Which labels will be new in 2021?

The UK adopted the regulation before the country’s departure from the EU, and therefore the energy label is being introduced from March 1st 2021 and September 1st for lighting products, same as in the participating EU member states.

In 2021, new labels will be implemented in physical stores and online shops for the following five product groups:

  • Household refrigerators and freezers
  • Washing machines and wash-dryers
  • Dishwashers
  • TVs and electronic displays
  • Light sources

For other labelled product groups like air conditioners, tumble dryers, space and water heaters etc. the new labels will be introduced as soon as new or revised UK regulations come into force.

You will find below the standard labels for each of the appliances and products transitioning to the new label in 2021. 

For more information about the individual icons and the differences between the old and the new labels, check our product groups page.
