EUMA (European Market Access) is the Domus Line project aimed at the correct implementation and adaptation of all products to the new EU regulations – commonly known as Ecodesign and Energy Labelling -, which is essential to maintain the CE conformity of articles, and thus allow them to be marketed in the EU market.
The ambitious goal of EU climate legislation, one of the elements of theEuropean Green Deal, is zero climate impact by 2050. In December 2020, EU environment ministers reached an agreement on the reduction of net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55 per cent compared to 1990 levels, to be achieved by 2030.
For several years now, new EU regulations have updated the rules for the ecodesign of various products that must be powered by electricity in order to function, and introduced new energy labels that mainly cover products in the domestic sector, including light sources and power supply units. Improving energy efficiency clearly aims to combat climate change, provide significant financial savings for businesses and households, improve air quality, and enable the Union to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels, whose availability is increasingly affected by geostrategic tensions.
Household energy consumption accounts for just over a quarter (26.3%) of all energy consumption in the European Union (Eurostat 2019 figures), and the sources of this share are as follows: 32% from natural gas, 25% from electricity, 12% from oil and 20% from renewable sources. The main sources of consumption in European citizens’ homes are heating (64%), water heating (15%), lighting (14%) and cooking (6%).
In this context, Domus Line is strongly committed to providing information and assistance with respect to the new legislation adopted by the European Commission with the EUMA project, and to enabling our industrial and commercial partners to fully exploit the potential of these changes and turn them into a competitive advantage.
Consisting of training of the personnel involved, the performance of preliminary technical analysis, electrical and photometric tests, document development and market communication, EUMA is aimed at re-confirming product conformity by prioritising the market in EU countries, and indirectly also non-EU markets that re-export our products to the EU.
The aim of sharing knowledge and expertise on this sensitive topic is reflected in the ECODESIGN ECOLABELLING Guidelines, part of the Domus Line EUMA (European Market Access) project. Their purpose is to improve the information policy on eco design and energy labelling of Domus Line. Our guidance and advice is aimed at all stakeholders who are involved in various ways in the implementation and compliance process of the new Ecodesign and Ecolabelling regulations.
