EUREL eMeetup on the EU Sustainable Products Initiative
The European Commission published on 30 March 2022 its Sustainable Products Initiative (SPI). At its heart is the revision of the Directive 2009/125/EC establishing a framework for the setting of ecodesign requirements for energy-related products to become a Regulation of the Ecodesign on sustainable products: it entails sustainability requirements as one of the means to achieve the European Green Deal and respond to its Circular Economy Action Plan.
Standardization is one of the pillars that made the Ecodesign Directive a success over the years. In the new Regulation, the role played by Standards is formerly recognized and further extended, being prominent in the development of a Digital Product Pass (DPP) which the proposed Regulation makes mandatory for all products, devoting it an entire chapter.
During this EUREL eMeetup we will focus on the DPP, giving some insights on what is expected at standardization level, the state of play, the challenges and recommendations.
Programme of the eMeetup:
- Welcoming speech by Wolfgang Niedziella, CENELEC President
- Keynote presentation by Jens Gayko, DKE Deutsche Kommission Elektrotechnik Elektronik Informationstechnik
- Panel discussion with Carolynn Bernier (research engineer at LIST, specialised in microelectronics), Margaux Le Gallou (ECOS), Jens Gayko (DKE) and Constant Kohler (CEN-CENELEC.
