FEM against Ecodesign requirements for displays integrated in machinery

FEM participated in the public consultation on the draft Ecodesign measure on electronic displays

As part of the better regulation agenda, the EU launches public consultation on draft legislation, such as the draft Ecodesign implementing measure on electronic displays.

In a nutshell, FEM requests the full exclusion of all displays integrated and to be integrated into equipment and industrial machines. FEM highlights the necessary exclusion of displays to be integrated into other equipment to avoid market distortions, between machines assembled in EU and imported machines already including displays.

As far as resource efficiency requirements are concerned, FEM raises concerns on uncertainties regarding responsibilities to implement requirements for integrated displays and the too prescriptive approach to assemble displays components.

Finally, FEM also raises concerns on the lack of impact assessment for the whole range of affected equipment and the inappropriate consultation of stakeholders, although they are requested by the framework Ecodesign Directive.
