<p style="margin:2px !important;">Light sources</p>
Description of Content

The draft Commission Delegated Regulation establishes requirements for the energy labelling and the provision of product information light sources. In particular, it removes the A+ to A++ classes from the existing energy label; it changes the measurement metrics for the energy label; it discontinues the energy label specifically dedicated to luminaires; and requires suppliers to upload the label data, the product information sheet and the 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 874/2012 with regard to energy labelling of electrical lamps and luminaires.

Objectives & Rationale
<p style="margin:2px !important;"><span style="font-face: Verdana;">The aim is to allow end-users to make an informed choice when buying light sources, thereby pulling the market towards more environmentally friendly products. It will increase energy efficiency and contribute to the fight against climate change in the EU.</span></p>
