    Welcome to the initiatives section of APPLiA.

Purpose of the templates

The Energy Labelling framework Regulation (EU) 2017/1369 stipulates that suppliers have to register products that bear an EU Energy Label in an EU Product Registry.

The European Commission services have named this product registry "EPREL” for European Product Registry for Energy Labelling. For further details see the dedicated webpage.

Whereas the content details of the public part of EPREL are clearly defined in the so-called EPREL exchange model, the technical documentation (for the compliance part) is only generically described in the Energy Labelling framework Regulation (EU) 2017/1369. Yet, it is evident that the details of the technical documentation depend very much on the product group, and thus need the consideration of the product specific delegated acts.

Whereas the content details of the public part of EPREL are clearly defined in the so-called EPREL exchange model, the technical documentation (i.e., compliance part) is only generically described in Regulation (EU) 2017/1369. Yet, it is evident that the details of the technical documentation vary according to the product group, and thus need the consideration of the product specific delegated acts. 

The above mentioned EPREL exchange model only accepts PDF files that have to cover Article 12.5 (a) to (f) but does not make any statement on the content of these files.

APPLiA has therefore decided to analyse the product specific Energy Labelling delegated acts and to support APPLiA’s direct members as well as its national associations and their own members by proposing a template that meets in the eyes of the respective working groups the legal requirements for technical documentation according to Article 12.5 and that can be used for uploading the compliance data into EPREL.
