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 took place as an online meeting on July 13, 2020. Documentation of this meeting is provided below. The interim task 1 - 2 reports and a discussion paper on tasks 3 and 4 are publicly available and were 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 or online, 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.
