COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) 2019/2017

of 11 March 2019

supplementing Regulation (EU) 2017/1369 of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to energy labelling of household dishwashers and repealing Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1059/2010

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

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

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2017/1369 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 4 July 2017 setting a framework for energy labelling and repealing Directive 2010/30/EU (1), and in particular Article 11(5) and Article 16 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) 2017/1369 of the European Parliament and of the Council empowers the Commission to adopt delegated acts as regards the labelling or re-scaling of the labelling of product groups representing significant potential for energy savings and, where relevant, other resources.

(2)

Provisions on the energy labelling of household dishwashers were established by Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1059/2010 (2).

(3)

The Communication from the Commission COM(2016) 773 final (3) (ecodesign working plan) established by the Commission in application of Article 16(1) of Directive 2009/125/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (4) sets out the working priorities under the ecodesign and energy labelling framework for the period 2016-2019. The ecodesign working plan identifies the energy-related product groups to be considered as priorities for the undertaking of preparatory studies and eventual adoption of implementing measures, as well as the review of Commission Regulation (EU) No 1016/2010 (5) and Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1059/2010.

(4)

Measures from the ecodesign working plan have an estimated potential to deliver in total more than 260 TWh of annual final energy savings in 2030, which is equivalent to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 100 million tonnes per year in 2030. Household dishwashers is one of the product groups listed in the working plan, with estimated annual electricity savings of 2,1 TWh, leading to GHG emission reductions of 0,7 Mt CO2 eq/year, and estimated water savings of 16 million m3 in 2030.

(5)

Household dishwashers are among the product groups mentioned in Article 11(5)(b) of Regulation (EU) 2017/1369 for which the Commission should adopt a delegated act to introduce an A to G rescaled label.

(6)

The Commission has reviewed Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1059/2010 as required by its Article 7 and analysed technical, environmental and economic aspects as well as the impact of user behaviour. The review was carried out in close cooperation with stakeholders and interested parties from the Union and third countries. The results of the review were made public and presented to the Consultation Forum established by Article 14 of Regulation (EU) 2017/1369.

(7)

The review concluded that there was a need to introduce revised energy labelling requirements for household dishwashers.

(8)

Non-household dishwashers have distinct characteristics and uses. They are subject to other regulatory work, in particular Directive 2006/42/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (6), and should not be included in the scope of this Regulation. This Regulation for household dishwashers should apply to dishwashers with the same technical characteristics, regardless of the setting they are used in.

(9)

The environmental aspects of household dishwashers that have been identified as significant for the purposes of this Regulation are energy and water consumption in the use phase, the generation of waste at the end of life, the emissions to air and water in the production phase due to the extraction and processing of raw materials and in the use phase because of the consumption of electricity.

(10)

It appears from the review that the electricity and water consumption of household dishwashers can be further reduced by implementing energy labelling measures focusing on better differentiating between products. This should give suppliers an incentive to further improve the energy and resource efficiency of household dishwashers while accelerating the market transformation towards more efficient technologies.

(11)

The energy labelling of household dishwashers enable consumers to make informed choices towards more energy and resource efficient appliances. The understanding and relevance of the information provided on the label have been confirmed through a specific consumer survey in line with Article 14(2) of Regulation (EU) 2017/1369.

(12)

Household dishwashers that are displayed at trade fairs should bear the energy label if the first unit of the model has already been placed on the market or is placed on the market on the trade fair.

(13)

The relevant product parameters should be measured using reliable, accurate and reproducible methods. Those methods should take into account recognised state-of-the-art measurement methods including, where available, harmonised standards adopted by the European standardisation bodies, as listed in Annex I to Regulation (EU) No 1025/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council (7).

(14)

Recognizing the growth of sales of energy-related product through web-stores and internet sales platforms, rather than directly from suppliers, it should be clarified that service providers of web-stores and internet sales platforms should be responsible for displaying the label provided by the supplier in proximity to the price. They should inform the supplier of that obligation, but should not be responsible for the accuracy or content of the label and the product information sheet provided. However, in application of Article 14(1)(b) of Directive 2000/31/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (8) on electronic commerce, such internet hosting platforms should act expeditiously to remove or to disable access to information about the product in question if they are aware of the non-compliance (e.g. missing, incomplete or incorrect label or product information sheet) for example if informed by the market surveillance authority. A supplier selling directly to end-users via its own website is covered by dealers' distance selling obligations referred to in Article 5 of Regulation (EU) 2017/1369.

(15)

The measures provided for in this Regulation were discussed by the Consultation Forum and with the Member States experts in accordance with Article 17 of Regulation (EU) 2017/1369.

(16)

Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1059/2010 should be repealed.

