Mini Summary

The Energy Information Regulations 2011 set energy labelling and standard product information requirements for energy-related products and is linked to The Ecodesign for Energy Related Products Regulations 2010. They also define the Market Surveillance Authority which is responsible for enforcing these Regulations.



These Regulations update Schedule 1 which lists the EU energy labelling measures that currently have effect, and that can therefore be enforced by the UK market surveillance authority under the 2011 Regulations. Added to the table in Schedule 1 are the new energy labelling measures coming into force from 1st November 2020, which have been made under Regulation (EU) 2017/1369 setting a framework for energy labelling (‘EU Energy Labelling Regulation‘).

These new energy labelling requirements are specifically for household washer-dryers, household washing machines, household dishwashers and household refrigerating appliances.
