GEN – 984.00. The INTAS project has started in March 2016. It should provide policy options that could support European Market Surveillance Authorities (MSAs) when checking compliance with Ecodesign requirements for large industrial products, specifically transformers and fans. The project is coming to an end with an event on 12 February.
Large fans subjected to market surveillance under this study
During the study, manufacturers of large fans have been confronted with detailed questions from at the least the Belgian Market Surveillance Authorities. It has been a surprise to the industry. The consequence was that the industry is now trying to structure the data that should be available in case future surveillance actions would take place. Such structuring would be appropriate for all products.
12 February 2019: Final INTAS event
This one-day event will aim to discuss the state of play and next steps for European market surveillance for Ecodesign, as well as share the methodology and policy recommendations for a better market surveillance of both power transformers and industrial fans– with a perspective to expand their scope to other large industrial products.
The event will take place in
L42, rue de la Loi 42, 1040 Brussels, Belgium – view map: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Rue+de+la+Loi+42,+1000+Bruxellesfirstname.lastname@example.org,4.3685505,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x47c3c49d2d565697:0x379bbe95a949502c!8m2!3d50.8452818!4d4.3707392?shorturl=1)
As the event will discuss possible expansion to other large industrial products, manufacturers should take note. It is not expected that the event will result in immediate actions by market surveillance authorities. Yet, with time, the methodology could find acceptance.
