Eurovent supports the Ecodesign Regulation for Sustainable Products proposal. Product sustainability must be addressed in harmonised way across the EU to ensure the free movement of products within the Single Market.

  1. Avoid overlaps and double regulation.
  2. Specify requirements product group by product group.
  3. Allow sufficient lead times and predictability before requirements come into force.
  4. Ensure proper stakeholder consultation and evidence-based decision-making.

  6. Avoid third-party conformity assessment if not strictly justified.
  7. Implement the Digital Product Passport respecting proportionality.
