Eighteen months after the launch of the EEPLIANT3 Concerted Action and while still navigating through the COVID-19 health crisis, it is time for an update on the progress of the project activities. This interim edition of our Newsletter provides a snapshot of the key facts and the preliminary findings across all Work Packages to date. Under this Action, 29 partners from 20 EU Member States and Turkey verify whether products sold in the European Single Market follow the requirements laid out in the ecodesign and energy labelling regulations.
Six product sectors are targeted: air conditioners and comfort fans, household tumble driers, water heaters and hot water storage tanks, ventilation units, lighting products, and local space heaters — the last two activities kick start in 2021. EEPLIANT3 stands out not only for promoting shared EU-wide inspection procedures and joint sampling and testing programmes, but also for addressing market surveillance challenges hand-to-hand with the key stakeholders of each sector, including the Ecodesign and Energy Labelling AdCos.
