Complementary to standardisation requests under the Ecodesign Regulations

During the 5th meeting of the Standardisation Market Relevance Roundtable (SMARRT) it was indicated that the standardisation mandate M 129 from 1999 may need to be redrafted to be in line with the Construction Products Regulation 305/2011. Because there are harmonised standards under the Ecodesign Regulations, the need for a standardisation request for the same products under the Construction Products could be questioned. 

Draft open for consultation until 21 November, and at WTO level until 21 December

The draft of this regulation has just been published for the European “4-week feedback mechanism” and the global 60-day period for comments.

FRONT is a demonstration funded under LIFE, the EU’s financial instrument supporting environmental, nature conservation and climate action projects. It is often referred to as LIFE FRONT.

The first report has just been published.

It includes a hands-on table, which shows that required filtration efficiencies can be reached by using different filters or different combinations of filters.
