EPREL – Energy labels must be replaced by 18 March 2021

In the first two weeks of March (1 – 18 March 2021), retailers must replace labels for mains operated refrigerators with direct sales function, mains operated refrigerators between 10 and 1500 litres in volume, mains operated household dishwashers, television sets, monitors, certain signage displays, washing machines and washer-dryers. This concerns both the products in shops and products offered on the Internet. Before that, only old energy labels may be shown, and afterwards only new ones. Missing labels must be requested from the relevant suppliers. If there is no new label, then the equipment affected must be sold off by 1 December 2021. Please bear in mind that the new labels must have corresponding test reports that must be placed in the EPREL database. If these are lacking, then new labelling is not possible. Preparing a test report is time-consuming, so please act promptly.
