COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) No 1062/2010

of 28 September 2010

supplementing Directive 2010/30/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to energy labelling of televisions

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Directive 2010/30/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 19 May 2010 on the indication by labelling and standard product information of the consumption of energy and other resources by energy-related products (1), and in particular Article 10 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Directive 2010/30/EU requires the Commission to adopt delegated acts as regards the labelling of energy related products representing significant potential for energy savings and having a wide disparity in performance levels with equivalent functionality.

(2)

The electricity used by televisions accounts for a significant share of total household electricity demand in the Union and televisions with equivalent functionality have a wide disparity in terms of energy efficiency. The energy efficiency of televisions can be significantly improved. Televisions should therefore be covered by requirements on energy labelling.

(3)

Harmonised provisions for indicating the energy efficiency and consumption of televisions by labelling and standard product information should be established in order to provide incentives for manufacturers to improve the energy efficiency of televisions, encourage end-users to purchase energy-efficient models, reduce the electricity consumption of these products, and contribute to the functioning of the internal market.

(4)

The combined effect of the provisions set out in this Regulation and in Commission Regulation (EC) No 642/2009 of 22 July 2009 implementing Directive 2005/32/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to ecodesign requirements for televisions (2) could amounts to annual electricity savings of 43 TWh by 2020, compared to the situation if no measures were taken.

(5)

The information provided on the label should be obtained through reliable, accurate and reproducible measurement procedures that take into account the recognised state-of-the-art measurement methods including, where available, harmonised standards adopted by the European standardisation bodies, as listed in Annex I to Directive 98/34/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 June 1998 laying down a procedure for the provision of information in the field of technical standards and regulations and of rules on Information Society services (3).

(6)

This Regulation should specify a uniform design and content for the label for televisions.

(7)

In addition, this Regulation should specify requirements as to the technical documentation and the fiche for televisions.

(8)

Moreover, this Regulation should specify requirements as to the information to be provided for any form of distance selling, advertisements and technical promotional material of televisions.

(9)

In order to encourage the manufacturing of energy efficient televisions suppliers wishing to place on the market televisions that can meet the requirements for higher energy efficiency classes should be allowed to provide labels showing those classes in advance of the date for mandatory display of such classes.

(10)

Provision should be made for a review of this Regulation taking into account technological progress,
