Draft EU eco-design rules make public debut

The European Commission has belatedly published the full text of a draft framework directive promoting the environmentally friendly design of energy-using products (EUP). The proposal was formally adopted by the EU executive in early August (EED 07/08/03). The Commission's enterprise directorate has also published a web page setting out the basic principles of the directive and providing links to other pieces of legislation dealing with the environmental aspects of products. See press release, draft EUP directive and web page.
