GEN – 1102.00. The Commission has published 4-page roadmaps for the public at large and the stakeholders to provide input. This input will be taken into account for development and fine tuning of the revised Ecodesign Ventilation Units and Energy Labelling Ventilation Units Regulations.
Roadmap/Inception Impact Assessment
These 4-page documents are identical for the Ecodesign Ventilation Units and Energy Labelling Ventilation Units Regulations (GEN – 1102.01). It outlines the general concept. Input would have to be provided separately through the respective links.
Note: for the Residential Ventilation Unit reference is made to the group E01329. This Advisory Group on Construction Products focusses on dangerous substances and fire related issues.
Process and timing
The adoption of both revised Regulations is planned for the first quarter of 2021. The Commission would wish to keep to the timing, host a Stakeholder Meeting (on 22 April as a Webex, possibly 6 or 7 May as a face to face meeting) so that a Consultation Forum could take place in July.
The current COVID-19 outbreak may have an impact. If the Consultation Forum is delayed the adoption in early 2021 would not take place. In that case the Commission might no longer be able to rely on the consultant for support.
Follow-up by the Product Groups
The Product Groups ‘Air Handling Units’, ‘Residential Air Handling Units’, ‘Energy Recovery Components’ and ‘Air Filters’ have accompanied and still accompany the review study from the start and provided a common position to the consultants on 20 December 2019. A meeting with the Commission and consultant took place on 5 March and the exchanges are continuing.
The Members and Product Groups are encouraged to discuss and prepare the feedback they wish to provide by 29 April.
This feedback is separate from the ongoing exchange with the Commission and consultant but can be used to stress specific points.
