Horizontal amendments to the 2019 Ecodesign and Energy Labelling Regulations (GEN – 1121.00)

09 June 2020

2 min read

GEN – 1121.00. The European Commission is working on an omnibus amendment to the Ecodesign and Energy Labelling Regulations published in 2019. This omnibus amendment is not a review of the Regulations that have been adopted. It is not to be considered as a vehicle for adding new elements, even if they would be ‘nice to have’. The amendment is limited to corrections and clarifications.

On 4 June 2020, Eurovent attended 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.

The first part of the meeting focused on horizontal amendments related to the notions of parameters and declared values.

In order to increase clarity with regard to ‘declared’ values and the difference between a parameter and a value, the Commission proposes to introduce a set of common amendments in Commission Delegated Regulations 2019/2013, 2019/2014, 2019/2015, 2019/2016, 2019/2017 and 2019/2018.

Of these Regulations, 2019/2018 is relevant for Eurovent.

For the Energy Labelling Regulation 2019/2018 on refrigerated vending machines with a direct sales function the amendments are:

Annex III.1.2 VII

‘-the temperature at the top: the maximum measured product temperature of the compartment(s)with chilling operating temperatures in degrees Celsius(°C) and rounded to the nearest integer first decimal place as set out in Table 4;’

Annex IX second sentence

The values and classes on the label or in the product fiche information sheet shall not be more favourable for the supplier than the value reported in the technical documentation

These (and other) amendments are likely to be approved. It is therefore reasonable to consider that the same approach will apply to the future revisions as well as to the new Regulations.

Recommended Actions

The manufacturers of refrigerated display cabinets are asked to consider the proposed amendment and provide the Eurovent Secretariat with their feedback.

All other manufacturers should take note of the clarification provided in GEN – 1121.02 so that they become familiar with the definitions regarding parameters and values.
