The Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS) is working to help stakeholders and manufacturers understand their requirements to comply with the Ecodesign regulations for refrigerated storage cabinets, blast cabinets, condensing units and process chillers.
Part of the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, the OPSS is the market surveillance authority for the enforcement of Ecodesign regulations for these products. The combined effect of this regulation and the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2015/1094 is expected to result in annual electricity savings of 6.3 TWh by 2020 and 15.6 TWh by 2030 in the EU.
Failure to comply with the regulations can result in prosecutions or civil sanctions.
