Final report of "Omnibus" study released

The final report of the so called "omnibus" review study on various household and  lighting products that are already regulated under the Ecodesign and Energy Labelling Directives has been released last week.

This study will serve as a basis for the  Commission to prioritise the upcoming potential reviews of these products, as well as the nature of the following review activites for each product group: fast track approach or an extensive study.  

A proposal by the Commission on the way forward, concerning the potential review and revision of these products is expected to be discussed with the consultation forum, tentatively at the beginning of May.
