The conference will bring together various stakeholders (European Commission, pump manufacturers, CEN Working Group Chairpersons) to discuss openly the implementation of the Ecodesign regulations for water pumps and circulators.
“Participants will discuss the implementation of Ecodesign Regulations for the pump industry in particular for water pumps and circulators” says Guy Van Doorslaer, Europump Secretary General. “Our event aims to help European pump manufacturers implement correctly the Ecodesign regulations for these products.”
The meeting will take place in Brussels, Belgium from 10:00 to 16:30. The morning session will focus on the general aspects of Ecodesign. Two breakout sessions will be organised in the afternoon on how to apply European Commission Regulation 641/2009/EC and the amendment 622/2012/EC with regard to Ecodesign requirements for circulators, and how to apply European Commission Regulation 547/2012/EC implementing Directive 2009/125/EC with regard to Ecodesign requirements for water pumps. These sessions will look in detail at what is in the Regulations and standards. Speakers will explain which guidelines are available from the European Commission and Europump and explore their content.
Participants will be asked to bring their questions to ensure that this event provides real added value for them.
