Changes to Energy Labels and Ecodesign (EU)

1 March 2021 was the date for repeal and replacement of some of the pre-existing EU Regulations on both Energy Labels and Ecodesign.

15 product groups require an energy label, and 31 product groups are subject to ecodesign requirements – here.

Industry sectors may also sign voluntary agreements to reduce the energy consumption of their products. The European Commission formally recognises such agreements and monitors their implementation. 

The new Energy labels set out a different energy efficiency scale.

The new Ecodesign stipulations include requirements for repairability and availability of spare parts.
