Planning & Meetings

Ecodesign preparatory studies are a very transparent process, including stakeholder consultations.


A kick-off meeting took place on April 8, 2020, with the European Commission to determine details of the study.

A first stakeholder meeting will take place as an online meeting on July 13, 2020. The interim task 1 - 2 reports and a discussion paper on tasks 3 and 4 are publicly available and will be discussed at the first stakeholder meeting. Comments from stakeholders will be taken into account in the draft final report.

In late summer further draft task reports will be published to seek feedback from stakeholders.

A second stakeholder meeting will take place in Brussels, indicatively in December 2020. The draft final report of all individual tasks will represent the discussion document and will be publicly available at latest 3 weeks before the second stakeholder meeting. Comments from stakeholders will be taken into account in the final report.
