trade-e-bility had already reported on new ecodesign requirements for tumble dryers.
In addition, the EU Commission published the first draft of an implementing regulation on the energy labelling of household tumble dryers on 1 March 2023. The draft itself and the annex to it are available for download here. The aim is to take into account the technical development in energy consumption over the last 10 years and to bring the classification back from the current A++ to D to the classes A to G. To this end, both the calculation of the Energy Efficiency Index (EEI) and the class limits will be changed. From 1 March 2025, the new markings will be visible at the points of sale. Feedback on the draft is still possible with the Commission until 4 April 2023. Economic operators affected, such as manufacturers, distributors or importers, should familiarise themselves with the requirements of the new labelling at an early stage.
The example shows that optimal Legal Monitoring is necessary as an existential risk precaution in order to protect you under product law.
