Eco-design regulations set minimum energy efficiency standards. If you manufacture or import products which use or generate energy (boilers, computers, televisions, etc.) or which can contribute to saving energy (windows, insulation, etc.), you must comply with the relevant European Union (EU) directive (2009/125/EC) and its implementing measures. Industry sectors may also sign voluntary agreements to reduce the energy consumption of their products. The Commission formally recognises such agreements and monitors their implementation.
