How to upload EU Energy Efficiency Information on Amazon

On the product detail page, Energy Efficiency information is displayed through a special Energy Labeling widget that activates as soon as specific product attributes have been provided.

In order to comply with energy labeling regulatory requirements, we request that you input/upload required information when listing new products governed by the energy labeling regulation, or for updating existing listings. Ensure that any energy rating information included as free text or in image files corresponds to the required rating. This includes, but is not limited to, product titles, product bullet points, and product fiches. On March 1st 2021, new energy labeling requirements came into force and affected the categories of products listed below.
