Energy efficient products and market surveillance: strengthening the internal market, achieving EU’s energy efficiency goals

Over the last few years, Market Surveillance Authorities (MSAs) and civil society across Europe have increasingly joined efforts to generate energy savings by preventing losses resulting from non-compliant products. Their work raises confidence among purchasers, manufacturers, and retailers, whilst improving the enforcement and impact of EU energy efficiency legislation. Throughout the seminar, lead experts from MSAs, the European Commission, the European Parliament, and from civil society will share best practices and discuss policy challenges based on the work undertaken in several EU-funded projects. They will address the new legislative proposals related to energy efficiency and ecodesign, and take stock of the current state of the market.

Furthermore, the speakers will describe the actions that have been taken to mobilise and to build market surveillance capacity in the Member States which is delivering a more compliant and energy efficient European Union market.
