Energy classification of sanitary tapware

It is important to save energy for a household and through the open and voluntary energy classification from SIS / TK 519, tapware manufacturers, building companies, property owners and authorities have agreed on a label similar to that for white goods.

Cause

The purpose of the energy classification is to help e.g. consumers and real estate players by impartially choosing energy-saving sanitary tapware such as kitchen mixers, washbasin mixers and thermostatic mixers with showers.

Laboratory tests have shown that there are large differences in energy use between different brands and models of tap water mixers.

An energy-classified sanitary fitting in classes A, B and C also benefits from an assessment in a construction product declaration.

Method

Energy classification and labeling shall be based on testing according to Swedish standards developed within SIS Technical Committee Energy labeling of tap water mixers, SIS / TK 519. From measured energy use, sanitary mixers are classified according to the standards SS 820000 or SS 820001.

RISE can help with the entire process of energy classification of a tap water mixer, everything from testing, certification and annual inspection visits.

Deliveries

The certificate is published on the RISE website.

Holders can refer to the certificate and show that the product has been tested and certified by a third party.

A certificate is issued with a validity period of 10 years. The certificate can then be renewed. The validity presupposes that the certified products that are continuously placed on the market meet the requirements and that the continuous review and assessment of the manufacturer's system for self-inspection is carried out according to plan.
