EU states making headway on ecodesign compliance

The first phase of a project to improve cross-border enforcement of EU ecodesign rules is almost complete. Draft findings will come out before Christmas

The Ecopliant project, which involves ten countries, is halfway through its three-year lifespan and will publish draft findings on best practice in market surveillance and enforcement before Christmas.
