1、 Introduction to EU ERP certification
ERP (energy related products), i.e. energy related products, is closely related to many important environmental impact factors in all links of its life cycle of production, distribution and use, such as the consumption of other raw materials and natural resources (such as water), the generation of waste, environmental pollution caused by the discharge of harmful substances into the environment, and related climate change caused by energy consumption.
The purpose of the EU's ERP directive is to formulate a coherent and comprehensive legal framework to specify the environmental design requirements of energy consuming products. The ERP directive stipulates that each member state shall designate a supervisory authority to exercise market supervision power over energy consuming products entering the market. The power exercised by the supervisory authority is usually reflected in three aspects: first, it can inspect the energy related products within the implementation measures and instruct the manufacturer to recall the products that do not meet the requirements; Second, require relevant parties to provide necessary information; Third, it has the power to sample from the market and conduct compliance inspection.
The obligation of Member States to inform the European Commission and other member states of the information obtained in a timely manner. This means that when an energy consuming product is prohibited from entering the markets of one or more EU Member States, the product will also be unable to enter the markets of other EU Member States.
