Vde Ecodesign Rome 2009

  1. 1. Energy using Products (EuP): Requirements for Ecodesign Rome, December 3rd, 2009 Frank Rheiner VDE Testing and Certification Institute
  2. 2. Ecodesign Directive The Directive 2009/125/EC (former 2005/32/EC) of the European Parliament and of the Council establishes a framework for the setting of ecodesign requirements for energy-related products. Goal: To contribute to sustainable development by increasing energy efficiency and the level of protection of the environment, while at the same time increasing the security of the energy supply. energy efficiency / Legislation environmental Manufacturer protection Consumers
