The EVA’s Technical Committee has updated its EVA EMP – Energy Measurement Protocol. The main difference in the new version, EMP 3.0., is that the document is divided into two parts: chilled, frozen & ambient machines (EMP 3.0a), and hot & cold drinks machines (EMP 3.0b).
Furthermore, the EVA Technical Committee will submit its EMP 3.0b protocol to CENELEC, which is the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization. The process could take one to three years, and the use of the protocol as a standard will remain voluntary, as it is now.
At present, the protocol is already very popular amongst machine manufacturers in the vending industry because its assessments respond proactively to the requirements of public procurements.
The new EVA EMP 3.0 is available by simply registering on the EVA’s webpage: http://www.vendingeurope.eu/en/standards_protocols/standards-registration.html.
