Refrigerating appliances with a direct sales function
Draft Commission Regulation laying down ecodesign requirements for refrigerating appliances with a direct sales function pursuant to Directive 2009/125/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (10 pages + Annexes 13 pages, in English)
This draft Commission Regulation sets minimum energy performance, reparability, recyclability and information requirements for refrigerating appliances with a direct sales function (e.g. supermarket cabinets, beverage coolers, small ice-cream freezers, gelato-scooping cabinets and vending machines), as there exists a cost-effective potential to limit their energy consumption and improve their contribution to resource efficiency objectives. In accordance with Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC, products not meeting these requirements will not be allowed to be placed on the EU market. The draft Regulation is based on the findings of two technical, environmental and economic studies, which have been carried out with stakeholders.
