Our shop, staff and some of our Sebo vacuums were featured on several BBC news items today on the subject of these new rules.

Here are two:

How are these rules going to affect aftermarket replacement motors and importing machines?

They won't.

Would be still legally be able to import a brand new high wattage machine after these rules kick in from somewhere that works on the 220/250v and isn't covered by these stupid eu rules?

Yes.

Would buying an aftermarket motor be limited? Would we still be able to get 1600w aftermarket yak style replacement motors or would that be classed as an upright/canister even though it's just a motor?

Spare parts are not included in these rules.

It's very true what they are saying, the appliances might be more efficient but there are lots more I've them, and how do the class then as efficient when you can't turn them off or repair them and they end up in landfill.
