COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) 2021/340

of 17 December 2020

amending Delegated Regulations (EU) 2019/2013, (EU) 2019/2014, (EU) 2019/2015, (EU) 2019/2016, (EU) 2019/2017 and (EU) 2019/2018 with regard to energy labelling requirements for electronic displays, household washing machines and household washer-dryers, light sources, refrigerating appliances, household dishwashers, and refrigerating appliances with a direct sales function

(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 empowers the Commission to adopt delegated acts.

(2)

Provisions on the energy labelling of electronic displays, household washing machines and household washer-dryers, light sources, refrigerating appliances, household dishwashers and refrigerating appliances with a direct sales function were established by Commission Delegated Regulations (EU) 2019/2013 (2), (EU) 2019/2014 (3), (EU) 2019/2015 (4), (EU) 2019/2016 (5), (EU) 2019/2017 (6) and (EU) 2019/2018 (7) (thereafter the ‘amended Regulations’).

(3)

In order to avoid confusion for manufacturers and national market surveillance authorities about the values to be included in technical documentation, uploaded in the product database and in relation to verification tolerances, a definition of declared values should be added.

(4)

Technical documentation should be sufficient to allow market surveillance authorities to check the values published on the label and in the product information sheet. In accordance with Article 12 of Regulation (EU) 2017/1369, declared values of the model should be entered into the product database.

(5)

The relevant product parameters should be measured or calculated 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 (8).

(6)

Products containing light sources from which these light sources cannot be removed for verification without damaging one or more of them, should be tested as light sources for compliance assessment and verification.

(7)

For electronic displays, harmonised standards have not yet been developed, and relevant existing standards do not cover all necessary regulated parameters, notably as regards High Dynamic Range and Automatic Brightness Control. Until the adoption of harmonised standards by the European standardisation bodies for those product groups, the transitional methods set out in this Regulation or other reliable, accurate and reproducible methods, which take into account the generally recognised state-of-the-art, should be used in order to ensure the comparability of measurements and calculations.

(8)

Vertical static-air cabinets with non-transparent doors are professional refrigerating appliances and are defined in Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/1094 (9), and therefore should be excluded from Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/2018.

(9)

The terminology and testing methods of use in Regulation (EU) 2019/2018 are consistent with the terminology and testing methods adopted in EN 16901, EN 16902, EN 50597 and EN ISO 23953-2 and EN 16838.

(10)

The measures provided for in this Regulation were discussed by the Consultation Forum and with the Member States experts in accordance with Articles 14 and 17 of Regulation (EU) 2017/1369.

(11)

Delegated Regulations (EU) 2019/2013, (EU) 2019/2014, (EU) 2019/2015, (EU) 2019/2016, (EU) 2019/2017 and (EU) 2019/2018 should therefore be amended accordingly,

A, B and C are the weighting factors as described in point 2.1(c).’;

(f)

point 9 is replaced by the following:

‘9.   LOW POWER MODES

Where applicable, the power consumption of the off mode (Po), standby mode (Psm) and delay start (Pds) are measured, expressed in W, and rounded to two decimal places.

During measurements of the power consumption in low power modes, the following shall be checked and recorded:

the display or not of information,

the activation or not of a network connection.

If a household washing machine or a household washer-dryer provides for a wrinkle guard function, this operation shall be interrupted by opening the household washing machine or household washer-dryer door, or any other appropriate intervention 15 minutes before the measurement of the power consumption.’;

(g)

the following point 11 is added at the end:

‘11.   SPIN SPEED

The spin speed of a household washing machine and of the washing cycle of a household washer-dryer shall be measured or calculated at the highest spin speed option for the eco 40-60 programme using harmonised standards the reference numbers of which have been published for this purpose in the Official Journal of the European Union, or other reliable, accurate and reproducible methods, which take into account the generally recognised state-of-the-art, and rounded to the nearest integer.’;

(b)

points 2, 3 and 4 are replaced by the following:

‘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 three decimal places:

IC = exp (ln IC)

and

ln IC = (1/n) × Σn i = 1 ln (CT,i/CR,i)

where:

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

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

ID = exp (ln ID)

and

ln ID = (1/n) × Σn i = 1 ln(ID,i)

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 three 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 three decimal places;

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

4.   LOW POWER MODES

Where applicable, the power consumption of the off mode (Po), standby mode (Psm) and delay start (Pds) are measured, expressed in W, and rounded to two decimal places.

During measurements of the power consumption in low power modes, the following shall be checked and recorded:

the display or not of information,

the activation or not of a network connection.’;
