Since 1 January 2019, energy consumption-relevant products affected that are placed on the European Union market for the first time have had to be registered in the EPREL database before being marketed.
Products affected that were first placed on the European Union market between 1 August 2017 and 1 January 2019 were likewise subject to registration in the database by 30 June 2019. Mandatory registration does not apply only to those products that were exclusively placed on the market for the first time prior to 1 August 2017.
This concerns all energy consumption-relevant products for which a delegated regulation has been issued in accordance with EU Framework Regulation 2017/1369 or EU Directive 2010/30/EU.
In 2021, a reform in the area of energy labels is / was pending. You can learn more about this in our webinar recording about the EPREL database. Please watch our free webinar here.
