COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) No 518/2014

of 5 March 2014

amending Commission Delegated Regulations (EU) No 1059/2010, (EU) No 1060/2010, (EU) No 1061/2010, (EU) No 1062/2010, (EU) No 626/2011, (EU) No 392/2012, (EU) No 874/2012, (EU) No 665/2013, (EU) No 811/2013 and (EU) No 812/2013 with regard to labelling of energy-related products on the internet

(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 Articles 7 and 10 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Directive 2010/30/EU requires the Commission to lay down details relating to the labelling of energy-related products by means of delegated acts which contain measures that ensure that potential end-users are provided with the information specified on the label and in the product fiche in case of distance selling, including mail order, by catalogue, telemarketing or through the internet.

(2)

Currently, it is specified that in the case of distance selling the information on the label is to be presented in a specific order. However, there is currently no requirement to display the label itself or the product fiche. Therefore, the ability of end-users to make better informed decisions about their purchases is affected in the case of distance selling because they are neither guided by the colour scale of the label, nor are they informed as to which energy labelling class is the best for the product group or provided with the additional information which is contained in the fiche.

(3)

Distance selling through the internet is increasingly becoming a significant share of the sales of energy-related products. When selling through the internet, it is possible to display the label and the fiche without involving an additional administrative burden. Therefore, dealers should display the label and fiche when selling through the internet.

(4)

For the label and fiche to be displayed on the internet, suppliers should for each model of an energy-related product provide dealers with an electronic version of the label and the fiche, e.g. through making them available on a website where they can be downloaded by dealers.

(5)

In order to implement the requirements of this Regulation as part of normal business cycles, suppliers should be obliged to make the label and fiche available electronically only for new models, including upgrades of existing models, which in practical terms means those with a new model identifier. For existing models supply of an electronic label and fiche should be on a voluntary basis.

(6)

Since displaying the label and the fiche next to the product may require more screen space, it should be allowed to have them displayed using a nested display.

(7)

Commission Delegated Regulations (EU) No 1059/2010 (2), (EU) No 1060/2010 (3), (EU) No 1061/2010 (4), (EU) No 1062/2010 (5), (EU) No 626/2011 (6), (EU) No 392/2012 (7), (EU) No 874/2012 (8), (EU) No 665/2013 (9), (EU) No 811/2013 (10), and (EU) No 812/2013 (11) should therefore be amended accordingly,
