COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 347/2010

of 21 April 2010

amending Commission Regulation (EC) No 245/2009 as regards the ecodesign requirements for fluorescent lamps without integrated ballast, for high intensity discharge lamps, and for ballasts and luminaires able to operate such lamps

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Directive 2009/125/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 October 2009 establishing a framework for the setting of ecodesign requirements for energy-related products (1), and in particular Article 15(1) thereof,

After consulting the Ecodesign Consultation Forum,

Whereas:

(1)

After the adoption of Commission Regulation (EC) No 245/2009 of 18 March 2009 implementing Directive 2005/32/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to ecodesign requirements for fluorescent lamps without integrated ballast, for high intensity discharge lamps, and for ballasts and luminaires able to operate such lamps, and repealing Directive 2000/55/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (2), it appeared that certain provisions of that Regulation should be amended in order to avoid unintended impacts on the availability and performance of the products covered by that Regulation.

(2)

In addition, it is necessary to improve coherence, as regards the requirements on product information, between on the one hand Regulation (EC) No 245/2009 and on the other hand Commission Regulation (EC) No 244/2009 of 18 March 2009 implementing Directive 2005/32/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to ecodesign requirements for non-directional household lamps (3).

(3)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee established by Article 19(1) of Directive 2009/125/EC,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Amendments to Regulation (EC) No 245/2009

Annexes I, II, III and IV to Regulation (EC) No 245/2009 are amended as set out in the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

Entry into force

This Regulation shall enter into force on the first day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

It shall apply from 13 April 2010.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 21 April 2010.

For the Commission

The President

José Manuel BARROSO
