Description of Content

The draft Commission Delegated Regulation establishes requirements for the energy labelling and the provision of product information of refrigerating appliances. In particular, it removes the A+ to A+++ classes from the existing energy label for household refrigerating appliances and requires suppliers to upload the label data, the product information sheet and technical documentation into a product registration database before products can be placed on the EU market. The draft Commission Delegated Regulation is based on the findings of two technical, environmental and economic studies, which have been carried out with stakeholders. The draft Regulation repeals Regulation (EU) No 1060/2010 with regard to energy labelling of household refrigerating appliances.

It will increase energy efficiency and contribute to the fight against climate change in the EU.</span></p>
