Cooker Hoods EU Directive

Thursday 5th July 2018

Cooker Hoods - EU Directives


Cooking appliances such as cooker hoods,ovens, hobs and range hoods, are subject to EU energy labelling and ecodesign requirements. By switching to one of the most energy efficient electric ovens, you can save up to £200 over 15 years.  With more efficient cooking appliances, Europe will also be able to save around 1% of the annual energy consumed by households by 2030. This means around 2.7 million tonnes of CO2 avoided annually by 2030 – about the annual emissions of four medium size power plants.

Microwave ovens, outdoor cooking appliances and grills are excluded from these requirements.

Energy labels

New cooking appliances come with an energy label showing their energy efficiency class. These range from A+++ to G for range hoods and ovens. For ovens, these ratings are based on their energy efficiency. For range hoods, in addition to the energy efficiency of the appliance, the efficiency of the extraction, integrated lighting system and grease filtering system is also taken into account.




Ecodesign regulations apply to all ovens, hobs, and range hoods sold in the EU. These regulations set energy efficiency, performance and product information requirements.
