News: Energy using Products (EuP) Directive Replaced
ErP is the new Energy-related Products directive 2009/125/EC, which replaces the EuP Energy using Products directive 2005/32/EC or sometimes called the Eco-Design directive.
Member States shall bring into force the laws, regulations and administrative provisions necessary to comply with Articles 1 to 9, 11, 14, 15 and 20 and Annexes I to V, VII and VIII by 20 November 2010.
Originally the Eco-Design directive for energy using products only covered boilers and heaters. The new ErP directive covers products under the old EuP directive and will expand into products that are energy-related and do not directly use energy such as double glazing windows.
