Status of certain environmental regulations in Eastern Europe

Eurasian regulation for energy efficiency postponed.

The Eurasian Economic Union’s Technical Regulation EAEU TR 048/2019 concerning “Requirements for the energy efficiency of energy-consuming devices» has been decided postponed for at least one year. The presently indicated date of implementation 1st of September 2022.

Actually, postponement for as much as 3 years is being considered in order for all parties concerned to be prepared for meeting the various requirements that are involved.

Annex 17 of the regulation which covers Computers & Servers, may be seen here (in Russian). This is apparently based on European Union’s ErP No.617/2013 Tier 2 Computer RegulationBut due to postponement it may possibly change before being implemented.

  • Household dishwashers
  • Household refrigerating appliances
