Abstract

The task of the Working Group on Energy Labelling was to carry out preparations with a view to introduce the energy labelling and energy efficiency standards in Finland. These measures are needed for the implementation of the Finnish Council of State Programme on Energy Conservation. They are also a part of the work paving way for the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The Working Group`s proposals arise from the EC Council Directive 92/75/EEC on the indication by labelling and standard product information of the consumption of energy and other resources by household appliances. Energy labelling shall be affixed on household appliances to be offered for sale. It provides a description of the energy consumption by the appliance during its operation, compared with the consumption by other similar appliances. The labelling is complemented through product fiches drawn up as prescribed. The aim is that all major household appliances covered by the EC Directive which are offered for sale would be provided with energy labelling. The product information describing energy consumption is expected to influence consumers` purchase choices in favour of energy efficient appliances. Energy labelling will also encourage manufacturers to produce increasingly energy efficient household appliances. The Working Group proposes  More>>

Energy labelling will also encourage manufacturers to produce increasingly energy efficient household appliances. The Working Group proposes issuance under the Consumer Protection Act of a general decree relating to energy consumption labelling, a draft of which the Working Group made. In addition, the implementing directives concerning different household appliance categories should, according to the Working Group, be made the subject of a number of Decisions to be issued by the Ministry of Trade and Industry}
