BAKGRUNN (fra kommisjonsutkastet, engelsk utgave)

(1) Regulation (EU) 2017/1369 empowers the Commission to adopt delegated acts as regards the labelling or re-scaling of the labelling of product groups representing significant potential for energy savings and, where relevant, other resources.

(2) The Commission has carried out a preparatory study to analyse the technical, environmental and economic aspects of mobile phones, smartphones and slate tablets. The study was conducted in close cooperation with stakeholders and interested parties in the Union and third countries, and the results have been made publicly available.

(3) The preparatory study concluded that the scope for reducing the energy consumption of smartphones and slate tablets is substantial. It also concluded that the battery lifetime and consequently the product lifetime of smartphones and slate tablets can significantly be improved by means of an energy labelling scheme. Smartphones and slate tablets should therefore be covered by energy labelling requirements. An energy label is however currently not seen as appropriate for cordless phones and feature phones, given the moderate spread in the energy efficiency of products available on the market.

(4) In total, smartphones and slate tablets consumed 36,1 TWh of primary energy in 2020, including all life cycle phases. The preparatory study showed that, without regulatory action, these values are likely to increase to 36,5 TWh of primary energy in 2030. The combined effect of this Regulation and [OP: please insert reference to accompanying Commission Regulation including ecodesign requirements for smartphones and tablets] is expected to limit the energy consumption of smartphones and slate tablets in 2030 to 23.3 TWh, meaning 35 % of primary energy consumption is saved compared to what would happen if no measures were taken.

(5) Smartphones and slate tablets that are displayed at trade fairs should bear the energy label if the first unit of the model has already been placed on the market or is placed on the market at the trade fair.

(6) The relevant product parameters should be measured or calculated using reliable, accurate and reproducible methods. Those methods should take into account recognised state-of-the-art measurement methods including, where available, harmonised standards adopted by the European standardisation bodies, as listed in Annex I to Regulation (EU) No 1025/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council.

(7) To facilitate compliance checks, the content of the technical documentation referred to in Annex VI should be sufficient to allow market surveillance authorities to check the values published on the label and in the product information sheet. In accordance with Article 12 of Regulation 2017/1369, values for the measured and calculated parameters of the model should be entered into the product database.

(8) Recognising the growth of sales of energy-related products through providers of online platforms, as defined in the [add reference to the Digital Services Act], rather than directly from suppliers’ websites, it should be clarified that such providers of online platforms should enable traders to provide information concerning the labelling of the product concerned, in compliance with Article 31(2) of the [add reference to the Digital Services Act]. The ‘information concerning the labelling and marking’ referred to in Article 31(2), point (c) of [add reference to the Digital Services Act] should, in the context of this Regulation, be understood as encompassing both the energy label and the product information sheet. In line with Article 6 of the [add reference to the Digital Services Act], providers of online platforms are not liable for products sold through their interfaces on the condition that they do not have actual knowledge of the illegality of such products and upon receiving knowledge on the illegality of the products they act expeditiously to remove them from their interfaces. A supplier selling directly to end-users via its own website is covered by dealers’ distance selling obligations referred to in Article 5 of Regulation (EU) 2017/1369.

(9) In order to ensure coherence with existing industry norms, references in this Regulation related to fasteners and connectors, tools, working environment and skill level, in the context of calculating the repairability score, are consistent with the terminology of used in standard EN 45554, which provides general methods for the assessment of the ability to repair, reuse and upgrade energy-related products.

(10) The requirements set out in this Regulation should apply from 18 months after its entry into force. The obligation laid down in Article 3(1), point (a), should already apply from 14 months after the entry into force of this Regulation, to provide dealers with printed labels in order to allow them to comply when relevant requirements enter into application.

(11) The measures provided for in this Regulation were discussed by the Consultation Forum established pursuant to Article 14(1) of Regulation (EU) 2017/1369.
