    1. Standardisation

    We are an Observer of the Committee on Standards

    ECOS works with the European institutions and the standardisation community in areas related to the EU regulatory approach to standardisation, the EU standardisation policy, as well as the integration of environmental aspects in standardisation. Among other, we contribute to the development of EC standardisation requests (mandates) in support of European environmental laws and policies. We also promote and defend the representation and effective participation of societal stakeholders in standardisation.

    2. Ecodesign
    In the area of Ecodesign, ECOS works to ensure an ambitious Ecodesign and Energy Labelling policy framework. We also work closely with the Commission DGs running the Ecodesign-product preparatory studies as well as with the European Council and the European Parliament on the development of Ecodesign and Energy Labelling product-specific implementing measures.
