The Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) adopted in August 2019 the Technical Regulation TR 048/2019 with energy efficiency requirements for energy-consuming products to be marketed in the EAEU member countries. In January this year, the Council decided to postpone enactment of this regulation till 1 September 2022.
The postponement shall give manufacturers time to ensure a smooth transition to the unified technical regulation. Besides, the decision accounted for the current restrictions caused by the Corona pandemi.
According to the Council Decision No. 114 from 2019, the requirements for 18 types of electrical appliances will be reinforced with performance of energy consumption and some with energy labelling.
The requirements are largely based on EU’s latest energy regulations and entail self-declaration of conformity (DoC) for most of the product types, including household appliances such as refrigerators, washing machines and vacuum cleaners as well as external power supplies. Certification is required for certain types of lighting equipment and for computers & servers.
