DescriptionVerification tolerances in product-specific delegated acts under the Energy Labelling Directive (2010/30/EU) 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 higher energy efficiency classes, or to declare better performance. To tackle the problem and clarify the intended use of verification tolerances, a draft horizontal measure amending the existing energy labelling delegated acts is proposed.
