While televisions are getting larger and the technology is rapidly evolving, the MEPS and ERL requirements for televisions have not been updated since 2013.

E3 is reviewing the existing requirements for televisions and will assess opportunities to make further energy efficient gains.

E3 is commencing preparations for a Television Consultation Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS). The consultation will consider the definition of televisions and options for MEPS levels.
