Eco-design (Directive 2009/125/EC establishing a framework for the setting of ecodesign requirements for energy-related products (recast))

Legislative
Eu Directive
Mitigation Framework
Passed in 2005
The directive aims to establish a coherent framework for eco-design requirements applied to energy-using products. Through implementing measures and voluntary agreements, mandatory minimum requirements are set for products taking account of life-cycle costs. The extension expanded the directive's scope to encompass all energy related products. Member States must adopt national legislation to implement the directive, create authorities for market surveillance and adopt penalties for infringements. Member states are prohibited from adopting measures that compromise the placing on the market/ putting into service any product that has complied with EC requirements on eco-design.

On January 1st, 2020, a new set of ecodesign rules entered into force.
