Consultation outcome

Received contributions will be published on the Internet. See the privacy statement attached to this consultation for information on how your personal data and contribution will be dealt with.

The results of the public consultation will be taken into consideration for the preparation of Commission implementing regulations related to the cited products. These are prepared in line with Article 11 of the Energy Labelling Regulation and the Ecodesign Working Plan 2016-2019

Target group

All citizens and organisations with views on the ecodesign and energy labelling schemes, including local authorities, local interest groups, SMEs, consumer and environmental organisations, trade unions, NGOs, consultancies, workers and employers' federations, other relevant stakeholders and citizens.

Objective of the consultation

Given that most European citizens are likely to buy dishwashers, refrigerators, washing machines and washer-dryers, computers, televisions and lighting products at some point in their life, the aim of the public consultation is to gather their views and opinions by means of a questionnaire in a transparent way. There are however specific technical questions on each product group.

The consultation is also another important opportunity to gather further views and opinions from Member States, other public authorities, industry groups and NGOs, and other interested organisations.

This public consultation will ultimately inform the evaluation and impact assessment prepared by the Commission in the preparation of regulations specific to each product group.

How to submit your response

We welcome contributions through the online questionnaire (EUSurvey).

Received contributions will be published on the Internet. See the privacy statement attached to this consultation for information on how your personal data and contribution will be dealt with.

The questionnaire is available in all EU official languages but Gaelic. Replies are welcome in any official language of the European Union. Given possible delays in translating comments submitted in some languages, contributions in English are welcome, as they will help the Commission to process the survey more swiftly.

Additional information

Organisations, networks, platforms or self-employed individuals engaged in activities aiming at influencing the EU decision-making process are asked to provide the Commission and the public at large with information about which interests they represent and how inclusive their representation is, by subscribing to the Transparency Register. Contributions from organisations and businesses who choose not to register will be processed as a separate category "non-registered organisations/businesses" unless they are recognised as representative stakeholders under relevant Treaty provisions.
When the Commission publishes a public consultation on the Europa 'Consultation Portal' or a roadmap or inception impact assessment on the dedicated webpage, this triggers an e-mail alert to registered organisations.
More info can be found on the Commission webpage on the Transparency Register.
