Time to have your say on eco-design requirements and labelling of electronic displays, the WEEE Directive and end-of-life vehicles
Three European Commission calls for input on legislative initiatives!
The European Commission would like to hear your views on its review of the ecodesign and energy labelling requirements for electronic displays, in order to assess how successful the regulations have been in achieving or progressing towards their objectives (reducing consumers' energy bills, improving the EU’s security of supply and helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions).
Your input, to be provided by 21 September 2023, will be taken into account as the initiative is developed and fine-tuned.
The Commission has recently opened a public consultation to gather evidence and feedback from a wide range of stakeholders who have had a role in implementing the WEEE (Waste from electrical and electronic equipment) Directive and/or are otherwise engaged in its targets and objectives, including individuals.
The aim of this consultation is to understand to what extent the directive supports a circular economy and environmentally sound management of WEEE.
You can provide your feedback until 22 September 2023. Previous feedback and history of the initiative can be consulted here.
Lastly, the Commission would like to hear your views on a proposal for a regulation on circularity requirements for vehicle design and on the management of end-of-life vehicles, amending and repealing some past legislation.
This initiative proposes improved collection, treatment and recycling of end-of-life vehicles (ELVs). It aims to ensure consistency with the European Green Deal objectives by encouraging the car industry to adopt a sustainable model for the design and production of cars by eliminating hazardous substances in cars and requiring that most ELV parts and materials are reused or recycled.
You can contribute to the debate until 20 October 2023 (scroll down the page to the open feedback period).
