COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2022/622

of 7 April 2022

amending Implementing Decision (EU) 2019/1326 as regards the harmonised standards for electromagnetic compatibility of electricity metering equipment and circuit breakers for household and similar uses

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1025/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2012 on European standardisation, amending Council Directives 89/686/EEC and 93/15/EEC and Directives 94/9/EC, 94/25/EC, 95/16/EC, 97/23/EC, 98/34/EC, 2004/22/EC, 2007/23/EC, 2009/23/EC and 2009/105/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council and repealing Council Decision 87/95/EEC and Decision No 1673/2006/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (1), and in particular Article 10(6) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In accordance with Article 13 of Directive 2014/30/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council (2), electrical equipment which is in conformity with harmonised standards or parts thereof, the references of which have been published in the Official Journal of the European Union, is to be presumed to be in conformity with the essential requirements set out in Annex I to that Directive covered by those standards or parts thereof.

(2)

By Implementing Decision C(2016) 7641 (3), the Commission made a request to the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN), the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardisation (Cenelec) and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) for the drafting and revision of harmonised standards for electromagnetic compatibility in support of Directive 2014/30/EU.

(3)

On the basis of the request set out in Implementing Decision C(2016) 7641, CEN and Cenelec drafted the harmonised standard EN IEC 62053-24:2021 and the amendment thereto, EN IEC 62053-24:2021/A11:2021, for static meters for fundamental component reactive energy (classes 0,5S, 1S, 1, 2 and 3).

(4)

On the basis of the request set out in Implementing Decision C(2016) 7641, CEN and Cenelec revised the following harmonised standards, the references of which are published by Commission Communication (OJ C 173, 13.5.2016(4): EN 62053-21:2003, EN 62053-22:2003, EN 62053-23:2003 and EN 61009-1:2012.

(5)

This resulted in the adoption of, respectively, the following harmonised standards and amendments thereto: EN IEC 62053-21:2021 and EN IEC 62053-21:2021/A11:2021 for static meters for AC active energy (classes 0,5, 1 and 2); EN IEC 62053-22:2021 and EN IEC 62053-22:2021/A11:2021 for static meters for AC active energy (classes 0,1S, 0,2S and 0,5S); EN IEC 62053-23:2021 and EN IEC 62053-23:2021/A11:2021 for static meters for reactive energy (classes 2 and 3); EN 61009-1:2012 and EN 61009-1:2012/A13:2021 for residual current operated circuit-breakers with integral overcurrent protection for household and similar uses.

(6)

The Commission, together with CEN and Cenelec, has assessed whether the harmonised standards EN IEC 62053-24:2021, as amended by EN IEC 62053-24:2021/A11:2021, EN IEC 62053-21:2021, as amended by EN IEC 62053-21:2021/A11:2021, EN IEC 62053-22:2021, as amended by EN IEC 62053-22:2021/A11:2021, EN IEC 62053-23:2021, as amended by EN IEC 62053-23:2021/A11:2021 and EN 61009-1:2012, as amended by EN 61009-1:2012/A13:2021, comply with the request set out in Implementing Decision C(2016) 7641.

(7)

The harmonised standards EN IEC 62053-24:2021, as amended by EN IEC 62053-24:2021/A11:2021, EN IEC 62053-21:2021, as amended by EN IEC 62053-21:2021/A11:2021, EN IEC 62053-22:2021, as amended by EN IEC 62053-22:2021/A11:2021, EN IEC 62053-23:2021, as amended by EN IEC 62053-23:2021/A11:2021, and EN 61009-1:2012, as amended by EN 61009-1:2012/A13:2021, satisfy the essential requirements which they aim to cover and which are set out in Directive 2014/30/EU. It is therefore appropriate to publish the references of those harmonised standards, together with the relevant amending standards thereto, in the Official Journal of the European Union.

(8)

Annex I to Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2019/1326 (5) lists the references of harmonised standards conferring a presumption of conformity with Directive 2014/30/EU. In order to ensure that the references of harmonised standards drafted in support of Directive 2014/30/EU are listed in one act, the references of those standards, together with the references of the relevant amending standards thereto, should be included in that Annex.

(9)

It is therefore necessary to withdraw from the Official Journal of the European Union the references of the following harmonised standards published by Communication (OJ C 173, 13.5.2016): EN 62053-21:2003, EN 62053-22:2003, EN 62053-23:2003 and EN 61009-1:2012.

(10)

Annex II to Implementing Decision (EU) 2019/1326 lists the references of harmonised standards drafted in support of Directive 2014/30/EU that are withdrawn from the C series of the Official Journal of the European Union. It is therefore appropriate to include those references in that Annex.

(11)

In order to give manufacturers sufficient time to prepare for the application of harmonised standards EN IEC 62053-21:2021, as amended by EN IEC 62053-21:2021/A11:2021, EN IEC 62053-22:2021, as amended by EN IEC 62053-22:2021/A11:2021, EN IEC 62053-23:2021, as amended by EN IEC 62053-23:2021/A11:2021, and EN 61009-1:2012, as amended by EN 61009-1:2012/A13:2021, it is necessary to defer the withdrawal of the references of the following harmonised standards: EN 62053-21:2003, EN 62053-22:2003, EN 62053-23:2003 and EN 61009-1:2012.

(12)

Implementing Decision (EU) 2019/1326 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(13)

Compliance with a harmonised standard confers a presumption of conformity with the corresponding essential requirements set out in Union harmonisation legislation from the date of publication of the reference of such standard in the Official Journal of the European Union. This Decision should therefore enter into force on the day of its publication,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:
