Draft Commission Regulation laying down ecodesign requirements for electronic displays pursuant to Directive 2009/125/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council, amending Commission Regulation (EC) No 1275/2008 and repealing Commission Regulation (EC) 642/2009 (and its accompanying annexes) (12 pages + Annexes 23 pages, in English)
This draft Commission Regulation applies to electronic displays (in particular televisions, monitors and signage displays) to be placed on the EU market.
The draft regulation lays down minimum energy performance requirements, in particular on maximum power demand in on-, standby-, network standby- and off-mode. No maximum power demand requirements in on-mode are laid down for signage displays.
The draft regulation also lays down requirements on resource efficiency-related aspects, including design to enhance extraction of key components, marking of plastic parts and a logo for the presence of mercury or cadmium. In accordance with the Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC, electronic displays not meeting these requirements will not be allowed to be placed on the EU market. The draft Regulation is based on the findings of technical, environmental and economic studies and takes into account the opinions of the different stakeholders.
