Joint CECED and Eurovent Position Paper on the review study of air-conditioners’ regulations (GEN - 811.00)

CECED and Eurovent provide comments on Task 1 & 2 of the ecodesign and energy labelling review study on air-conditioners and comfort fans

GEN - 811.00. In this paper, CECED and Eurovent have jointly provided input for the European Commission review study of ecodesign and energy labelling for air conditioners and comfort fans (Commission Regulation (EU) No 206/2012 and the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 626/2011). The paper specifically addresses Task 1 and Task 2 of the Study’s draft interim report.

Eurovent and CECED hold that the EU Ecodesign regulations and measures are a powerful tool to achieve the European Union energy saving targets and to ensure the level-playing-field. CECED and Eurovent do not regard these measures as a burden, but as a motivation to further innovate while contributing to progressive thinking throughout all sectors of our industry.
