The European Business Association welcomes adoption of eco-design requirements for washing and dish-washing machines

The EBA welcomes the adoption of Government Resolutions No.738 and No.736 dated August 14, 2019 that adopted the Technical Regulations on Eco-Design for washing and dish-washing machines accordingly.

The EBA Consumer Electronics Committee supports the necessity for harmonization of technical regulation in Ukraine with the relevant regulations of the European Union, including ones in the field of eco-design. At the same time, after analysing the draft Technical Regulations, the EBA experts made a number of suggestions to remedy some inaccuracies and improve a number of provisions taking into account the relevant EU practices.

Majority of EBA Committee proposals have been taken into account, in particular regarding (1) the ability to use symbols during labelling of washing machines, e.g. to facilitate identification of standard washing program; (2) amendments to the special eco-design requirements and to the calculation of the energy efficiency index for dish-washing machines.

We are grateful to the State Agency for taking into account proposals of the business society and hope for further constructive cooperation.
