Achieve more – with less energy
Energy efficiency testing by TÜV SÜDGlobal efforts to mitigate climate change and preserve resources are intensifying, accompanied by stricter requirements for the manufacturers, importers and retailers of electrical products. This development involves both challenges and opportunities.
Legal compliance, secure market access
As early as December 2008, CommissionRegulation (EC) No. 1275/2008 definedthe future requirements for standby and off-mode electric power consumption of household and office equipment.
These reference values became binding in early 2010 and will be further reduced by 2013.
Apart from the above, further regulations must be complied with:
- Commission Regulation (EC) No. 107/2009 defines the eco-design requirements for set-top boxes.
- Commission Regulation (EC) No. 244/2009 governs the eco-design for non-directional household lamps.
- Commission Regulation (EC) No. 245/2009 establishes the eco-design for fluorescent lamps without integrated ballast.
- Commission Regulation (EC) No. 278/2009 defines the no-load condition electric power consumption of external power supplies.
- Commission Regulation (EC) No. 642/2009 describes the eco-design requirements for televisions.
- and more
More support – more growth
