On-going product testing by ANTICSS
Refrigerators are among the product categories checked to detect possible circumvention, currently being tested in an independent laboratory.
TVs among the product categories tested by ANTICSS
Televisions are among the product categories tested to identify possible circumvention efforts, which would limit the energy efficiency benefits intended by the energy label and Ecodesign legislations.
Project testing efforts continue
The ANTICSS project continues in its efforts to identify circumvention against the energy labelling and Ecodesign energyefficiency-related requirements. Dishwashers are among the product categories currently tested in independent labs.

BLOG: New ways of circumventing legislation and standards uncovered
European legislation on ecodesign and energy labelling makes an important contribution to achieving climate protection goals. However, their effect is endangered if manufacturers fail to comply with legal requirements or deliberately circumvent prescribed test procedures. Kathrin Graulich from the Oeko-Institut, coordinator of ANTICSS, explains the project efforts to undercover the tricks used by manufacturers of electrical appliances to circumvent minimum requirements and measurement standards in the field of ecodesign and energy labelling.
