Orgalime comments on the preparatory study to establish the Ecodesign Working Plan 2015-2017 under the Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC

Published: 17 July 2014

Policies & Issues: Environment

Orgalime fully supports Directive 2009/125/EC, which establishes a framework for the setting of eco design requirements on Energy related Products (ErP) addressing all environmental aspects related to such products from a life cycle perspective.  We are pleased to provide our comments on the preparatory study to establish the Ecodesign Working Plan for the period 2015-20171.  Our remarks are based on the first stakeholder meeting, which took place on 3 July 2014.

We recognise the work done by the consultants, and particularly support the conclusion that product groups in the scope of a preparatory study, but not of a regulation, should not be included once again in the new working plan. We would like to contribute with the experience of our industry, to create a committed, while realistic and workable, programme for the years to come. Nevertheless, we have identified a number of irregularities in the preparatory study presented during the stakeholder meeting [more in download]
