1.1 Background to this consultation
A proposal for a Regulation on Ecodesign for Sustainable Products (ESPR) was adopted by the Commission in March 2022. The ESPR is a framework for setting ecodesign requirements on products to improve their circularity, energy performance and other environmental sustainability aspects. While the ESPR proposal provides a general framework for setting rules, the actual product requirements will be adopted only in a second stage. The Commission should therefore adopt and regularly update a working plan, setting out product priorities for which ecodesign requirements should be laid down.
The purpose of this questionnaire is to gather your views on what the new product priorities under the ESPR should be.
