The Eurasian Economic Commission reports on the submission of the draft technical regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) On the requirements for energy efficiency for energy-consuming devices to the EAEU countries for domestic approval.
The technical regulations are designed to prevent actions that can mislead consumers in the matter of energy efficiency of energy-consuming devices, as well as to promote energy efficiency and resource saving within the Union.
The document applies to energy-consuming devices produced in the Member States of the EAEU: refrigerators, freezers, electric induction motors, television sets, washing machines and dishwashers, electric lamps, circulating pumps, fans, vacuum cleaners, air conditioners, etc.
The technical regulations establish mandatory requirements for energy-consuming devices in terms of their energy efficiency and labelling that must be applied and fulfilled throughout the Union. For example, in accordance with the draft, an energy-consuming device must be designed and manufactured in such a way as to conform to the requirements of the technical regulations when it is used for its intended purpose and when the requirements for the installation, operation, storage, transportation and maintenance are met.
Labelling of an energy-consuming device must contain the name and (or) identification of the energy-consuming devices (type, brand, model − if available), its main parameters and characteristics of energy efficiency, name and/or trademark of the manufacturer, the name of the country of origin of this energy consuming device. The information provided in the labelling must be applied to the energy-consuming device and specified in the accompanying service documents.
The labelling of the energy-consuming device must be legible and easy to read. It should be applied to the energy-consuming device in a place accessible for inspection without a tool-aided disassembly.
The responsible developer of the technical regulations of the EAEU “On the requirements for energy efficiency of energy-consuming devices” is the Eurasian Economic Commission.
