Joint industry position asking to start with pilot trials as soon as possible

On 22 December 2017, the European Commission released its ‘draft exchange model’ to test the future database EPREL. The white goods industry represented by the association CECED has been discussing this database in weekly meetings. This has led to a paper with comments to which Eurovent can subscribe.

The European Commission has noted that many products sold in Europe do not comply with European legislation. The proposal for a compliance and enforcement regulation would increase EU-level coordination of market surveillance, clarify the procedures for the mutual assistance mechanism, and require non-EU manufacturers to designate a natural or legal person responsible for compliance information in charge of cooperating with the EU market surveillance authorities.

Indicative targets for the "Energy 2018 Winter package"
