For the EU project EEPLIANT2 we are seeking accredited, independent laboratories located within the EEA with experience of testing domestic and professional refrigerated appliances using harmonized EU standards. An open tender is now available and is covering appliance testing in 2018/2019.
An important part of the EEPLIANT2 project is the testing of appliances for compliance with the relevant energy labelling and ecodesign regulations, which requires testing of appliances to the appropriate European standard in accredited test labs. This tender covers energy efficiency testing programmes under two product groups, or 'Lots'. Tenderers may bid for one Lot, or for both Lots:
- Lot 1: Household refrigerating appliances as subject to Commission Regulation (EC) No 643/2009 (ecodesign) and Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1060/2010 (energy labelling),
- Lot 2: Professional refrigerated storage cabinets as subject to Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/1094 (energy labelling) and Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/1095 (ecodesign).
