COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) No 65/2014

of 1 October 2013

supplementing Directive 2010/30/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to the energy labelling of domestic ovens and range hoods

(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 that offer significant potential for energy savings and present a wide disparity in performance levels with equivalent functionality.

(2)

The energy used by electric ovens accounts for a significant part of total energy demand in the Union. In addition to the energy efficiency improvements already achieved, the scope for further reducing the energy consumption of these appliances is substantial.

(3)

Provisions for the energy labelling of household electric ovens were established by Commission Directive 2002/40/EC of 8 May 2002 implementing Council Directive 92/75/EEC with regard to energy labelling of household electric ovens (2).

(4)

Technological development in the field of domestic cooking appliances has been rapid in recent years. The ecodesign preparatory studies showed that domestic gas ovens and range hoods show significant potential for energy savings. In order to ensure that the energy labels provide dynamic incentives for suppliers to further improve the energy efficiency of these appliances and to accelerate market transformation towards energy-efficient technologies, Directive 2002/40/EC should be repealed and new provisions should be laid down.

(5)

The provisions of this Regulation should apply to domestic electric and gas ovens, including when incorporated into cookers, and to domestic electric range hoods.

(6)

This Regulation should introduce a revised energy efficiency scale from A+++ to D for all ovens concerned and a new energy efficiency scale from A to G with a ‘+’ added on at the top of the scale every two years until the A+++ class has been reached for domestic range hoods, these further classes should be added to accelerate the market penetration of high-efficiency appliances.

(7)

The combined effect of the provisions set out in this Regulation, and in Commission Regulation (EU) No 66/2014 (3) on the ecodesign requirements for domestic ovens, hobs and range hoods is expected to result in annual primary energy savings of 27 PJ/a in 2020, increasing up to 60 PJ/a by 2030.

(8)

The sound power level of a domestic range hood can be an important consideration for end-users. Information on sound power levels should be included on the labels of domestic range hoods, to enable end-users to make an informed decision.

(9)

The information provided on the respective labels should be obtained through reliable, accurate and reproducible calculation and measurement methods that take into account the recognised state-of-the-art calculation and measurement methods including, where available, harmonised standards adopted by the European standardisation organisations, as listed in Annex I to Regulation (EU) No 1025/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2012 on European standardisation (4).

(10)

This Regulation should specify a uniform design and content for the labelling of domestic ovens, including when incorporated into cookers, and domestic electric range hoods.

(11)

This Regulation should specify requirements as to the technical documentation and the fiche for domestic ovens, including when incorporated into cookers, and domestic electric range hoods, also when used for non-domestic purposes.

(12)

This Regulation should specify requirements as to the information to be provided for any form of distance selling, advertising and technical promotional material of domestic ovens (including when incorporated into cookers) and domestic electric range hoods, also when used for non-domestic purposes.

(13)

It is appropriate to provide for a review of the provisions of this Regulation taking into account technological progress, and in particular the effectiveness and the appropriateness of the approach followed for the determination of the domestic ovens energy efficiency classes,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

If the result referred to in point 2(a) is not achieved, the model and all equivalent models shall be considered not to comply with this Regulation.

4.

If the result referred to in point 2(b) is not achieved, the Member State authorities shall select three additional units of the same model for testing. As an alternative, the three additional units selected may be of one or more different models which have been listed as equivalent product in the supplier’s technical documentation.

5.

The model shall be considered to comply with the applicable requirements if testing of the relevant model parameters listed in Table 6 shows compliance for all of those parameters.

6.

If the result referred to in point 5 is not achieved, the model and all equivalent models shall be considered not to comply with this Regulation. The Member State authorities shall provide the test results and other relevant information to the authorities of the other Member States and to the Commission within one month of the decision being taken on the non-compliance of the model.

Member State authorities shall use the measurement and calculation methods set out in Annex II.

The tolerances set in this Annex shall be applied only to the verification of the measured parameters by Member State authorities, representing the allowed variations of the measurement results of the verification tests, and shall not be used by the supplier in establishing the values in the technical documentation or in interpreting these values with a view to achieving a better labelling classification or to communicate better performance by any means.
