Draft omnibus amendments to several 2019 Ecodesign and Energy Labelling Regulations (GEN – 1185.00)

24 November 2020

2 min read

GEN – 1185.00. The Ecodesign and Energy Labelling Committee and the Energy Labelling Expert Group have voted/discussed the draft omnibus amendment to several 2019 Ecodesign and Energy Labelling Regulations. These draft acts aim to amend several pieces of legislation, those of relevance for Eurovent are (EU) 2019/2024 – (EU) 2019/2018 (refrigerating appliances with a direct sales function).

Further to the the virtual meeting of the European Commission Ecodesign and Energy Labelling Consultation Forum on draft omnibus Regulations related to 2019 Ecodesign and Energy Labelling Regulations on 2 June 2020, and further to the past public consultation (6 October – 3 November 2020), the European Commission presented its draft omnibus amendments.

Eurovent accompanied the European Commission in the process and provided its position resulting from 3 dedicated meetings of the PG-RDC.

Status quo and next steps

The Ecodesign and Energy Labelling Committee has positively voted a text (GEN – 1185.01). Once translated, the Ecodesign draft Regulation will be subject to Scrutiny right by the European Parliament and the Council, before the European Commission can adopt it.

The Energy Labelling Expert Group has discussed a text (GEN – 1185.02). Once translated, the Energy Labelling draft Regulation will first be adopted by the European Commission, then subject to Objection right by the European Parliament and the Council (see process graphic below).

The Amendments to both the Ecodesign and the Energy Labelling Regulations for refrigerating appliances having a direct sales function are supposed to be fully in place on 1 March 2021.

For information: Ecodesign and Energy Labelling process

Recommended actions

The concerned Eurovent members are asked to consider the proposed amendments and prepare themselves before 1 March 2021.
