News: EU Ecolabel criteria for Televisions extended and amended
The TV's criteria have been extended and amended to reflect changes in the efficiency of TV's and pending the adoption of a new set of energy efficiency classes to replace the existing energy labelling and eco-design requirements for TV's.
Thursday, 25th January 2018
The existing EU Ecolabel criteria for TVs have been extended until 31st December 2019 and the energy efficiency thresholds have been updated. Energy Class B is now not one of the most efficient classes sold on the market in the Union. The first criterion in Decision 2009/300/EC therefore needed to be updated to ensure that the EU Ecolabel is only awarded to products that are energy efficient. Commission decision 2018/59 dated 18th January 2018 can be found in the link below.
