Are pumps which CAN be used for chemicals covered by the regulation?

The scope of the regulation is clearly set out in Article 1 and using the definitions in Article 2. The Ecodesign requirements are for rotodynamic water pumps for pumping clean water. These products might also be used by the end-user for pumping other fluids – however, it is important that the intended use of the product at the placing on the market is for pumping clean water.