The duration of the eco programme (Tt) is expressed in hours and minutes and rounded to the nearest minute.

Airborne acoustical noise emissions is measured in dB(A) with respect to 1 pW and rounded to the nearest integer.

1.   ENERGY EFFICIENCY INDEX

For the calculation of the EEI of a household dishwasher model, the EPEC of the household dishwasher is compared to its SPEC.

(a)

The EEI is calculated as follows and rounded to one decimal place:

EEI = (EPEC/SPEC) × 100

where:

EPEC is the eco programme energy consumption of the household dishwasher, measured in kWh/cycle and rounded to three decimal places;

SPEC is the standard programme energy consumption of the household dishwasher.

(b)

The SPEC is calculated in kWh/cycle and rounded to three decimal places as follows:

(1)

for household dishwashers with rated capacity ps ≥ 10 and width > 50 cm:

SPEC = 0,025 × ps + 1,350

(2)

for household dishwashers with rated capacity ps ≤ 9 or width ≤ 50 cm:

SPEC = 0,090 × ps + 0,450

where ps is the number of place settings.

2.   CLEANING PERFORMANCE INDEX

For the calculation of the cleaning performance index (IC) of a household dishwasher model, the cleaning performance of the eco programme is compared to the cleaning performance of a reference dishwasher.

The IC is calculated as follows and rounded to two decimal places:

IC = exp (ln IC)

and

Formula

where:

CT,i is the cleaning performance of the eco programme of the household dishwasher under test for one test run (i), rounded to two decimal places;

CR,i is the cleaning performance of the reference dishwasher for one test run (i), rounded to two decimal places;

n is the number of test runs.

3.   DRYING PERFORMANCE INDEX

For the calculation of the drying performance index (ID) of a household dishwasher model, the drying performance of the eco programme is compared to the drying performance of the reference dishwasher.

The ID is calculated as follows and rounded to two decimal places:

ID = exp (ln ID)

and

Formula

where:

ID,i is the drying performance index of the eco programme of the household dishwasher under test for one test run (i);

n is the number of combined cleaning and drying test runs.

The ID,i is calculated as follows and rounded to two decimal places:

ln ID,i = ln (DT,i/DR,t)

where:

DT,i is the average drying performance score of the eco programme of the household dishwasher under test for one test run (i), rounded to two decimal places;

DR,t is the target drying score of the reference dishwasher, rounded to two decimal places.

4.   LOW POWER MODES

ANNEX IX

Verification procedure for market surveillance purposes

The verification tolerances set out in this Annex relate only to the verification of the measured parameters by Member State authorities and shall not be used by the supplier as an allowed tolerance to establish the values in the technical documentation. The values and classes on the label or in the product information sheet shall not be more favourable for the supplier than the values reported in the technical documentation.

Where a model has been designed to be able to detect it is being tested (e.g. by recognising the test conditions or test cycle), and to react specifically by automatically altering its performance during the test with the objective of reaching a more favourable level for any of the parameters specified in this Regulation or included in the technical documentation or included in any of the documentation provided, the model and all equivalent models shall be considered not compliant.

When verifying the compliance of a product model with the requirements laid down in this Regulation, the authorities of the Member States shall apply the following procedure:

(1)

The Member State authorities shall verify one single unit of the model.

(2)

The model shall be considered to comply with the applicable requirements if:

(a)

the values given in the technical documentation pursuant to point 3 of Article 3 of Regulation (EU) 2017/1369 (declared values), and, where applicable, the values used to calculate these values, are not more favourable for the supplier than the corresponding values given in the test reports; and

(b)

the values published on the label and in the product information sheet are not more favourable for the supplier than the declared values, and the indicated energy efficiency class and the airborne acoustical noise emission class are not more favourable for the supplier than the class determined by the declared values; and

(c)

when the Member State authorities test the unit of the model, the determined values (the values of the relevant parameters as measured in testing and the values calculated from these measurements) comply with the respective verification tolerances as given in Table 5.

(3)

If the results referred to in points 2(a) or (b) are 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(c) 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 equivalent models.

(5)

The model shall be considered to comply with the applicable requirements if for these three units the arithmetical mean of the determined values complies with the respective tolerances given in Table 5.

(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.

(7)

The Member State authorities shall provide all relevant information to the authorities of the other Member States and to the Commission without delay after a decision being taken on the non-compliance of the model according to points 3 and 6.

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

The Member State authorities shall only apply the verification tolerances that are set out in Table 5 and shall only use the procedure described in points 1 to 7 for the requirements referred to in this Annex. For the parameters in Table 5, no other tolerances, such as those set out in harmonised standards or in any other measurement method, shall be applied.
