Energy Related Products - ErP Technical Documentation and File Verification

Because ErP are now covered in the ErP directive (formerly EuP directive), you need to be sure that your products measure up to the standards required. SGS offer the trusted and reliable service you need to ensure that they do so.

ErP are products that use energy, or that do not use energy but have an indirect impact on energy use. Improvement in the design of these products can result in significant energy saving. For example, water-saving taps and showerheads reduce water consumption and therefore the energy used for hot water.

Our ErP services cover all your needs when it comes to ensuring you comply with the energy related products directive. We offer guidance, training and performance testing. We also help you prepare the technical documentation file (TDF) for your products.

Our services

We offer the following ErP services:

  • Seminars – both open and customer-specific
  • Expert services
  • Testing services
  • Environmental management services
  • Verification of TDF and certification

Our tailor-made training helps to ensure that you comply with the ErP directive and its implementation measure (IM) standards. We give you guidance on your specific product and what obligations are imposed on manufacturers and sub-contractors.


We arrange regular open seminars on ErP and also give guidance on ecodesign procedures, on your specific product and the obligations imposed on manufacturers and sub-contractors.
