I have been asked to reply.
Mandatory energy labelling in the European Union (EU) is covered by Framework Directive 92/75/EC, which requires that certain appliances display an energy label where they are offered for sale. This does not apply to outdoor patio heaters.
The European Commission has started a review of the EU mandatory energy labelling scheme and the most recent information we have is that it intends to bring forward a revised proposal in early 2008.
The UK supports the extension of the labelling scheme to a much wider range of energy using products.
