ErP (Energy-related Products) 2009 / 125 / EC Tests

ErP (Energy-related Products) 2009 / 125 / EC Certification

Energy Related Products Directive (ERP) 2009 / 125 / EC changed the Eco Design Directive (EuP) at November 2009 and affected all energy related products sold within the EU. According to the European Commission, an energy-related product is any product that uses energy eden affecting energy consumption during use veya or an energy-saving product.
All products have an impact on the environment throughout the entire life cycle, such as material selection and resource use, production practices, energy use and final disposal or recycling. The EU Commission estimates that at the design stage of a product, more than 80% of the environmental impact of the product is determined. This makes eco design considerations in consumer products an important element of general efforts to reduce the environmental impact of a product. At the same time, eco design issues cannot jeopardize the safety or functionality of a product and do not adversely affect its affordability for consumers.

What is ERP
Within the scope of the Ecodesign Regulation enacted by the European Union, the regulation published as EuP (Energy using Products) in 2005 and 2006 was updated under the name ErP (Energy-related Products) as of 2009.
The European Union's directive on eco design requirements for energy-related products (also known as the ErP or Ecodesign Directive, 2009 / 125 / EC) provides consistent EU-wide requirements for improving the environmental performance of energy-related products. The scope of the ErP Directive includes:

Energy-using products (EUPs)
For example, products that use, produce, transfer, or measure energy (including electricity, gas, and fossil fuels):
Computers, monitors, printers and other office equipment
Consumer electronics such as televisions, set-top boxes and radios
Household appliances such as dishwashers, washing machines and tumble dryers
Refrigeration and cooling devices
Lamps and lighting fixtures
Energy related products (ERPs)
Products that do not use energy but affect energy consumption and thus contribute to energy savings. ERPs including windows and other building materials and plumbing fittings.

The ErP Directive provides a regulatory framework for eco design requirements. Specific technical requirements are detailed in the Implementation of the Measures published by the EU Commission; each Application Group addresses the eco design requirements for individual product groups. Applicable Application Products that are found to meet the requirements specified in the Implementing Measure may apply the CE Mark to the product as an indication of compliance with the essential requirements of the Directive.

EU Energy Label
The EU Energy Label was also established to evaluate a device from a range of energy efficiency classes and provide customers with other useful information while browsing different device models. Most white goods, lighting packaging and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) products must have an EU Energy Label clearly displayed when presented for sale or rent and also listed in the catalogs and websites when applicable.

Scope of ERP
Minimum seasonal heating efficiency
Minimum water heating energy efficiency
Maximum allowable noise level for heat pumps
Maximum permissible NOx emission for heating devices
Minimum information on product

Purpose of ERP
To minimize the negative effects of energy related devices on the environment.
