Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland
If you manufacture certain energy-related products you must take account of environmental aspects in the design and development of the products.
If you import or supply certain energy-related products you must ensure that the product meets the specific requirements for the type of product.
Ecodesign regulations have been agreed for:
Each category is regulated by a separate European Union (EU) implementing regulation. This sets requirements that the products must meet to be placed on the EU market.
The deadlines for meeting the design requirements vary depending on the product. You can find the timescales in the relevant ecodesign regulation. See the page in this guideline on ecodesign of energy-related products legislation.
Read the detailed guidance from the National Measurement Office (NMO) on the GOV.UK website.
