Outcomes: INTAS final conference on market surveillance for ecodesign

Thank you for attending the INTAS project conference dedicated to effective market surveillance for ecodesign, with a focus on large industrial products. The conference allowed for lively discussions with the audience, which assembled over 70 delegates from a variety of backgrounds. The event also saw the launch of two important reports on the INTAS methodology and policy recommendations for both power transformers and industrial fans (both reports can be downloaded below).


This one-day event aimed to discuss the state of play and next steps for European market surveillance for ecodesign, as well as share the methodology and policy recommendations for a better market surveillance of both power transformers and industrial fans, with a perspective to expand their scope to other large industrial products. INTAS project partners shared their findings and conclusions, joined by experts speakers from the European Commission, industry and market surveillance authorities.

MSAs and market actors face difficulties in establishing and verifying compliance with energy performance requirements under the Ecodesign Directive, especially in the case of customised products which are unsuitable for testing in laboratories, are costly to transport and there is an overall lack of expertise, experience and resources available for its testing.

The H2020 INTAS project addresses the need to support European Market Surveillance Authorities (MSAs) deliver compliance with Ecodesign requirements for large industrial products, specifically transformers and fans. INTAS will provide technical and cooperative support, as well as capacity building activities, to MSAs in charge of enforcing Ecodesign regulations, and help support industry understand what their obligations are under the Ecodesign Directive.
