EuP Ecological Product Design Management System



After the European Union and the Restriction of Hazardous Substance (RoHS) directive, a series of environmental regulations have been implemented to create a green trend.

Energy consumption reduction is a priority issue in the European Climate Change Programme (ECCP), and improvements in energy efficiency in the use of consumer appliances are seen as a sustainable contribution to achieving the EU's greenhouse gas targets.

On 11 August, 2005, the EU adopted the Energy Using Product Directive (EuP), hereinafter referred to as the EuP Directive.EU members should complete their national legislation by 11 August, 2007 to ensure the effective operation of the EuP Directive.


  • Product manufacturers must adopt a life-cycle mindset and integrate the requirements of eco-design into product design and development.
  • Manufacturers must comply with the product-specific implementation methods developed by the European Commission.
  • Those who can comply with the regulations can obtain the CE label and can freely travel in the EU market.
  • At present, EU has identified 20 categories of products that have a greater impact on the environment or are imported into the EU market in quantities of more than 200,000 units per year for the purpose of developing product control regulations.
