Overview Labelling

The Labelling Directive aims at setting labelling requirements for energy consumption and the use of other resources of particular product groups. Whereas the directive only sets the frame, product group specific delegated acts (e.g. regulations) are elaborated in a subsequent process.

After a product group has been selected for labelling, the next steps to obligatory regulations are as follows:

  1. Use of the information provided in the according Ecodesign preparatory study
  2. Working Document drafted by the European Commission, discussion in the Consultation Forum; depending on the development of the discussions, draft documents can be revised several times (only the most recent version is linked below)
  3. Adoption of a regulation by the EU Commission
  4. The regulation is sent to the EU Parliament and the Council for scrutiny
  5. Mandatory regulation published in the Official Journal of the European Union
