Coordination of EU market surveillance
Energy Efficiency Compliant Products
(EEPLIANT)

EEPLIANT

EEPLIANT is project funded by the European Commission’s Horizon2020 programme. We wrote the proposal, which received grant funding of €2.4million, and we are the lead coordinator for the project that began in March 2015 and will run until June 2017.
The key objective of EEPLIANT is to help deliver the intended economic and environment benefits of the Energy Labelling and Ecodesign Directives by increasing the rates of compliance with them. This will be achieved through coordinating the monitoring, verification and enforcement activities of 13 Market Surveillance Authorities (MSAs) across the EU Single Market.

We designed the project to be a highly visible demonstration to all stakeholders that the marketplace is being policed – something that both the supply-side and consumers have campaigned for. It is creating capacity in MSAs where, in some cases, none existed before and it is very much improving the harmonisation of enforcement actions between MSAs in different Member States.
