In addition, this Technical Report might also be applicable to other types of energy related products and parts of it might be applicable for the verification of product claims in schemes outside the European Union.
CLC/TC 59X has developed this technical report from its early experience in energy label and ecodesign verification projects as well as with experience from pilot projects such as the Appliance Testing for Energy Label and Evaluation (ATLETE), co-funded by the Intelligence Energy Europe Programme of the European Union. In particular, two projects on refrigerators and washing machines were developed under this scheme. The projects were established to check compliance with Energy Labelling and Ecodesign Regulations for these appliance types across the EU, improve the capacity of testing laboratories, and support cooperation among national Market Surveillance Authorities (MSAs) by demonstrating how verification projects could be undertaken.
The informative document CLC/TR 50674:2018 was prepared by Working Group 16 ‘Uncertainty’ of CLC/TC 59X ‘Performance of household and similar electrical appliances’. The reader should note that this Technical Report also includes some statements based directly on European Ecodesign and Energy Labelling Regulations that are applicable types of products at the time of writing.
The secretariat of CLC/TC 59X is held by DKE- German Commission for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies of DIN and VDE.
