European Committee for Standardization (CEN) Project ECOTEST

Project Details

Description

This project is funded by European Committee for Standardization (CEN) under the following EU regulations:
Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No. 811/2013
Supplementing Directive 2010/30/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council with regards to the energy labelling of space heaters etc.
Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No. 812/2013
Supplementing Directive 2010/30/EU of the European Parliament of the Council with regard to the energy labelling of water heaters etc.
The project is focused on evaluation of the standards used and measurement reproducibility of EU laboratories for the application of Ecodesign requirements and labelling of heating and hot water production appliances.
There are eight work packages:
• WP 1 Emissions - CEN/TC 238 (including sound power level)
• WP2 Uncertainty calculation method of the emissions, efficiency and all other parameters and common protocols for the INTER-COMPARISON + uncertainties
• WP3 Ecodesign testing of sanitary hot water work package with CEN/TC 109
• WP4 Work package with CEN/CENELEC JWG FCGA (on mCHP)
• WP5 Work package with CEN/TC 299 (on gas heat pump)
• WP6 Work package with CEN/TC 57 (fuel oil boilers)
• WP7 Work package with CEN/TC 113 (electrical heat pumps)
• WP8 Work package with CEN/TC 312 (solar heaters)
Overall objectives:
1: EVALUATION OF EU LABORATORIES: “to provide for each parameter measured for the application of (EU) No 811/12/13/14 2013 and each appliance a value of the inter-laboratory reproducibility obtained with the test procedures of the corresponding standard developed”
2: EVALUATION OF EU STANDARDS: “to propose improvements of the procedures from the standards”
3: EVALUATION OF EU market surveillance TOLERANCES: “to propose for all parameters and appliances tested a value of a reasonable tolerance that shall be used for the market surveillance”.
