Future of the Ecodesign Directive and the Sustainable Product Initiative
June 4 @ 10:00 - 11:30
The debate organized by LightingEurope is aimed at discussing with representatives of the European Commission, the European Parliament, National authorities and representatives of industry and civil society the future of the Directive 2009/125/EC on Ecodesign requirements for energy-related products in the framework of the upcoming legislative proposal on the Sustainable Products Initiative.
Panelists will be invited to share their point of view on
- the impact of this new legislative framework on the existing ERP product-specific legislation and on the non-ERP current regulatory setting
- how to structure the process in a way that ensures a wide stakeholder involvement from the onset
- the setting up of the Digital Product Passport: how to consider the specificities of the ERP and non-ERP products and their current obligations as well as lessons learnt from other existing databases such as EPREL and SCIP.
Please mark the day in your agendas, more information is coming soon.
