New Proposals for Ecodesign and Energy Labelling Requirements for Electronic Displays

Added 28th June 2017


Read More

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) requested stakeholder comments to two documents from the Commission, which can be viewed here and here. These outline possible proposals for the revision of the Ecodesign and Energy Labelling requirements for electronic display. 

The proposals include an extension of the scope to “electronic displays”, which would include computer monitors and televisions, and to update requirements in line with new technological features. Ecodesign requirements are also proposed to be more aligned with the Circular Economy Package and WEEE Directive and include requirements related to end-of-life treatment. The proposals were discussed at the Consultation Forum on 6 July 2017 in Brussels.
