ANTICSS is testing products for circumvention
Currently, project partners are immersed in the work package focusing on the assessment of circumvention impacts in laboratory testing. The aim is to analyse and demonstrate the risks of circumvention, and to assess its impacts by means of laboratory testing.
For a justified selection of product categories and reported cases of circumvention or jeopardy effects, alternative test procedures have been designed, which are being applied in laboratory testing to unmask circumvention habits in test situations (see „Alternative test methods and approaches”).
ECOS is leading on the task aiming at selecting a number of specific models that will be tested in practice. The deliverable “Model selection procedure” presents the semi-random selection methodology applied.
In the coming months, ANTICSS will boast robust test results on circumvention and will communicate the main outcomes and recommendations in the form of webinars, workshops and further reports.
ECOS is partner of the EU funded H2020 ANTICSS project, which aims at assessing and defining circumvention in relation to EU Ecodesign and Energy Labelling legislation and harmonised standards.
