The European Product Database for Energy Labelling (EPREL) has been initiated by the EU Regulation body in 2017. The main purpose is to provide EU consumers with important energy efficiency information. Additionally, this allows authorities to effectively perform market surveillance and enforce regulations. For suppliers, EPREL mainly serves as a guideline to accurately list technical documentation and in return gives access to the EU market.
Anyone who needs to register a product at the EPREL first creates an account at the European Commission’s website and then can upload the information into the database. Each new modification to the product needs to be registered separately to meet the compliance criteria.
