Commission Declaration

‘The Commission declares that adoption of the proposed extension of the Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a framework for the setting of eco-design requirements for energy-related products will not affect the implementation of the work programme currently established.

Moreover, the Commission will take due account of the experience gained under the Directive when establishing the work programme and proposing new implementing measures under the recast Directive. In line with Article 15(2)(c) of the Directive and the principles of better regulation, the Commission will in particular strive to ensure that overall consistency in the EU legislation on products is maintained.

In addition, the Commission will, when assessing the appropriateness of extending the scope of the Directive to non energy related products according to Article 21, consider the need for adapting the methodology for identifying and addressing significant environmental parameters for such products.’
