The EU Product Database for Energy Labelling needs to meet the objectives stated in Regulation 2017/1369. It has to be set-up so that the burden for suppliers is minimised (Art 12.7a), data security is ensured (Art 12.9), terms and conditions – including the scope – are known in advance, and a fair and level playing field is safeguarded by identifying free-riders (Recital 6).
