i.The passive standby consumption of the television shall be ≤ 0,30 W except where the condition in part ii is fulfilled.
ii.For televisions with an easily visible hard off-switch, such that when the switch is operated to the off position, the television’s energy consumption is < 0,01 W, the passive standby consumption of the television shall be ≤ 0,50 W.
b)Maximum energy consumption

Televisions shall have energy consumption in on-mode of ≤ 200 W.

c)Energy Efficiency

Until 31 December 2010, televisions placed on the market bearing the Ecolabel shall have an on-mode power consumption equal to or lower than 0,64 · (20 W + A · 4,3224 W/dm2).

From 1 January 2011, until 31 December 2012 televisions placed on the market bearing the Ecolabel shall have an on-mode power consumption equal to or lower than 0,51 · (20 W + A · 4,3224 W/dm2).

Where A is the visible screen area(1) expressed in dm2.

Assessment and verification (points a) to c)): the television shall be tested for its on-mode power consumption in its condition as delivered to the customer, according to the revised IEC62087 standard, using the dynamic broadcast video signal (Methods of Measurement for the Power Consumption of Audio, Video and Related Equipment). If the television has a forced menu upon initial start up, the default shall be the setting which is recommended by the manufacturer for normal home use. A test report shall be provided by the applicant to the awarding competent body demonstrating that the television meets the requirements set out in points a) to c).

For meeting the conditions of a) ii), the applicant shall declare that their television complies with the requirement and provide photographic evidence regarding the hard off-switch.

For meeting the conditions of c), the applicant shall demonstrate that any of their Ecolabelled televisions when first placed on the market after the dates shown in the criterion will meet the appropriate energy efficiency criterion. If this cannot be demonstrated the competent body will only issue the Ecolabel licence for the period for which compliance can be demonstrated.

(1)

Screen Area: This is the area of the screen in dm2. It is equal to [screen size × screen size × 0,480] for a standard screen (4:3 aspect ratio) and [screen size × screen size × 0,427] for a wide screen (16:9 aspect ratio).
