Published: 12 June 2016

Policies & Issues: Energy & Climate

In view of the European Parliament´s ITRE committee vote on 14 June 2016, CECED, DIGITALEUROPE and ORGALIME call for the support of honourable Members of the European Parliament for a final committee report that:

  • preserves Intellectual Property Rights, confidential business data and know how.
  • gives preference to market surveillance and enforcement programmes that effectively combat free riding and unfair competition.
  • increases energy efficiency.
  • provides a maximum of consumer confidence in the label.
  • rewards top performing products and associated investments in energy efficiency through a simple, stable, credible, trustworthy energy label for consumer products.
  • guarantees the functioning of the Internal Market for products with fully harmonised requirements at EU level.
  • establishes a sufficiently generic and flexible EU framework taking into account the inherent different product characteristics and efficiency potentials of the various products in scope according to their specific impact assessment studies.
  • provides maximum legal stability and planning certainty.
