    Energy Efficiency Labelling Regulations

    July 1, 2019

    The European Commission has recently adopted new formats of Energy Efficiency Labelling for several product groups. As part of the European Union’s energy saving objectives and to provide clearer, simpler information to consumers, the new formats will provide a QR code link that consumers can scan to obtain additional product information. This official, non-commercial information will be entered by manufacturers into the associated European Product Database for Energy Labelling (EPREL), which will become available for consumers to view through the latter months of 2019. As of January 2019, manufacturers, importers and authorised representatives of certain appliances need to register their goods and provide the additional consumer information before selling them on the European market. Some legacy goods will also need to have their energy labelling amended and additional information added to the EPREL database if placed on the market from the 1st August 2017 and the 31st December 2018. Now whilst the EPREL database is an EU managed initiative there are obvious implications for goods manufactured outside of the EU where the EU is the intended recipient region of sale. It is fortunate then that BIXOLON has a global sales and support team, plus a network of UNITE partners that can meet all your printing needs. For your label creation and generation needs, then BIXOLON offer a free of charge Label Artist™ application.BIXOLON’s broad range of energy saving Mobile, Desktop and Industrial printers support all industry types of barcode symbologies, including the QR code, plus UHF RFID print-encoding.The range of easy to use portable and fixed printers ensure quality output label after label on a choice of print resolutions - 203, 300 and 600 dpi.
