Horizontal matters

The European Commission has initiated a number of discussions and studies for the effectiveness and planning of the Ecodesign and Energy Labelling Directives.

The Ecodesign Working Plan is in the process of being approved. The Commission’s Circular Economy package was adopted in December 2015. Horizontal matters also include Market Surveillance and tolerances in the ecodesign and labelling regulations.

Consultation Forum on horizontal matters was held 29 April 2015.
