ErP Certification

As an accredited testing laboratory, we’ve helped thousands of manufacturers complete testing for their products and achieve Energy-related Products (ErP) certification.

1. ErP certification

The ErP Directive is a European Union (EU) regulation that was put in place to help reduce energy consumption and promote energy efficiency in products.

2. Relationship between ErP Directive and CE marking

The ErP Directive requires that energy-related products comply with specific energy efficiency requirements before they can be sold in the EU. The CE marking is a mandatory requirement for all energy-related products sold in the EU, including those that comply with the ErP Directive.

3. EU new energy label

Below is a sample energy label for a fridge, and it contains the following information:

  • QR code with link to EPREL;
  • Energy efficiency class of this product model;
  • Energy efficiency classes;
  • Energy consumption;
  • Indication of additional non-energy parameters (noise emissions, water consumption, capacity, repairability or reliability class, etc.);
    Reference to the regulation.

For energy labels design in different countries and energy labels for each product, please visit this page.
