EU Council Approves Ecodesign Regulation

The Council of the European Union (EU) has given its final approval to a new regulation addressing ecodesign requirements for sustainable products.

The regulation, known as the Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation (ESPR), was originally proposed in March 2022 to replace the EU’s Ecodesign Directive (2009/125/EC). The ESPR includes more in-depth ecodesign requirements, including new rules on product durability, reusability, upgradability, and repairability, and will be more broadly applicable to a significantly larger number of product groups.

The overall goal of the ESPR is to reduce the EU’s dependence on energy from countries outside of the EU, including Russia.

Following the Council’s action, the ESPR is expected to be published in the Official Journal of the European Union within the next few weeks and will enter into force 20 days following its publication. The specific requirements will be applied from 24 months after the regulation enters into force.
