ERJ staff report (TP)
Berlin – Europe's association for rubber and plastics machinery makers Euromap is planning the introduction of an energy label for machinery.
The label supplements the published Euromap recommendations on energy efficiency. At present, the machine manufacturers use their own designs to present the determined energy efficiency classes. The development of a common and neutral label will enable manufacturers to present the efficiency classes of their machines transparent and comparable for customers.
In contrast to the energy label of the EU (eg for refrigerators), the Euromap label is voluntary.
The detailed specification of the label is available as a free download for public advance information. It should come into force by 1 October.
