Ecodesign & Energy Labelling


Verification of compliance is a major condition for the success of every European policy, including the Ecodesign and Energy Labelling policies. The current level of market surveillance by Member States is clearly insufficient and there is a need for more systemic and effective product checks. Our goal is to ensure the EU’s market surveillance regime is sufficiently robust to ensure that environmental benefits of Ecodesign and Energy Labelling are not lost.

What we are working on

  • H2020 ANTICCS project, whose aim is to assess if and how Ecodesign and Energy labelling legislations and harmonised standards can be circumvented in order to achieve a better product performance. As such, the project will enable to better detect and prevent future circumvention and support a more effective enforcement of EU legislation. More on:
  • We aim to ensure that the EU database for products with an Energy Label (EPREL) delivers for market surveillance purposes and consumer information.
  • The H2020 project HARP, developing a tool based on the Energy Labelling to motivate consumers to plan the replacement of their old, often inefficient heating system.
