On 23 August, a new regulation was published, which updates the previous ecodesign requirements for products with networked standby modes (Regulation 1275/2008/EC and Regulation 642/2009/EC). With the new regulation, networked standby will now be considered in the eco-design requirements of electrical and electronic household and office equipment, as well as televisions.
