ANTICSS project will soon move into the labs
ECOS is partner in 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.
In the last few months, ECOS and the Austrian Energy Agency (AEA) have been carrying out a stakeholder consultation, which has allowed the project to collect around 40 cases of circumvention from market surveillance authorities, industry, consumer associations, environmental NGOs and testing labs.
Based on the information gathered ANTICSS will now decide on the product categories that will be tested in labs to study the suspect behaviour and propose alternative.
The project team met in Lisbon on 22 and 23 May to discuss progress and is now ready for the next stage!
