Energy Labelling Regulation Published with Effects for the Lighting Industry

LightingEurope notes the publication on 28 July of the Regulation (EU) 2017/1369 setting a framework for energy labelling and repealing Directive 2010/30/EU.

The Regulation establishes deadlines to replace the current A+, A++, A+++ energy efficiency classes with an A to G scale and a product database, consisting of a compliance part and a public online portal.

To apply the new classes, millions of lighting products will need to be relabelled in a short period of time. LightingEurope restates that at least a 24 months period for companies is needed to implement new labels on products, so that unnecessary costs and packaging waste can be avoided.

The Lighting industry asks the Commission to consider the correct boundaries for future energy classes to avoid that the future highest classes remain empty for the next decade.

A delegated act for labelling on lighting products shall be adopted in 15 months which will detail scope, timelines and product classes. LightingEurope will continue to cooperate with the European Commission to provide data on the specificities of the lighting industry and work towards a smooth transition. We will also be taking part in the expert group created by the European Commission, that will set up a product database as of January 2019 to enable market surveillance authorities of Member States to enforce labelling requirements.
