2012/C 206/05

According to Annex I.1.(1) of the Commission Regulation (EU) No 1015/2010 (1) implementing Directive 2009/125/EC (2), the cycles which clean normally soiled cotton laundry (hereafter ‘standard cotton programmes’) at 40 °C and 60 °C shall be used for the calculation of the energy consumption and other parameters for household washing machines. These cycles shall be clearly identifiable on the programme selection device of the household washing machines or the household washing machines display, if any, or both, and indicated as ‘standard 60 °C cotton programme’ and ‘standard 40 °C cotton programme’.

To facilitate the clear identification of the relevant standard cotton programmes or programmes setting(s) on the programme selection device of the household washing machines or the household washing machines display, the following transitional symbols providing presumption of conformity should apply:

for the ‘standard 60 °C cotton programme’:

for the ‘standard 40 °C cotton programme’:

for the ‘standard cotton programme’ in appliances where the selection device of the programme is separate from the selection device of the temperature:

In appliances where programme and temperature are selected using separate devices, the three arrows must be present on the selection panel.

These transitional symbols will ultimately be replaced by symbols provided in harmonised standard(s), for the purposes of compliance and verification of compliance with the requirements of the Commission Regulation (EU) No 1015/2010, the reference numbers of which have been published in the Official Journal of the European Union in accordance with Articles 9 and 10 of Directive 2009/125/EC.
