Ecolabel, Ecodesign and legislation on energy efficiency
There is much talk at present, especially in the consumer electronics industry, about energy efficiency. It is therefore important for everyone, that is to say consumers, manufacturers, importers, distributors, retailers and industry operators in general, to know the essential points of this European legislation, in that it allows the consumers to choose less energy-intensive products and the suppliers − besides producing and selling products which are more eco-friendly, respectful of natural resources and leading to economic benefits − to meet the very strict Ecodesign and Ecolabel requirements set within the EU market and thoroughly sanctioned at national level. In this article ( published on the January 2014 number of the magazine Market Place ) the president of ANDEC Maurizio Iorio shall examine in a summary but exhaustive and detailed manner the European and national legislation in force.
