Guidelines for Ecodesign and Energy Labelling rules

LightingEurope has poured our members’ collective expertise into a new revised version 4 of our guidelines on the EU Ecodesign and Energy Labelling rules for light sources.

What’s new

This new revised version includes all the changes introduced by the Omnibus Amendment published on 26 February 2021 (e.g. SVM, heating lamps, energy label transition period from 1st July, revised language in the provision on containing products). It contains our latest understanding on a number of elements in the Regulations and their amendment, in some cases also including the comments we have received from the European Commission.

NEW in version 4:

  • difference between ‘light source’ in these Regulations and in the Harmonised Nomenclature 2022 (Customs Codes)
  • practical recommendation on CE marking of light sources placed on the market as part of a containing product
  • regarding full-load and reference control setting: guidance on how to declare the energy class of light sources
  • recommendation on whether to register in EPREL products that will be phased out on 1 September 2021
  • advice on how to supply the energy label on shaped surfaces
