UK Ecodesign updated following public consulation
Following a recent public consultation, which PLASA and its members contributed to, the UK Government has decided to implement updated Ecodesign requirements and a re-scaled energy label for lighting products in Great Britain from September 2021.
The new GB Regulations will reflect the updated Ecodesign and energy labelling requirements which will begin to apply in Northern Ireland and the EU from 1 September this year. It will also adopt the amendments made to these requirements by the EU’s omnibus amendment procedure. Secondary legislation to implement these requirements will be laid this summer.
A full Government response setting out the feedback received to the consultation will be published in due course, including a summary of responses to their questions about how to achieve better carbon, energy and resource savings from lighting products beyond 2021.
