New energy label and eco design regulations

The new EU energy label and eco design regulations become effective in 2021. As a result of Brexit, new regulations also come in place for the UK.​ These follow the EU very closely - except for a dedicated UK label. This means that both Nordlux and our retailers must comply with the new regulations from September 1st, 2021.

New energy label and eco design regulations

A new rating system for the European energy rating label replaces the old one, lifting the demands for energy efficiency of lighting products for the benefit of all of us. The new label has a scale ranging from A to G. If the label is not printed on the part of the packaging meant to face the prospective customer, an arrow containing the letter of the energy efficiency class shall be displayed instead.

The new regulations concern the following four types of products.

Light sources

Containing products

Other products not part of the new regulations

What does this mean for our dealers?

It means that our dealers must provide the new labels on their websites and in stores from September 15th, 2021. The labels will be available digitally from August 1st, 2021 and can be found in our content store at the link below. Products without new energy labels can no longer be sold after March 1st, 2023 - after that date, the label needs to be added.

When selling our products online, our dealers must show the energy label and the product information sheet - optionally as an embedded picture. For more detailed instructions, please see Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/2015 annex VIII in the link below.


So in short what you, as a dealer, need to do is:

  • Download the new energy labels for your Nordlux and dftp collection.
  • Make them available for the consumer to see and click on the specific product page (please read specific requirements in Regulation)
