The ComplianTV project aims at providing a fully-fledged and detailed methodological guidance to allow European Union (EU) Member State (MS) Market Surveillance Authorities (MSAs) to face the new legislative and market challenges for TVs in an effective and cost-efficient way (with a support of aligned concerted testing and the development of a database). The project has the objective of:
- Analysing the implication of the new Energy Labelling Directive (labelling declarations, Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1062/2010) and Ecodesign Directive (Commission Regulation (EC) No 642/2009 defining the minimum ecodesign requirements) on the market surveillance activities by carrying out ad-hoc surveys.
- Assessing the compliance of TVs in the framework of the new Energy Labelling and Ecodesign regulations, through verification procedures.
- Improving the know-how and testing capability of laboratories with regard to the new and complex measurement method for measuring energy efficiency of TVs. This capacity building action will be carried out through harmonisation and coordination between laboratory partners of this project and other laboratories.
- Evaluating the outcomes of the product tests carried out and proposing corrective approaches to manufacturers and retailers.
