DescriptionVerification tolerances in product-specific implementing measures under the Ecodesign Directive (2009/125/EC) are provided for the use of national market surveillance authorities verifying compliance, to account for the inevitable differences in the measurement equipment across Europe. However, some manufacturers apply the tolerances to the values they measure, in order to declare non-compliant appliances as compliant, or to declare better performance. To tackle the problem and clarify the intended use of verification tolerances, a draft horizontal measure amending the existing ecodesign regulations is proposed.
