ECODESIGN COMPLIANCE and circular Economy

Energy Related Products (ErP)

Energy Efficiency Compliance ErP

The European Union Directive 2009/125/EC applies to energy related products (ErP) that 'represent a significant volume of sales and trade’ (art. 15, paragraph 2(a)).  


Enviropass can assist you with ErP assessment and testing.


Electrical and electronic devices, subassemblies and components are energy related products since they have ‘an impact on energy consumption during use’ (art. 2, definition 1).


The objective of this Directive, as well as its associated European Commission Regulations for enforcement, is to reduce the environmental impact of ErP.


Enforcement actions include consumption efficiency targets, stand-by/off-mode functions, and other eco-design specifications for certain product categories such as routers, interfaces, electric motors, etc.



Importantly, these energy efficiency requirements are part of the CE marking obligations.

Standby mode, energy consumption, and ecodesign

Specific ecodesign requirements also apply to in-scope European electrical and electronic household and office equipment, under Regulation No 1275/2008 implementing Directive 2005/32/EC for standby & off mode, networked standby, as well as electric power consumption. 


Enviropass helps in finding out the applicable ecodesign requirements and test your prototypes

External Power Suppliers

External Power Supply Energy Efficiency

According to the International Efficiency Marking Protocol for External Power Supplies, which is the reference for the requirements in major markets, such as the European Union, the United StatesCanada or Australia.


Are the power supplies you use compliant with the energy efficiency standards and marking requirements ?
