination of their respective energy-efficiency labeling programs for office equipment. The amended EU regulations were issued to accurately reflect these and other changes.

The amendments to the EU’s energy-efficiency labeling program were published in the Official Journal of the European Union in March 2013. Read the complete text of the EU’s regulations amendments to its energy-efficiency labeling program regulations for office equipment.
