Orgalime welcomes the opportunity to comment on the Standardisation request addressed to the European standardisation organisations on standards concerning material efficiency aspects in support of the implementation of Directive 2009/125/EC establishing a framework for the setting of ecodesign requirements for energy-related products (M/XXX1).

As producers of almost all equipment regulated or currently assessed under the Eco design Directive (2009/125/EC), Orgalime industries are by far the most affected sector. Given the experience gained with the implementation of the Eco design Directive so far, Orgalime would like to provide the following comments related to the above mentioned standardisation request [more in download]
