Household dishwashers are subject to new and revised ecodesign* requirements and energy labelling* rules. Ecodesign and energy labelling go hand-in-hand providing European consumers with valuable information to enable them to make an informed choice and eventually increase the market for more energy efficient products.
Regulation (EU) 2019/2022 sets out ecodesign requirements, pursuant to Directive 2009/125/EC, for the sale of or putting into service electric mains-operated household dishwashers, including built-in household dishwashers and electric mains-operated household dishwashers that can also be powered by batteries. It amends Regulation (EC) No 1275/2008 and repeals Regulation (EU) No 1016/2010.
Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/2017 sets out rules on the labelling of, and supply of additional product information on, these appliances. It supplements Regulation (EU) 2017/1369 and repeals Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1059/2010.
The Regulation (EU) 2019/2022:
Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/2017 supplements Regulation (EU) 2017/1369 on energy labelling and sets out:
The energy efficiency class and the acoustic airborne noise emission class which are based on an index set out in Annex II.
Suppliers must ensure that:
Dealers must ensure that:
Internet hosting platforms must ensure that the electronic label and electronic product information sheet provided by the dealer are clearly displayed, according to Annex VIII, on all household dishwashers sold directly through the site.
National authorities apply the verification procedure laid down in Annex IX when carrying out market surveillance checks.
The European Commission must review these regulations in the light of technological progress 6 years after the entry into force including the possibility of addressing circular economy objectives.
They both apply from 1 March 2021.
