EU energy efficiency ratings for vacuum cleaners

According to BBC Business news, as from September 2014 all vacuum cleaners sold in the EU will be rated according to their performance and energy efficiency.
The EU says the measure is part of efforts to meet its goal of cutting carbon emissions and saving energy and wants consumers to take the environment into consideration when they are buying household appliances.
