ANNEX II
Measurements and calculations
1. For the purposes of compliance and verification of compliance with the requirements of this Regulation,
measurements and calculations shall be made using harmonised standards the reference numbers of which have
been published in the Official Journal of European Union, or other reliable, accurate and reproducible method, which
takes into account the generally recognised state of the art methods, and whose results are deemed to be of low
uncertainty. They shall fulfil all of the following technical parameters.
2. The determination of the seasonal energy consumption and efficiency for seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) and
seasonal coefficient of performance (SCOP) shall take into account:
(a) European cooling and heating season(s), as defined in Table 1 below;
(b) reference design conditions, as defined in Table 3 below;
(c) electric energy consumption for all relevant modes of operation, using time periods as defined in Table 4 below;
(d) effects of the degradation of the energy efficiency caused by on/off cycling (if applicable) depending on the type of
control of the cooling and/or heating capacity;
(e) corrections on the seasonal coefficients of performance in conditions where the heating load can not be met by
the heating capacity;
(f) the contribution of a back-up heater (if applicable) in the calculation of the seasonal efficiency of a unit in heating
mode.
3. Where the information relating to a specific model, being a combination of indoor and outdoor unit(s), has been
obtained by calculation on the basis of design, and/or extrapolation from other combinations, the documentation
should include details of such calculations and/or extrapolations, and of tests undertaken to verify the accuracy of the
calculations undertaken (including details of the mathematical model for calculating performance of such
combinations, and of measurements taken to verify this model).
4. The rated energy efficiency ratio (EER rated ) and, when applicable, rated coefficient of performance (COP rated ) for single
and double duct air conditioners shall be established at the standard rating conditions as defined in Table 2 below.
5. The calculation of seasonal electricity consumption for cooling (and/or heating) shall take into account electric energy
consumption of all relevant modes of operation, as defined in Table 3 below, using operational hours, as defined in
Table 4 below.
6. The comfort fan efficiency shall be determined on the basis of the nominal air flow rate of the unit divided by the
nominal electric power input of the unit.

ANNEX III
Verification procedure for market surveillance purposes
When performing the market surveillance checks referred to in Article 3(2) of Directive 2009/125/EC, the authorities of
the Member States shall apply the following verification procedure for the requirements set out in Annex I.
1. The authorities of the Member State shall test one single unit.
2. The air conditioner model, except single and double duct air conditioners, shall be considered to comply with the
requirements set out in Annex I, as applicable, to this Regulation, if its seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER), or
seasonal coefficient for performance (SCOP), if applicable, is not less than the declared value minus 8 % at the declared
capacity of the unit. The SEER and SCOP values shall be established in accordance with Annex II.
The model of a single and double duct air conditioner shall be considered to comply with the requirements set out in
Annex I, as applicable, to this Regulation, if the results for off-mode and standby-mode conditions do not exceed the
limit values by more than 10 %, and if the energy efficiency ratio (EER rated ), or coefficient for performance (COP rated ), if
applicable, is not less than the declared value minus 10 %. The EER and COP values shall be established in accordance
with Annex II.
The air conditioner model shall be considered to comply with the requirements set out in this Regulation, as
applicable, if the maximum sound power level does not exceed more than 2 dB(A) of the declared value.
3. If the result referred to in point 2 is not achieved, the market surveillance authority shall randomly select three
additional units of the same model for testing.
4. The air conditioner model, except single and double duct air conditioners, shall be considered to comply with the
requirements set out in Annex I, as applicable, to this Regulation, if the average of the three units for the seasonal
energy efficiency ratio (SEER), or seasonal coefficient of performance (SCOP), if applicable, is not less than the declared
value minus 8 % at the declared capacity of the unit. The SEER and SCOP values shall be established in accordance
with Annex II.
The model of a single and double duct air conditioner shall be considered to comply with the requirements set out in
Annex I, as applicable, to this Regulation, if the average of the results of the three units for off-mode and standby-
mode conditions do not exceed the limit values by more than 10 %, and if the average of the energy efficiency ratio
(EER rated ), or coefficient of performance (COP rated ), if applicable, is not less than the declared value minus 10 %. The
EER and COP values shall be established in accordance with Annex II.
The air conditioner model shall be considered to comply with the requirements set out in this Regulation, as
applicable, if the average of the maximum sound power level does not exceed more than 2 dB(A) of the declared value.
5. If the results referred to in point 4 are not achieved, the model shall be considered not to comply with this Regulation.
For the purposes of checking conformity with the requirements of this Regulation, Member States shall apply the
procedures referred to in Annex II, and harmonised standards the reference numbers of which have been published in
the Official Journal of the European Union, or other reliable, accurate and reproducible calculation and measurement
methods, which take into account the generally recognised state-of-the-art.
