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).

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]
