Draft Ecodesign Regulation for Motors
APPLiA, EHI and EPEE have carefully reviewed the draft Ecodesign Regulation for Motors that the
Ecodesign Regulatory Committee will discuss on 14 January 2019.
Our associations would like to emphasise two remaining concerns that have not been addressed and
that need to be taken into consideration in view of the setting of an optimal framework for ecodesign
requirements for motors:
‘Cascading’ is endangering freedom to innovate without any benefit for either consumers or the
environment – Alternatives to cascading exist;
Spare parts should be exempted from the requirements to guarantee longer product lifetimes
and prevent waste generation.
