 The regulation for TVs was published on 30 November 2010 and gave manufacturers or retailers the option to apply the labels on devices in stores from 20 December 2010. Since that time, device manufacturers have been allowed to voluntarily switch over to the new labels. After a twelve month transition period following the publication of the new regulation, manufacturers will then be obliged to place the new labels on all devices put onto the market: starting on 30 November 2011!
