All Change as New Legislation Hits Vacuum Cleaners

On the 1s September new EU eco-design and labelling regulations comes into force. The EU energy label is being introduced by the European Union and means manufacturers will not be able to manufacture or import vacuum cleaners with a motor that exceeds 1,600 watts.

The new EU energy label also means that by 2017, manufacturers will not be able to make or import vacuum cleaners with a motor that exceedhenrys 900 watts. For the first time labels will give vacuum cleaners A to G ratings for energy use, cleaning performance on carpets and hard floors, and dust emissions. The label also requires a minimum level of performance for the vacuum to be sold in the EU.

Just to clarify for all our customers, the only clause in the legislation regarding the removal of these models from the market is that manufacturers can no longer bring these vacuums into the UK. If there are models already sat in manufacturers’ warehouses then they can continue to sell them selling them.
