Directive 2009/125/EC (also known as ECODESIGN) introduced by the European Union in 2019, has imposed on manufacturers and importers of lighting products a number of requirements that must be met by products placed on the EU market. The main goal of the project is to reduce the presence of poor quality products available in the EU.
In order to introduce a new product for sale, it must be registered in the EPREL database. A corresponding energy efficiency label is generated, which must be included on the packaging and clearly displayed to the customer.
The EPREL database has been operating for several years, but there are still problems with product registration. In order to register a product, the necessary tests must be carried out and the results imported in a strictly defined format in an .xml file. In its current form, operating the EPREL database and entering data into it is time-consuming and not very intuitive.
To meet the needs of manufacturers and importers of lighting, we have created an add-on to the GL SPECTROSOFT software that will speed up the process of introducing products to sale. GL EPREL ADD-ON will automatically save the measurement results in the correct format and allow export to a file ready for import into the EPREL database. Save your time and equip your laboratory with the EPREL add-on.
