Comments on the study for the amended ECO DESIGN WORKING PLAN

Published: 3 October 2011

Policies & Issues: Environment

UPDATE

As producers of all equipment regulated or currently assessed under the Eco design Directive, Orgalime industries are by far the most affected sector.  Orgalime fully supports the cradle to grave approach of the Eco design Directive, which addresses all environmental aspects of Energy related Products throughout their whole life cycle.

Given the experience that regulators have now gained with this instrument, the upcoming Working Plan should, in our view, be built upon the experience gained with the implementation of the Eco design Directive to date, taking into account the first Working Plan.
