European Union Market Access – Compliance Changes for Battery Chargers and External Power Supplies

European Union Flags Against Blue Sky

June 1, 2020

Starting in April 2020, new energy efficiency regulations will be enforced for selling in Europe. The eco-design regulation 278/2009 sets requirements for low losses at no load, the lowest efficiency over the load area and the technical documentation. Existing eco-design requirements for external power supplies include most AC/AC and AC/DC units that are stand-alone and have an output of up to 250 watts. UL can confirm your product’s compliance to this new requirement.
