Summary

  • The Ecodesign directive (2009/125/EC) replaced the Energy Using Products Directive in 2009
  • Includes products that do not use energy but impact on energy consumption, such as insulation materials and water-using devices, as well as energy using products.
  • Aims to reduce the environmental impact caused during the manufacture, use and disposal of a very wide range of products.
  • It has the potential to apply to most energy using and energy related products (except vehicles for transport).
  • The Ecodesign Directive is a framework directive only, therefore, supporting legislation is required. The directive contains general requirements and lays out a standard format and rules for specific Implementing Measures to be created for a specific product group or function.
  • Manufacturers and importers are required to ensure their products meet the requirements of the Ecodesign directive and any Implementing Measures that apply to their products.

Note: Implementing Measures are laws created at European Level. They take immediate effect in all member states without a transcription process.
