Welcome / final words

Welcome to the website of the study for the Amended Ecodesign Working Plan.

This study provides the European Commission and the stakeholders of the Consulation Forum with background information and analysis in order to establish the (second) Working Plan. The Working Plan sets out an indicative list of product groups which are considered priorities for the adoption of implementing measures under the Ecodesign Directive.

The study started mid November 2010 and was finalised in December 2011 and was carried out for the European Commission (DG Enterprise and Industry) by VHK, The Netherlands (*).

The Final Reports are available on the 'Documents' section of this webiste.

This project website will remain online ('passively') for approximately another three years (end 2014). Updating, active registration and feedback of the study website are however disabled and/or removed.
