EPREL: Dealers will be prosecuted without a new label

Our partner law firm IT Recht Kanzlei reports that if a supplier – contrary to an actual obligation – does not provide new labels and product data sheets, distributors can be asked to cease and desist and be admonished if they have not received the necessary support from the supplier due to the latter's refusal and fail to implement the new labelling for products subject to mandatory labelling.

As take-e-way reported on 28.10.2021, BVT e.V. reminds that from 2 December 2021, electrical appliances – without the new EU energy label – may no longer be sold or should be sold quickly if the manufacturer does not provide you with a new EU energy label on request.

Our partner law firm IT Recht Kanzlei reports that if a supplier – contrary to an actual obligation – fails to provide new labels and product data sheets, distributors can be requested to cease and desist and be admonished if they have not received the necessary support from the supplier due to the latters’ refusal and do not implement the new labelling for products that are subject to labelling requirements.

“Claims for injunctive relief under competition law do not in fact presuppose any fault on the part of the dealer, i.e., it is irrelevant whether or not the dealer is responsible for the lack of labelling,” writes the law firm IT Recht Kanzlei.
