European Commission


The European Commission has launched a review study of the regulation on ecodesign and labelling requirements for water heaters and tanks. The study covers the review of the Commission Regulation (EU) No 814/2013 and Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 812/2013.

The study is carried out by VHK, with assistance from BRG Building Solutions for market data, for the European Commission, DG Energy. Contract manager is Viegand Maagøe A/S. The study started in June 2017 and will run for 22 months.

This website will provide information on the study mainly for EU Member States and stakeholders. Please register to receive updates on stakeholder meetings and publication of documents.

A similar study, focusing on hydronic space heaters, runs in parallel.
