The objectives and operational principles of the ETV pilot programme are described in the Commission Staff Working Paper on 'The Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) initiative – Helping Eco-Innovations to reach the Market'.
The ETV initiative is part of the Eco-innovation Action Plan. The EcoAP website provides information on other EU actions to support eco-innovation, as well as news and good practices on eco-innovation in EU countries.
