EU Commission issues revised energy labeling requirements for home appliances

The Commission of the European Union (EU) has issued new regulations regarding the requirements for the energy labeling of a number of common household appliances and electronic devices.

The new energy labeling requirements were promulgated by the Commission in an effort to increase consumer knowledge about the actual energy consumption of comparable household appliances, thereby creating incentives for manufacturers to improve the energy efficiency of their respective products.

Four separate “Delegated Regulations,” covering dishwashers, refrigerators, washing machines and television sets, were published in November 2010 in the Official Journal of the European Communities, and replace labeling requirements previously found in earlier energy labeling directives.  The new labeling requirements come into effect beginning in late 2011.
