Regulation 617/2013(1), adopted by the European Commission on 26 June 2013 concerns ecodesign requirements for the placing on the market of a variety of computing products. The Regulation entered into force on 17 July 2013 and is applicable in three stages over the next years: from its entry into force, from 1 July 2014 and from 1 January 2016.

Ecodesign Regulation and Requirements

Details pertaining to the ecodesign requirements and implementation timetable are outlined in Annex II of the Regulation, while Annex III shows how compliance should be determined in accordance to provided measurements and verification procedures for market surveillance.

The ecodesign requirements affect the annual total energy consumption (E-TEC), sleep mode, lowest power state, off mode, internal power supply efficiency, power management enabling and information to be provided by manufacturers. Specific requirements and different application dates relate to each type of product. The requirements for power management enabling for some products and the maximum allowable power demand in the lowest power state are already in effect, while compliance with most of the remaining requirements must be achieved by July 1, 2014.

Following the publication of this Regulation, two previous ecodesign regulations’ scopes have been amended - Regulation n°1275/2008 and Regulation n° 278/2009.
