Specific website for the Ecodesign Directive
The European Lift Association (ELA) launched a new website where you can find all of the background and current information of the Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC.
Lifts have been included in the Working Plan 2016-2019 (also referred to as WP3) of the Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC. The preparatory study was launched in 2017 and is expected to end in summer 2019. According to ELA’s latest newsletter, a specific internet home page has been set up for this preparatory study: www.eco-lifts.eu.
The next meeting between stakeholders, the WP3 Consultants and the European Commission will take place in Brussels on September 17th. ELA representatives will attend this meeting.
