EU published COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 66/2014 under ErP directive for domestic ovens, hobs and range hoods, and Energy labelling COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 65/2014 for domestic ovens and range hoods
On 31 January, 2014 the European Union officially published:
COMMISION REGULATION (EU) No 66/2014 of 14 January 2014 under ErP Directive. This implementing Directive 2009/125/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council regulation with regard to ecodesign requirements for domestic ovens(using electricity and/or gas), hobs(electric stove, induction cooker, gas hob) and range hoods.
COMMISION REGULATION (EU) No 65/2014 of 1 October 2013 under ErP Directive. This implementing Directive 2010/30/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to the energy labelling of domestic ovens(using electricity and/or gas) and range hoods
Both regulations come into force on: 20. February 2014.
The (EU) No 66/2014 eco-design requirements apply in multiple steps over 1 to 5 years after the regulation comes into force.
Note: the regulation requires that compliance is proofed by measured data and calculation acc. to Annex II.
As of 20 February 2015, (EU) No 66/2014 requires:
-- For domestic ovens, Cavities of domestic ovens (including when incorporated in cookers) shall comply with maximum Energy Efficiency Index limits as indicated in Table 1.
-- For domestic hobs, the domestic hobs shall have the maximum energy consumption limits for electric hobs (EC electric hob ) and the minimum energy efficiency limits for gas-fired hobs (EE gas hob ) as indicated in Table 2.
-- For domestic range hoods,
the domestic range hoods shall have the maximum EEIhood (Energy Efficiency Index) and the minimum FDEhood limits (Fluid Dynamic Efficiency) as indicated in Table 3.
the domestic range hoods with a maximum air flow in any of the available settings higher than 650 m3 /h shall automatically revert to an air flow lower than or equal to 650 m3 /h in a time t limit.
meet the requirements of power consumption in low power mode.
range hoods which provide for lighting of the cooking surface, the average illumination of the lighting system on the cooking surface (E middle ) shall be higher than 40 lux when measured under standard conditions.
The (EU) No 65/2014 energy label requirements apply in multiple steps from 2015 to 2020.
As of 1 January, 2015, (EU) No 65/2014 requires:
For domestic electric ovens For domestic gas ovens For domestic range hoods
Note : The format of domestic range hoods label will be further adjusted in 2016, 2018, 2020.
