COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) No 1059/2010

of 28 September 2010

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

(Text with EEA relevance)



Article 1

Subject matter and scope

This Regulation establishes requirements for the labelling of and the provision of supplementary product information on electric mains-operated household dishwashers and electric mains-operated dishwashers that can also be powered by batteries, including those sold for non-household use and built-in household dishwashers.

Article 2

Definitions

In addition to the definitions laid down in Article 2 of Directive 2010/30/EU, the following definitions shall apply for the purpose of this Regulation:

(1) 

‘household dishwasher’ means a machine which cleans, rinses, and dries dishware, glassware, cutlery and cooking utensils by chemical, mechanical, thermal, and electric means and which is designed to be used principally for non-professional purposes;

(2) 

‘built-in household dishwasher’ means a household dishwasher intended to be installed in a cabinet, a prepared recess in a wall or a similar location, requiring furniture finishing;

(3) 

‘place settings’ means a defined set of crockery, glass and cutlery for use by one person;

(4) 

‘rated capacity’ means the maximum number of place settings together with the serving pieces, as stated by the supplier, which can be treated in a household dishwasher on the programme selected, when loaded in accordance with the supplier’s instructions;

(5) 

‘programme’ means a series of operations that are pre-defined and are declared as suitable by the supplier for specified levels of soil or type of load, or both, and together form a complete cycle;

(6) 

‘programme time’ means the time that elapses from the initiation of the programme until the completion of the programme, excluding any end-user-programmed delay;

(7) 

‘cycle’ means a complete cleaning, rinsing, and drying process, as defined for the selected programme;

(8) 

‘off-mode’ means a condition where the household dishwasher is switched off using appliance controls or switches accessible to and intended for operation by the end-user during normal use to attain the lowest power consumption that may persist for an indefinite time while the household dishwasher is connected to a power source and used in accordance with the supplier’s instructions; where there is no control or switch accessible to the end-user, ‘off-mode’ means the condition reached after the household dishwasher reverts to a steady-state power consumption on its own;

(9) 

‘left-on mode’ means the lowest power consumption mode that may persist for an indefinite time after completion of the programme and unloading of the household dishwasher without any further intervention by the end-user;

(10) 

‘equivalent household dishwasher’ means a model of household dishwasher placed on the market with the same rated capacity, technical and performance characteristics, energy and water consumption and airborne acoustical noise emissions as another model of household dishwasher placed on the market under a different commercial code number by the same supplier;

(11) 

‘end-user’ means a consumer buying or expected to buy a household dishwasher;

(12) 

‘point of sale’ means a location where household dishwashers are displayed or offered for sale, hire or hire-purchase.

Article 3

Responsibilities of suppliers

Suppliers shall ensure that:

(a) 

each household dishwasher is supplied with a printed label in the format and containing information as set out in Annex I;

(b) 

a product fiche, as set out in Annex II, is made available;

(c) 

the technical documentation as set out in Annex III is made available on request to the authorities of the Member States and to the Commission;

(d) 

any advertisement for a specific model of household dishwasher contains the energy efficiency class, if the advertisement discloses energy-related or price information;

(e) 

any technical promotional material concerning a specific model of household dishwasher which describes its specific technical parameters includes the energy efficiency class of that model;

▼M1

(f) 

an electronic label in the format and containing the information set out in Annex I is made available to dealers for each household dishwasher model placed on the market from 1 January 2015 with a new model identifier. It may also be made available to dealers for other household dishwasher models;

(g) 

an electronic product fiche as set out in Annex II is made available to dealers for each household dishwasher model placed on the market from 1 January 2015 with a new model identifier. It may also be made available to dealers for other household dishwasher models.

▼B

Article 4

Responsibilities of dealers

Dealers shall ensure that:

(a) 

each household dishwasher, at the point of sale, bears the label provided by suppliers in accordance with Article 3(a) on the outside of the front or top of the household dishwasher, in such a way as to be clearly visible;

▼M1

(b) 

household dishwashers offered for sale, hire or hire- purchase where the end-user cannot be expected to see the household dishwasher displayed, are marketed with the information provided by suppliers in accordance with Annex IV. Where the offer is made through the internet and an electronic label and an electronic product fiche have been made available in accordance with Article 3(f) and 3(g) the provisions of Annex VIII shall apply instead;

▼B

(c) 

any advertisement for a specific model of household dishwasher contains a reference to its energy efficiency class, if the advertisement discloses energy-related or price information;

(d) 

any technical promotional material concerning a specific model of household dishwasher which describes its specific technical parameters includes a reference to the energy efficiency class of that model.

Article 5

Measurement methods

The information to be provided pursuant to Articles 3 and 4 shall be obtained by reliable, accurate and reproducible measurement methods, which take into account the recognised state-of-the-art measurement methods.

Article 6

Verification procedure for market surveillance purposes

Member States shall apply the procedure laid down in Annex V when assessing the conformity of the declared energy efficiency class, the annual energy consumption, annual water consumption, drying efficiency index, programme time, power consumption in off-mode and left-on mode, duration of the left-on mode and airborne acoustical noise emissions.

Article 7

Revision

The Commission shall review this Regulation in the light of technological progress no later than four years after its entry into force. The review shall in particular assess the verification tolerances set out in Annex V.

Article 8

Repeal

Directive 97/17/EC shall be repealed from 20 December 2011.
