The European Commission has started the evaluation of the effectiveness of the Energy Labelling Directive and specific aspects of the Ecodesign Directive, for which a study was commissioned to external consultants. The purpose of the evaluation is to provide the Commission with background information and analysis. The evaluation will also prepare an impact assessment for the Consultation Forum, and includes the possible drafting of a legislative proposal.
The first stakeholder meeting will take place on 27 June in Brussels (see Events). There is an agenda on the project website, which has been launched recently. Registration for the meeting and as a stakeholder can also be done on the website.
