Guidelines for the European Product Registry on Energy Labelling (EPREL)

LightingEurope is making available our members’ collective experience in how to apply the EPREL obligations to light sources. A first version of these guidelines was published in March 2019 and was reserved for our members only.
LightingEurope has received questions and requests for information about EPREL which we address in this version 2 of our guidelines and are making available to all companies.
All products in scope of the new EU ecodesign and energy labelling rules for light sources must be registered in the EPREL database before they can be placed on the market.

Contents

  • What is EPREL?
  • What lighting products are in scope?
  • Who needs to upload information?
  • What information and values need to be uploaded, including explanations for each value and a non-exhaustive list of relevant harmonised standards.
  • By when should information be registered?
  • When is information considered final, when is it published, can it be corrected after a product is placed on the market, what changes require the registration of a new model?
  • We also provide an excel to help companies upload information directly in the compliance part of EPREL.
