(Draft) Ecodesign and Energy Labelling regulations for domestic vacuum cleaners (lot 17)

Since August 2012, draft proposals for Ecodesign and Energy Labelling regulations for domestic vacuum cleaners (lot 17) have been circulating for the EC inter-service consultation (internal consultation of the different parts of the Commission).

Draft documents are available here :

- Ecodesign Draft Regulation for Vacuum Cleaners .

Evaluation of the Ecodesign Directive

DG Enterprise and Industry has commissioned the evaluation of the Ecodesign Directive.

The Centre for Strategy & Evaluation Services LLP (CSES) published the final report of the study in April 2012:

The outcome of the study and the review of the Ecodesign Directive were discussed at a meeting of the Ecodesign Consultation Forum on 19 April 2012, on the basis of a Working Document

 

 

Ecodesign Working Plan 2012-2014

On 20 January 2012, the European Commission consulted the Ecodesign Consultation Forum, as required by Article 18 of the Ecodesign Directive, on a draft Ecodesign Working Plan for the period 2012-2014.

A study was undertaken as part of the preparation of the draft ecodesign working plan 2012-2014. The final reports of the study can be found at: http://www.ecodesign-wp2.eu/documents.htm

 

Endorsement of the Methodology for the Ecodesign of Energy-related Products (MEErP)

 

As the scope of the Ecodesign Directive was extended to energy related products in 2009, acomplementarystudy was conducted to  provide the European Commission with the necessary background to review the effectiveness of the MEEuP and extend the methodology to Energy-related Products. The final report of the study  was published in December 2011. More information are available at: www.meerp.eu

The resulting Methodology for the Ecodesign of Energy-related Products, 'MEErP', has been endorsed by the Ecodesign Consultation Forum of 20 January 2012, and will be used by the Commission as the basis for studies from this point onwards to prepare draft implementing measures.

 

LOT 11: Ecodesign regulation on fans published

The Regulation on Fans (ENER Lot 11) was published in the EU Official Journal on 6 April. The Regulation will enter into force on 26 April 2011. The first stage of requirements for fan energy efficiency becomes effective on 1 January 2013 and the second stage on 1 January 2015.

Study for Second Ecodesign Working Plan

In the context of the European Ecodesign Directive, a Working Plan sets out a list of indicative products which are considered as priorities for study and, potentially, the adoption of implementing measures (such as a minimum efficiency requirement). A first Working Plan was published in October 2008 and provided an indicative list of product groups for the period 2009-2011, based on the outcomes of the Study for preparing the first Working Plan.

The Study for the second Ecodesign Working Plan started mid-November 2010, and will provide the background information and analysis which the Commission will use to establish an amended Working Plan under the Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC, whose scope was enlarged to include energy-related products. This amended Ecodesign Working plan will cover the years 2012-2014 and will establish a list of energy-related product groups which will be considered priorities for the adoption of implementing measures under the Ecodesign Directive. The aim of the study is to identify some 25 energy related product groups, ranked by environmental improvement potential.

The draft report of Tasks 1 and 2 was published on the study website on February 18th 2011. In Task 1, the background and context of the study have been described and the methodology for performing the study explained. A list of energy-related product groups was created in Task 2. The first stakeholder meeting of this study will take place on 11th March 2011 in Brussels. Final results are expected to be delivered in October 2011.

Study for the Update of the Methodology for the Ecodesign of Energy-related Products (MEErP)

The Methodology for the Ecodesign of Energy-using Products (MEEuP) was developed in 2005 to serve as a common methodology for evaluating various energy-using products in order to determine if an implementing measure is warranted.

With the enlargement of the Ecodesign Directive to include energy-related products, a new methodology must be developed. As such, the objective of the Study for the Update of the Methodology for the Ecodesign of Energy-related Products (MEErP) is:

  • To review the effectiveness of the methodology and update the MEErP, which has been in use for the last 5 years in ecodesign studies and in the evaluation of implementing measures.
  • To extend the Ecodesign Methodology to Energy-related Products (ErP) and evaluate whether and to which extent new energy-related products fulfill certain criteria for implementing measures under the Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC/.

The study started in January 2001 and is expected to deliver final results in September 2011, but drafts of all documents have to be delivered before June 2011.
