European Commission Seeks Public Input on Eco-Design Requirements, WEEE Directive, and End-of-Life Vehicles
Brussels, August 28, 2023 - The European Commission has initiated a call for public input on three significant sustainability matters. The first pertains to the assessment of ecodesign and energy labeling requirements for electronic displays. The Commission is seeking feedback on the effectiveness of these regulations in achieving objectives such as energy savings, supply security enhancement, and reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. Interested parties are invited to submit their views by September 21, 2023.
Concurrently, the Commission has launched a public consultation concerning the Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive. This review aims to evaluate the directive's role in promoting a circular economy and environmentally responsible management of electronic waste. The Commission is welcoming feedback from stakeholders, including individuals, until September 22, 2023. Prior feedback and historical context of the directive are also available for consultation.
Lastly, the Commission is soliciting opinions on a proposal for a regulation addressing circularity requirements in vehicle design and the management of end-of-life vehicles (ELVs). The proposed regulation seeks to enhance the collection, treatment, and recycling of ELVs, aligning with the goals of the European Green Deal. The public is encouraged to contribute to this discussion until October 20, 2023.
These calls for public input reflect the European Commission's commitment to inclusive policymaking in areas crucial to sustainability, including electronics, waste management, and vehicle production. Interested parties are encouraged to participate via the official European Commission website.MORE INFO ON: circulareconomy.europa.eu
