By Paola Pesconi, Ukraine Regulatory Program Expert
A technical regulation on energy efficiency labeling for cooking appliances was recently published and will become mandatory for Ukraine market access.
Beginning December 12, 2018, a Ukrainian energy label must be placed on household electric and gas ovens and household hoods, informing customers about the Energy Efficiency class of the product. The regulation is based on European directive no. 2010/30/EC and, except for the local language and flag, label layout is similar to the European Energy Label.
The adoption of the technical regulation is part of a larger program for the implementation of energy efficiency requirements in the Ukraine.
Similar regulations are currently in force for:
- Household tumble dryers
- Air conditioners
- Vacuum cleaners
- Household electrical refrigerators
- Household washing machines
- Household dishwashers
- Electrical lamps and luminaires
In addition, technical regulations on eco-design, based on European regulations, have been drafted by the State Agency for Energy Efficiency and Energy Conservation of Ukraine.
All the new and drafted regulations are harmonized with the European Union requirements.
