This draft implementing act regulation establishes a common methodology for the calculation of the weight of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) placed on the national market in each Member State and a common methodology for the calculation of the quantity WEEE.

This document describes best environmental practices which can be implemented on a voluntary basis by companies to minimise the environmental impact of electrical and electronic equipment* manufacturing.

This draft measure applies to all electronic displays (including “monitors”), which primary function is to display visual information. It also targets displays integrated into industrial machinery and other equipment.

Commission Regulation 2016/2282 amending a set of Ecodesign Regulations with regard to the use of tolerances in verification procedures published

The Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/2281 of 30 November 2016 implementing Directive 2009/125/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a framework for the setting of ecodesign requirements for energy-related products, with regard to ecodesign requirements for air heating products, cooling products, high temperature process chillers and fan coil units has been published on 20 December 2016 in the Official Journal.

In 2012 it was decided to outsource some of the activities. The Orgalime partnership received the order for collecting and assembling the overall European developments.

Eurovent input for the European Commission technical assistance study on ‘points system’ methodology

Since the advent of the 2012-2014 Ecodesign work plan, the analysis and investigations of complex energy-related products and systems for prospective Ecodesign and Energy Labelling implementing measures have significantly increased. These complex products and systems have degrees of heterogeneity that complicate their assessment against common metrics and measurement methods. The European Commission is working on a technical assistance study aiming to address the complex energy-relataed products within the Ecodesign Framework.

The European Commission has launched a new database on the EU's building stock to monitor the energy performance of buildings across Europe. This Observatory has been designed to speed-up the EU's clean energy transition and will be accompanied by the proposal for a revised Energy Performance of Buildings.

On 30 November 2016, the Commission adopted the this package that includes a set of proposals that will be discussed in the Council and European Parliament in the coming months. The Regulation on air heating products, cooling products, high temperature process chillers and fan coil (ENER lot 21) has been adopted and can be expected to be published soon.

Technical assistance study for the assessment of the feasibility of using a “points system" methodology in the implementation of Ecodesign Directive complex products and/ or product systems

This study is carried out for DG GROW and should be finished by February 2017. The outcome of the study may become a point systems methodology that could be applied to products (and systems) that can carry out different functions.

The European Commission services together with stakeholders have recently produced guidelines to assist in the smooth and level application of the Directive 2014/35/EU. The Directive became applicable on 20 April 2016. The guidelines explain in an easy and understandable way the elements of the Directive.
