New ErP Regulation LED strip

What is The New ErP Regulations?

ErP is the abbreviation of Energy-related Products. It also refers to Energy-related Products Directive (ErP) 2009/125/EC that replaced the old Energy-using Products Directive (EuP) in November 2009. The original EuP was taken into use in 2005 to fulfill the Kioto agreement requirements for reducing carbon dioxide emissions.

The ErP broadened the range of products that were covered in EuP. Earlier only directly energy-consuming (or using) products were covered. Now ErP directive also covers the products related to energy. This could be for example water-saving taps, etc.
The idea is to cover the whole product supply chain: design stage, production, transport, packaging, storage, etc.

The former ErP directives EC 244/2009, EC 245/2009, EU 1194/2012 and Energy Label directive EU 874/2012 had been taken effect for more than10 years. Recently, the European Commission has reviewed these regulations and analyzed the technical, environmental and economic aspects of lighting products as well as real-life user behavior and issued new ErP directives EU 2019/2020 and energy label directive EU 2019/2015.

What Does The New ErP Regulation Contain?

  • EU SLR – Single Lighting Regulation | Commission Regulation (EU) No 2019/2020 laying down ecodesign requirements for light sources and separate control gear. You can read the SLR in full here.
  • EU ELR – Energy Labelling Regulation | Commission Regulation (EU) No 2019/2015 laying down energy labelling requirements of light sources. You can read the ELR in full here.

The SLR will replace and repeal three regulations: (EC) No 244/2009, (EC) No 245/2009, and (EU) No 1194/2012. This will give a single reference point for compliance, define the light sources covered under the regulation, and separate control gear in new terms. Light sources can be anything that emits white lights, including LED lamps, LED modules, and luminaires. Luminaires can also be classified as containing products for light sources.

The new, more stringent minimum efficacy thresholds on light sources and separate control gear should encourage the lighting industry to innovate and further improve energy efficiency beyond existing technology.

It also encourages design for a circular economy with more reuse and less refuse. This means products should be designed to be more reliable, upgradeable where possible, enable the ‘right to repair’, contain more recyclable material, and be easier to dismantle. This will ultimately help to reduce waste ending up in a landfill.

Energy Labels are the tool used to communicate energy efficiency. They are used on all electrical energy-using products, including washing machines, televisions, and light sources.
Regulations are a tool used to implement the requirements for improving efficiency.

The ELR will replace and repeal two regulations: (EC) No 874/2012 and (EC) No 2017/1369.
It defines the new energy labelling requirements for packaging, sales literature, websites, and distance selling. As part of this, all products requiring energy labels must be registered into the EPREL database. A QR code linking to the technical product information is also mandatory.

Subject Matter And Scope of New ErP Regulation

1. This Regulation establishes ecodesign requirements for the placing on the market of
(a) light sources;
(b) separate control gears.
The requirements also apply to light sources and separate control gears placed on the market in a containing product.

2. This Regulation shall not apply to light sources and separate control gears specified in points 1 and 2 of Annex III.

3. Light sources and separate control gears specified in point 3 of Annex III shall comply only with the requirements of point 3(e) of Annex II.

Ecodesign Requirements

For the purposes of compliance and verification of compliance with the requirements of this Regulation, measurements and calculations shall be made using harmonised standards the reference numbers of which have been published for this purpose in the Official Journal of the European Union, or other reliable, accurate and reproducible methods, which take into account the generally recognised state-of-the-art.

(a)

From 1 September 2021, the declared power consumption of a light source P on shall not exceed the maximum allowed power Ponmax (in W), defined as a function of the declared useful luminous flux Φuse (in lm) and the declared colour rendering index CRI (-) as follows:

Ponmax = C × (L + Φuse/(F × η)) × R;

where:

The values for threshold efficacy (η in lm/W) and end loss factor (L in W) are specified in Table 1, depending on the light source type. They are constants used for computations and do not reflect true parameters of light sources. The threshold efficacy is not the minimum required efficacy; the latter can be computed by dividing the useful luminous flux by the computed maximum allowed power.

Basic values for correction factor (C) depending on light source type, and additions to C for special light source features are specified in Table 2.

Efficacy factor (F) is:

1,00 for non-directional light sources (NDLS, using total flux)

0,85 for directional light sources (DLS, using flux in a cone)

CRI factor (R) is:

0,65 for CRI ≤ 25;

(CRI+80)/160 for CRI > 25, rounded to two decimals.

For light sources that can be tuned to emit light at full-load with different characteristics, the values of parameters that vary with these characteristics shall be reported at the reference control settings.

If the light source is no longer placed on the EU market, the supplier shall put in the product database the date (month, year) when the placing on the EU market stopped.

2.   Information to be displayed in the documentation for a containing product

If a light source is placed on the market as a part in a containing product, the technical documentation for the containing product shall clearly identify the contained light source(s), including the energy efficiency class.

If a light source is placed on the market as a part in a containing product, the following text shall be displayed, clearly legible, in the user manual or booklet of instructions:

‘This product contains a light source of energy efficiency class <X>’,

where <X> shall be replaced by the energy efficiency class of the contained light source.

If the product contains more than one light source, the sentence can be in the plural, or repeated per light source, as suitable.

3.   Information to be displayed on the supplier’s free access website:

(a)

The reference control settings, and instructions on how they can be implemented, where applicable;

(b)

Instructions on how to remove lighting control parts and/or non-lighting parts, if any, or how to switch them off or minimize their power consumption;

(c)

If the light source is dimmable: a list of dimmers it is compatible with, and the light source — dimmer compatibility standard(s) it is compliant with, if any;

(d)

If the light source contains mercury: instructions on how to clean up the debris in case of accidental breakage;

(e)

Recommendations on how to dispose of the light source at the end of its life in line with Directive 2012/19/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council (1).

4.   Information for products specified in point 3 of Annex IV

For the light sources specified in point 3 of Annex IV, their intended use shall be stated on all forms of packaging, product information and advertisement, together with a clear indication that the light source is not intended for use in other applications.

The technical documentation file drawn up for the purposes of conformity assessment, in accordance with paragraph 3 of Article 3 of Regulation (EU) 2017/1369 shall list the technical parameters that make the product design specific to qualify for the exemption.

Energy Efficiency Classes And Calculation Method

The energy efficiency class of light sources shall be determined as set out in Table 1, on the basis of the total mains efficacy ηTM, which is calculated by dividing the declared useful luminous flux Φuse (expressed in lm) by the declared on-mode power consumption Pon (expressed in W) and multiplying by the applicable factor FTM of Table 2, as follows:

ηTM = (Φuse/Pon) × FTM (lm/W).
