Introduction

Turkey has implemented most of the European legislation on energy efficiency:

  1. Commission Directive 92/75/EC, which imposes a labelling requirement on suppliers of major household appliances (electric ovens, refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, combined washer-dryers, dishwashers, tumble dryers, household lamps and household air-conditioners).

  2. Commission Directive 96/57/EC, which sets mandatory limits for the energy consumption of household refrigerators and freezers.


Directive 92/75/EC has not been implemented by one framework law, but by several executive orders, which are only available in Turkish.

In line with the EC Directives 92/75/EC, the European Council of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances (CECED) has established several voluntary agreements with energy efficiency standards for several product groups: refrigerators, dishwashers, washing-machines.

Another voluntary agreement has been established for office equipment, coordinated by the Energy Star Programme; please see below for more information.
