With the new energy label for fridges and freezers with a direct sales function, introduced 1 March 2021.
According to the new EU regulation, the energy efficiency of all fridges and freezers with a direct sales function must be indicated after 1 March. This is done by means of a new label that will assist with the purchasing decision. The appliances are rated on a scale of A to G, depending on efficiency. The mandatory data to be included on the label vary for the following product groups: upright bottle coolers, ice cream chest freezers and cooling appliances for supermarkets. This means there are different versions of the new label.
Incidentally, storage cabinets have been subject to mandatory labelling since 1 July 2019. And one more thing: laboratory appliances and medication fridges are excluded from the mandatory labelling rule.
