Elta publishes guidance to ErP legislation

Elta, fans, ErP

Elta Fans has published a comprehensive and easy-to-understand 48-page document entitled ‘How fans are affected by the ErP Directive’ (Energy-related Products). The aim of the document is to offer straightforward, no-nonsense guidance for potential purchasers to understand the implications of the legislation — now and in the future.

Technical manager Alan Macklin explains, ‘The introduction of mandatory energy-efficiency legislation is the biggest issue the fan industry has ever faced. Despite its importance, there is still a lack of understanding in many quarters, and this document is designed to help dispel the confusion, to cut through the complexity of the legislation and to spell out simply what it means for the industry. I urge anybody involved in specifying fans to get a copy, as ignoring or not understanding the legislation is not an option.’

The document can be viewed online at erpfans.co.uk. A hard copy is also available.
