Products in the scope of the Directive have to be have their efficiency measurements evaluated by a Notified Body (such as BSI) under both “full-load” and “part-load” test conditions to try and simulate real-world use of the product. A two-stage process is specified, as follows:
1) Type Examination – Laboratory measurement of the efficiency to ensure it complies with the essential requirements of the directive. This may be at one of BSI labs, the client’s lab, or a partner lab.
2) Production Surveillance – Ongoing assessment of production processes to ensure the minimum efficiency requirements continue to be met.
