The EU Ecodesign regulation 2015/1095 come into effect in the entire EU since July 1st 2016.
The regulation defines in particular the “setting of Ecodesign requirements for condensing units and process chillers” by defining the required Minimum Efficiency Performance Standards (MEPS) that all the condensing unit have to comply.
There are two stages of application:
Tier 1: fix the required MEPS from 01/07/2016
Tier 2: fix the required MEPS from 01/07/2018
The MEPS value of unit must be declared by the manufacturer in the declaration of conformity.
MEPS value are defined considering cooling capacity and application range of the condensing units, according to the following scheme:
The declared COP and SEPR value have to meet the minimum value listed in the following graph:
For Condensing Units intended charged with a refrigerant fluid with GWP lower than 150, COP and SEPR values can be lower by a maximum of 15% as of July 2016 and by a maximum of 10% as of July 2018.
SCM FRIGO is partner of the ASERCOM Condensing Unit Certification Program and has started the performance certification process with the first condensing unit passed certification already in 2014.
SCM FRIGO is implementing all the required CE Declaration of Conformity as well as supplementary documents for all product series to comply the regulation. You can find the complete documentation in this area.
