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

Published: 13 November 2014

Policies & Issues: Environment

Orgalime 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 hereby provide our comments on the preparatory study to establish the Ecodesign Working Plan for the period 2015-20171 (WP3).  Our remarks are based on the second stakeholder meeting, which took place on 29 October 2014.

We recognise the work done by the consultants, and particularly support the conclusion that more in-depth preparatory work is needed, before any of the Product Groups (PGs) suggested could indeed be included in a next Working Plan.
