Information about appliance tests in 2011 – 2013

The Come On Labels project is not only about formulating ideal best practice activities within energy labelling. It is also about monitoring real activities in individual countries, and about supporting relevant stakeholders in undertaking them more frequently or in more detail. One way of undertaking such activity is to collect information about product tests, related to their label compliance and energy consumption, which are carried out in individual countries, and exchange this information among the stakeholders at both national and international level.

The documents listed below contain information about the known product tests and related activities organised within the project. Examples include informing the national authorities and, if relevant, corrective action taken, the reaction of national manufacturer offices to both negative and positive test results, and media and public organisations informed about the on-going work so that  public confidence is increased with regard to energy labelling.)
