In November 2017, the EBA received draft Methodological Recommendations on application of Technical Regulations on Energy Labelling of Vacuum Cleaners that were elaborated by the State Agency on Energy Efficiency in accordance with proposals of the EBA Consumer Electronics Committee. In particular, the Committee proposed that Recommendations should foresee the following:
- manufactures could use harmonised EU standards for vacuum cleaner until Ukrainian versions of these standards will not be adopted;
- manufacturers could use power scale “A+++ – D” to indicate energy efficiency level of vacuum cleaner;
- manufacturers could print microfiche for vacuum cleaners on separate paper or on another side of energy label;
- Recommendations should be elaborated on the basis of relevant EU Guide, etc.
We are grateful to the Agency for taking into account our proposals and hope for further constructive cooperation in elaboration of energy labelling and eco-design regulations in Ukraine.
