Government releases new consultation on ecodesign and energy labelling requirements

The British government has released a new consultation on ecodesign and energy labelling. The consultation is seeking views on proposed updates to the existing ecodesign and energy labelling requirements. The requirements currently apply to light sources and separate control gears or lighting products in the UK.

The consultation closes at 11:45pm on the 27th January.

This consultation is specifically asking for views on:

  • the ecodesign and energy labelling proposals themselves
  • our assessment of the costs and benefits of these regulations as well as our assessment of the impact of not regulating, as set out in the Impact Assessment published with this consultation
  • the intended timetables for reviewing the draft regulations after they come into force
