Ecodesign & Energy Labelling

Material efficiency standards

In order to support Ecodesign provisions for material efficiency, methods for the assessment and measurement of relevant aspects such as product durability, reparability and recyclability are under development. ECOS participates in these processes under M/543 and also aspires to participate in the development of such methods at product-specific level.

What we are working on

  • We actively participate in the drafting of standards developed under Standardisation Request M/543 developing methods to assess the repairability, durability, recyclability, of energy related products.
  • We convene the working group developing the method to assess the repairability (prEN45554).
  • We ensure that material efficiency aspects are introduced and systematically considered in standardisation requests and future product-specific standards.
