Transitional symbols for the implementation of Commission Regulation n° 1015/2010 with regard to ecodesign requirements for washing machines
Transitional symbols for the implementation of Commission Regulation n° 1015/2012 with regard to ecodesign requirements for washing machinesOn 13 July 2012 the European Commission published Communication n° 2012/C 206/05 in the framework of the implementation of Commission Regulation (EU) No 1015/2010 implementing Directive 2009/125/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to ecodesign requirements for washing machines.
In order to facilitate the clear identification of the ‘standard cotton programmes’ at 40°C and 60°C, which are used for the calculation of the energy consumption and other parameters for household washing machines, transitional symbols shall be provided on the programme selection device of household washing machines or/and on their display, if any.
The following transitional symbols providing presumption of conformity should apply on household washing machines and the relevant cycles shall be indicated as ‘standard 60 °C cotton programme’ and ‘standard 40 °C cotton programme’.
These symbols are transitional as they will be ultimately replaced by symbols provided in harmonized standard(s) for the purposes of compliance and verification of compliance with the requirements of the Regulation n° 1015/2010.
