Evolving industry views and proposal on cascading regulations (formerly: double regulation)

In 2015, the European Commission paper on ‘Ecodesign for energy-related products integrated into other energy-related products’ was discussed during a Consultation Forum. It provides for an interpretation and could serve as basis for further discussion. Throughout the past two years, industry views and proposals have evolved. Recently, some associations have re-entered discussions on this subject and propose a distinction between ‘bespoke’ and ‘catalogue’ products. Eurovent members are asked to critically reflect on this subject and to share their views with the Secretariat.
