About the Eco-Design Guides

The EcoDesign Requirements for Energy Using Products (EuP) Directive became law in EU Member States in August 2007. It provides a framework for setting EcoDesign requirements for any group of products which use energy, with the exception of vehicles for transport. These requirements will become mandatory under the CE marking regime. Failure to comply can result in products being banned from sale in EU Member States.
