Ecodesign requirements

Ecodesign requirements apply to welding equipment sold in the EU, which consists of business-to-business products used in industry sectors like construction, energy and transport. 

The objective of the regulation is to limit the environmental impact of these products in a way that is sustainable for business and effective for the users. This should be achieved by proposing a set of requirements affecting welding equipment as of January 2023 on mandatory efficiency limits for the power supply as well as on circular economy aspects (spare parts availability and information on the quantities of welding wire or filler material used). Mandatory requirements on the provision of information regarding performance, efficiency and repair and disposal will apply as of January 2021.
