The UK government department responsible for ecodesign and energy product policy introduced a new service. It allows manufacturers or sellers of household appliances and consumer electronics to create their own energy labels for the products that are going to be placed on the UK market.
It is possible to design an energy label for the following categories of the product:
Thus, before placing a power consuming device on the UK market, it must be accompanied with a produced energy labels, fiches according to the Regulation of the UK, and the relevant technical documentation that must be available for 5 years after the manufacturing of the product has stopped.
The fiche must be included in all brochures related to the product.
Energy labels must be clearly visible and attached to the product.
The energy label must include:
model number of the product and manufacturer's name
amount of energy consumed within a year calculated in kWh/annum
specific data according to its type in the pictogram format
