Article 3 — Obligations of suppliers

  1. Suppliers of light sources shall ensure that:
    1. each light source which is placed on the market as an independent product (i.e. not in a containing product) and in packaging, is supplied with a label, printed on the packaging, in the format as set out in Annex III;
    2. the values of the parameters included in the product information sheet, as set out in Annex V, are entered into the public part of the product database;
    3. if specifically requested by the dealer, the product information sheet shall be made available in printed form;
    4. the content of the technical documentation, as set out in Annex VI, is entered into the product database;
    5. any visual advertisement for a specific model of light source contains the energy efficiency class of that model and the range of energy efficiency classes available on the label, in accordance with Annex VII and Annex VIII;
    6. any technical promotional material concerning a specific model of light source, including technical promotional material on the internet, which describes its specific technical parameters, includes the energy efficiency class of that model and the range of energy efficiency classes available on the label, in accordance with Annex VII;
    7. an electronic label in the format and containing the information, as set out in Annex III, is made available to dealers for each light source model;
    8. an electronic product information sheet, as set out in Annex V, is made available to dealers for each light source model;
    9. by way of derogation from Article 11(13)(b) of Regulation (EU) 2017/1369, upon request by dealers and in accordance with Article 4(e), printed labels to rescale products are provided as a sticker, of the same size as the one which already exists.
  2. By way of derogation from Article 11(13)(a) of Regulation (EU) 2017/1369, the supplier shall, when placing a light source on the market, provide it with the existing label until 31 August 2021 and with the rescaled label from 1 September 2021. The supplier may choose to already provide light sources placed on the market during the period from 1 July to 31 August 2021 with the rescaled label, if no light sources belonging to the same model or equivalent models were placed on the market before 1 July 2021. In that case, the dealer shall not offer those light sources for sale before 1 September 2021. The supplier shall notify the dealer concerned of that consequence as soon as possible, including when it includes such light sources in its offers to dealers.
  3. Suppliers of containing products shall:
    1. provide information on the contained light source(s), as specified in point 2 of Annex V;
    2. upon request by market surveillance authorities, provide information on how light sources can be removed for verification without permanent damage to the light source.
  4. The energy efficiency class shall be calculated in accordance with Annex II.
