Household Appliances

The Working Group on Energy Matters is responsible for legislation related to household appliances, which is incorporated in Annex II, Chapter IV of the EEA Agreement.

For household appliances such as refrigerators, washing machines and ovens to be freely traded across the EEA, harmonisation of requirements is required, for example on how energy efficient appliances must be. Much of the legislation is related to the labelling of products, with a view to providing consumers with objective and comparable product information.
