EUP instruction

Tags: EUP, EUROPEAN STANDARD

The EU Energy-Using Product Directive (EuP – 2005/32/EC) requires designers and manufacturers of energy-using products to apply eco-design principles to effectively reduce the environmental impact of their products from cradle-to-grave. The EuP Directive very broadly defines an energy-using product as:

“a product which is dependent on energy input (electricity, fossil fuels and renewable energy sources) to work as intended…”

Under EuP, designers are expected to consider and reduce the cradle-to-grave environmental impacts of their products’:

use of raw materials and natural resources

negative contributions towards climate change (for example: greenhouse gases - ghg)

energy consumption used during extraction of raw materials, transportation, production, sale, use (including stand-by) and disposal waste generation release of hazardous substances.
