Orgalime German member, ZVEI - Transition time for exemption rules concerning electric motors is way too short

To close gaps in the Eco-Design Directive regarding energy-efficient drives, the European Commission plans to strengthen the Commission Regulation (640/2009) with regard to Eco-Design requirements for electric motors with a transitional period of only 20 days. So far, motors that are intended for the use in heights above 1,000 m (above sea-level) or a surrounding temperature of over 40° C or under minus 15° C are exempted from the Eco-Design Directive. According to plans of the EU, the limit values shall be cut down on a height of 4,000 m, 60° C and minus 30° C.
