The certification mark applies to energy-related products. To function as intended, energy-related products are dependent on energy input in the form of electricity, fossil fuels or energy from renewable sources. Examples include household appliances and office equipment, heating and lighting systems. Also included in the scope are products that are dependent on energy input and intended to be incorporated into a product by end-users. Excluded are means for transporting people and goods.
The certification mark is based on the Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC, which is designed to establish a framework for defining requirements related to the eco-design of energy-related products.
In addition, the certification mark is also based on Directive 2010/30/EU, which specifies the requirements for indication, by means of labelling and standard product information, of the consumption of energy and other resources by energy-related products. Energy labelling provides information on energy efficiency during use, and thus aids in making purchase decisions.
Depending on the products to be tested, the following further Directives may apply: EC 1275/2008, EC 107/2009, EC 244/2009, EC 245/2009, EC 278/2009, EC 642/2009, EC 643/2009, EC 1015/2010, EC 1016/2010, EU 206/2012, EU 932/2012, EU 1194/2012, EU 617/2013, EU 666/2013, EU 801/2013, EU 66/2014, EU 2015/1185, EU 2015/1188, EU 2015/1095, EC 640/2009, EC 641/2009, EC 327/2011, EU 206/2012, EU 547/2012, EU 813/2013, EU 814/2013, EU 548/2014, EU1253/2014, EU 2015/1189.
The voluntary certification mark with the statement “Safety tested” is issued for products, indicating that the product was tested and certified by the independent third-party organisation of TÜV SÜD Product Service for conformity with the essential technical safety requirements.
