NEW EU LEGISLATION
This year, new eco-design requirements will apply to almost all lighting products marketed in the EU. Importers and manufacturers are responsible for compliance. A central obligation is uploading specific product data to a central EU database: The EPREL database. A QR tag on product labels will enable customers to access this data easily.
Get all data in one go (excl. product lifetime expectancies) with a Viso light measurement system.
Manufacturers and importer are obliged to upload different kinds of product information:
- Product model description
- General information incl. energy consumption
- Energy Label
- Technical documentation, and
- Equivalent models
There are several ways to register product models in EPREL: Manual upload, ZIP file upload, or system-to-system upload. EPREL is currently only available in English. It will be available in all approved EU languages later on. All the information needed for registering a product in EPREL is the same information required to be in your possession when placing a products on the EU market. Such information included test reports, declaration of conformity and so on.
For existing Viso clients, getting your hands on data is easy – just follow instructions here.
