Towards Eco Design of Energy Using Products

Published: 24 March 2005

Policies & Issues: Environment

With view to the further proceedings of the European institutions on the draft eco design of energy using products directive , Orgalime calls upon the institutions to strive for a well balanced and well-defined proposal, which would integrate environment, growth and jobs for our industry that competes at global markets.

The enclosed position highlights the guiding principles and ways forward that European producers of energy using products consider fundamental and which must not be lost in the further proceedings, in particular:

- Preservation of the internal market

- Proper and effective market control as the basis for fair competition amongst European and Non-European manufacturers

- Coherence with existing well established and proven concepts, especially in the area of conformity assessment: No 'pre-distribution verification' – no additional administrative burden

- Well balanced and workable criteria and procedures for the selection of product groups and the establishment of eco design requirements
