Colourful A-to-G rainbow

This is APPLiA's one-stop-shop for suppliers, dealers & consumers.

It is only the label that changes,
not the energy consumption.

On March 1st 2021, a new energy label appeared in shops and online.

It is a fresh restart, making room for further innovations.

Timeline

In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact it has had on the operations of home appliance manufacturers, the European Commission has published a Communication Notice (here) on the application of the new Energy Labelling requirements for Washing Machines, Washer Dryers, Dishwashers and Refrigerators/Freezers and Electronic Displays. 

The Notice invites member States’ Market Surveillance Authorities to consider this exceptional context when enforcing those Energy Labelling Regulations. In particular, in order to avoid the unnecessary and unwanted scrapping of some new appliances, manufacturers would then be allowed to place products on the market that only have the current energy label until 1 March 2021, i.e. four months after the deadline set in the legislation.

Double labelling: why two different labels in shops?

On the shop floor, some appliances display the new label - the one with the QR code on it - others the old one. Why is it so?

 

The new energy label that started appearing in shops on 1 March 2021, currently only applies to washing machines, washer-dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators and freezers. The other product groups, such as air conditioners, ovens, range hoods, tumble dryers and water heaters are regulated under older legislation and display the old generation label.

 

It will not always be like this. The rules for those product groups will soon be reviewed, meaning they will also bear the new energy label in the future. 

 

In the meantime, both new - on washing machines, washer-dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators and freezers - and old labels - on air conditioners, ovens, range hoods, tumble dryers and water heaters - coexist on the shop floors and online. It is only the label that changes, not the energy consumption.
