Effective date of TR 048/2019 on Energy Efficiency postponed until 01/09/2022.

Effective date of TR 048/2019 on Energy Efficiency postponed until 01/09/2022.
On January 29, the EEC Council decided to postpone the effective date of the TR of EAEU "On The Requirements for Energy Efficiency of Energy Consumption Devices" (EAEU 048/2019) from 01-Sep-21 to 01-Sep-22.

Furthermore, subsequent decision was made to postpone the effective date for the EEC Council Decree, which sets the forms for labels of energy-consuming devices of different types and the rules of their registration to 01-Mar-2022, which is a pre-requisite for the above TR on EE to come into effect.

For those who haven't been following development of this TR, then please continue to read for a brief overview on what it entails, as well as what it will mean for the manufacturers once introduced.

The EAEU TR 048/2019 was developed to bring a harmonized approach from the compliance perspective across all EAEU Member States (Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia) to ensure energy efficiency and resource conservation. 

It defines requirements for conformity assessment, including rules on product classification, general requirements for labelling and accompanying documents, as well as rules on energy efficiency class determination. 

Similarly as for current EAC EMC, Safety & RoHS schemes, to comply with the EAEU TR 048/2019, manufacturers would have to follow compliance route via a Declaration or Certification scheme. A single EAC Approval can cover all applicable TR, however, in certain cases, it would be more beneficial to obtain a separate Declaration to cover just RoHS and EE for example, bespoke assessment of which will be performed by ELEOS Team on start of every project and aligned with each customer. 
 
Most of the products however will fall under the declaration scheme, with the exception of computers and servers that are connected to a mains power source, as well as few other devices. The full list of products that are subject to certification or declaration can be found in Appendix No. 1 of the draft EAEU TR 048/2019 (page 25).

Finally, please note that a grace period of 24 months was recently introduced for the EAEU TR 048/2019 from the effective date. This means that once the grace period is over, all national level certificates on Energy Efficiency will be replaced by EAC.
