ECO design regulation coming into force in March 2021

Sustainability and energy efficiency are the basis for the development of AHT products, therefor it is highly important for us at AHT to act in a future-oriented manner. The ECO Design regulation, which will come into force on March 1, 2021 and form a framework for all refrigerators with a direct sales function, drives the environmentally friendly development of energy-related products and thus reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Direct emissions from refrigerants and the provision of spare parts must also be taken into account. In order to analyze the so-called energy efficiency rating, limit values ​​are determined from given and standardized calculations and formulas in which all devices brought onto the market in the EU must be located. The rating (from A-G) is already known in a similar form from household appliances. For the buyer of the device, it should be clear at first glance which energy efficiency class the device is in.

From March 1st, 2021, all devices will be listed in the EPREL database and can be accessed under the following link:
