Energy Efficient Products

Is it enough to have some sort of statement from the purchaser or should the producer ask for some official document and from whom?

Is the producer obliged to ask for some sort of evidence for that transformer, which is not comply with the request of this Regulation, in this category?

Manufacturers of large power transformers are still required to produce the technical documentation and to meet the product information requirements set out in Annex 1, points 3 and 4, even if they consider that such transformers are exempt from the energy efficiency requirements on the basis of the last two points in Article 1.2 of the regulation. In such cases, manufacturers should provide all the necessary technical and economic evidence to the national market surveillance authorities to prove their case.
