The Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC has had the potential to become one of the most influential policy instruments in the fields of integrated product policy (IPP) and ustainable Consumption and Production. This report deals with the relevance of other environmental aspects in addition to the use phase energy consumption of products and is based on the product-specific EuP tudies of lots 15 to 18 (Solid fuel small combustion installations, Laundry Dryers, Vacuum Cleaners and Complex settop boxes). The project was initiated by the “Products and Environment group” (PMgroup) and later guided and supervised by the “Sustainable Consumption and Production group” (HKP group) of the Nordic Council of Ministers.

Former EuP Directive, MEEUP methodology and preparatory studies

As of November 20, 2009 the Ecodesign Directive EuP was replaced with the new energy-related products Directive (Ecodesign) 2009/125/EC. The older Ecodesign Directive for energy-using products only covered such energy- using products as microwaves, washing machines and televisions. The new Ecodesign-Directive covers products under the older EuP Directive as well as products that are energy-related and do not directly use energy, such as double-glazed windows, taps and showerheads. The Ecodesign Directive will be implemented within each EU member country beginning November 20, 2010.
