As of 1 January 2019, suppliers (manufacturers, importers or authorised representatives) need to register their appliances, which require an energy label in the European Product Database for Energy Labelling (EPREL), before selling them on the European market.

Consult the database

Consumers will be able to search the product database for energy labels and product information sheets later (at the end of 2020).

Register a product

The product information that suppliers need to enter in the database relates to the energy label, technical documentation and compliance monitoring.

The EPREL database includes guidelines on how to manage the entire registration process. Before starting registering their products, suppliers need a EU LOGIN account.

For products placed on the EU market

  • from 1 January 2019, their registration must be completed before placing any product on the European market

  • between 1 August 2017 and 31 December 2018, their registration had to be completed until 30 June 2019

  • before 1 August 2017 and which are no longer marketed after this date, their registration is on a voluntary basis (at any time)

The energy labelling requirements for individual product groups are established under the EU's Energy Labelling framework Regulation (2017/1369). For the following product groups registration is mandatory:

Five product groups will be 'rescaled' from 1 March 2021 (fridges, dishwashers, washing machines, electronic displays including televisions and lamps). A guidance note on the labels rescaling and transition periods is available at the attention of manufacturers and retailers.

Energy labelling tools

These energy label templates (InDesign) can be used to create and print high resolution energy labels for all product groups. 

The energy label generator is a complementary tool for creating a tailor-made energy label (e.g. for printing or for on-line publication), deriving from the regulations adopted before 2016.
