8 11, the EU EUP directive came into effect. EuP Directive is the EU WEEE and RoHS two green following the instruction, but also an energy-intensive products on the EU environmental directives of the design proposal. Although it is only a framework directive, but its maneuverability more, covering a very wide range of products for the Chinese enterprises, the directive is undoubtedly a more subtle and technical barriers to trade. Menacing face of yet another “green” test, export enterprises in China-related study should be timely and effective response measures should not be underestimated. Should EUP directive: Network access from the “head” to start
In the EU WEEE and RoHS directives are still so many headaches when Chinese companies, a more rigorous and involves a broader directive??? “Energy-using Products Directive” (EUP Directive) has placed the China’s export enterprises before. “The EU EuP Directive enters into force, the future of related industries in China than the impact of directives WEEE and RoHS is more serious.” China Machinery and Electronic Products Import and Export Chamber of Commerce official says, EuP directive covers all electrical products, and involves From the design, manufacture to use, maintenance, recovery and post-processing of a whole industrial chain.
KEMA Certification Center engineers Zhao Gang said in an interview, EuP Directive to achieve a fundamental requirement to improve resource use efficiency, which took place from the end of the concept of product design changes; for related businesses, will have to source from the design of the Product design is updated, fully consider the entire product life cycle of energy, natural resources, environmental impact, the pursuit of future products to be more low resource consumption, low energy consumption targets.
According to report, because the directive throughout the product life cycle, and the introduction of the directive does not provide technical details in the implementation of great operational flexibility, the EUP directive will affect all the world’s large-scale electronics Most small manufacturers and manufacturers. On many Chinese enterprises, the directive is undoubtedly a more subtle technical barriers to trade.
More extensive coverage in fact, on the development of eco-design requirements of EuP product has been brewing for years within the EU. In recent years, the environmental impact of electrical products becomes more important, countries have to develop products to improve the environmental performance objectives and standards, this trend is the EU’s current design standard electrical environment, the basis for instruction. As early as 2001, the EU announced the environmental impact of electrical and electronic equipment directive (EEE) and end-use equipment minimum energy efficiency requirements Framework Directive (EER) of two draft documents. One, EEE Directive by the European Commission Enterprise Board, EER instruction proposed by the Transport and the Environment Agency, has proposed a draft directive scope of the two departments are different, these two instructions are for the same products, the content can not help but there is duplication and overlap, do not meet the comprehensive environmental policy in Europe (IPP). EuP Directive to EEE and EER instruction based instruction, two instructions into one, changing the EU environmental policy, a single and isolated from the original objectives of management practices to comprehensive product life cycle to reduce the negative environmental impact of all stages . August 1, 2003, the European Commission to the European Parliament and European Council Directive proposal submitted Eup, after discussion by the repeated, until in July 2005 formally adopted the directive proposal, and called on Member States on August 11, 2007 days before the directive into national laws and regulations into the implementation stage.
Although the EuP Directive is
a framework directive, but its maneuverability more, covering a very wide range of products. The provisions under the EU EuP Directive shown, EuP products to market in principle, including all energy-consuming products, generation, conversion and measurement of these energy products (excluding transport equipment), and energy products used for loading and market, direct sales as separate components to end-users. Including, of course WEEE directive listed 10 categories of products. Consumption of energy products including electricity, solid fuels, liquid fuels and gas fuels. When orders come into force, the European Commission will be heating and hot water equipment, electric motor systems, home lighting equipment and services, household appliances, home office equipment and services, ventilation and air conditioning, etc. to make the implementation of environmental design Methods.
