Introduction

Material efficiency is one building block of a circular economy. To increase the material efficiency of products,

different aspects like durability, reparability, reusability, remanufacturability, recyclability and recycled materials

content need to be assessed. The horizontal standards of the EN 4555X series provide general methodologies

to assess different material efficiency aspects of energy-related products. These horizontal documents need to

be adapted in order to be applicable for specific products / product groups.

1 Scope

This document summarizes the observations of CLC/TC 59X on the EN 4555X series of standards in view to

applying them to household and similar electrical appliances.

This document assesses the applicability of EN 45552 – EN 45559 to household and similar electrical

appliances that are in the scope of Ecodesign (2009/125/EC).

NOTE EN 45552, EN 45553, EN 45554, EN 45555, EN 45556, EN 45557, EN 45558 and EN 45559 are referred to as

the EN 4555X series of standards to increase readability.

This document highlights where further work on metrics and measurement methodologies is necessary or may

be needed for household and similar electrical appliances beyond each of the EN 4555X series of standards

listed in Clause 5.
2 Normative references

The following documents are referred to in the text in such a way that some or all of their content constitutes

requirements of this document. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the

latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies.

3 Terms and definitions

For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in CLC/TR 45550 apply. In the absence of a

definition in CLC/TR 45550, the user of this document may refer to the following sources:

4 General considerations

The considerations on applying the EN 4555X series of standards to household and similar electrical appliances

were developed using the following methodology:
— The respective standards were checked for normative requirements;

— The normative requirements were discussed in light of applicability to household and similar electrical

appliances;

— The need for generic adaptation and product specific adaptation were identified;

— For EN 45554:2020, reparability were taken as a proxy for the considerations presented in 5.3. These

considerations apply to reusability and upgradeability, too.

CLC/TR 50727:2022 (E)

It is advised to use the same approach to further refine the observations for product specific standards. It is

further advised to use the existing structure in the EN 4555X series of standards when developing product

specific documents.

A general observation is that the EN 4555X series of standards, excluding EN 45557, EN 45558 and EN 45559,

are not directly applicable and need an adaptation in the form of a product/product group specific standard.

Uncertainty reporting is essential to ensure measured or assessed data are interpreted correctly. Especially

when data of measurements or assessments are to be compared between laboratories or when normative

requirements are set up, it is necessary to know the uncertainty with which data can be measured or assessed.

NOTE IEC TR 63250 “HOUSEHOLD AND SIMILAR ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES – METHOD FOR MEASURING

PERFORMANCE – ASSESSMENT OF REPEATABILITY, REPRODUCIBILITY AND UNCERTAINTY” deals with the

determination of repeatability and reproducibility of test methods used for assessing the performance characteristics of

household and similar electrical appliances. It also provides guidance for carrying out round robin tests. It also specifies the

uncertainty reporting of measurements of household and similar electrical appliances. It describes methods to estimate the

uncertainty of a measured result and to predict the range of measured values when the same appliance is measured in

another laboratory applying the same measurement method.

A test method, where applicable, needs to ensure reproducible results, using e.g. IEC TR 63250.

5 Special considerations for applying the EN 4555X series of standards to
household and similar electrical appliances

5.1 EN 45552 - General method for the assessment of the durability of energy-related

products

EN 45552 is not directly applicable. An adaptation in the form of a product/product group specific standard for

every product/product group is needed. Consideration will also need to be given to different technologies used

in a single product category.

The general method to assess the durability of an energy-related product should be used for household and

similar electrical appliances. However, some amendments are needed when drafting standards for these

appliances:

— It is recommended to base the assessment of the durability of a product on its reliability and its reparability

related to this durability assessment.

— When defining limiting states, all main/primary functions should be equally considered for multifunctional

products.

— It is recommended to work on the definition/concept of limiting state. A clear distinction between reversible

and non-reversible limiting state is advisable.

5.2 EN 45553 - General method for the assessment of the ability to remanufacture energy-

related products

EN 45553 is not directly applicable. An adaptation is needed of the general method to assess the ability of

remanufacturing an energy-related product in the form of a product/product group specific standard for every

household and similar electrical appliance product/product group.

upgrade energy-related products
