The ATLETE II project is selecting 50 models of washing machines available on EU market for testing according to the new Energy Labelling and Ecodesign requirements.

The project will undertake a full scale testing activity, measuring energy consumption and other performance claims of 50 models of washing machines. The project is the first large-scale effort to investigate the pan-EU compliance of washing machines with the new energy labelling and ecodesign requirements.

The project aims to improve the capacity of testing laboratories and at the same time support co-operation among Member State Authorities for effective market surveillance. A protocol, signed by 27 manufacturers, enables companies to take remedy actions for products that are non-compliant.
