On 19 May 2010, the EU adopted the Directive 2010/30/EU on energy labels. Energy labels help consumers choosing products which save energy and thus money. They also provide incentives for the industry to develop and invest in energy efficient product design.
Delegated Regulation (EU)
The energy labels are provided with the view to help the implementation of the labelling delegated Regulations. In case of discrepancies with the delegated Regulations, the latter prevail. Neither the EU institutions and bodies nor any person acting on their behalf may be held responsible for any inappropriate use of the energy labels.
