High-powered hairdryers under threat as EU considers ban

Monday 1 September, 2014

A study commissioned by the European Commission has identified electric appliances which could be restricted in the EU in an attempt to curb energy consumption and help tackle climate change. Some appliances include household electrical items such as hairdryers, toasters and kettle. Although, it is unknown how many of the 30 appliances will be banned, vacuum cleaners above 1600 watts have now been banned, as of today, from being made or being imported into the EU.
