Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) or Energy efficiency index (EEI) is coming to some commercial refrigeration models on July 1st 2016. This is a legal EU requirement that you must comply with if you are selling commercial refrigeration.

This will initially apply to all integral storage fridges or freezers with an internal fan (solid door/drawers). It does not apply to coldrooms or blast chillers/freezers or saladettes (units with a well for gastronorm pans).

If you have a website or are printing literature from 1st July 2016 you must show MEPS/EEI information. This is a legal requirement.

You must show the energy rating of the unit near the price with same font size as the price. You must also show capacity in litres, kWh per annum and climate class. The EEI label for the products shown must also be available.

We are currently compiling information from manufacturers and will publish it as downloadable data and images for the MEPS labels as soon as it is available. 

Please see web-links below for full legal requirements in relation to this EU regulation
