European Commission


The European Commission has launched a study on pumps for the preparation of further and/or more advanced ecodesign and/or energy labelling requirements. The study will review and build upon Commission Regulation (EU) No 547/2012 and the preparatory studies on “Lot 28 waste water pumps” and “Lot 29 other pumps”.

The study is carried out by Van Holsteijn en Kemna BV and Viegand Maagøe A/S for the European Commission, DG Energy. The study started in December 2014 and is expected to be finished in January 2017.
This website will provide information on the study mainly for EU Member States and stakeholders. Please register to receive updates on stakeholder meetings and publication of documents.

The illustration on top of the pages is showing one of the first pump for fluids moved by electromagnetism (wood engraving from L'èlectricitè by J. Baille, Paris - Hachette 1868).
