Invitation to take part in revision of EU Ecolabel and GPP criteria

A study to inform the revision of EU Ecolabel and Green Public Procurement (GPP) criteria for the product groups ‘Personal Computers’ and ‘Notebook Computers’ has been launched by the Joint Research Centre's Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (JRC-IPTS). Relevant stakeholders are invited to take part in the revision process.

Potential participants must register their interest by Friday 1 February. Participants will be regularly informed about the progress of the study, will have access to preliminary results and draft documents and will be invited to respond to questionnaires and/or participate at stakeholder meetings.

The revision is to better take into account the life-cycle approach and scientific evidence base when assigning criteria. In making the revision, environmental, safety, technical and functional aspects will be considered. All background information, as well as announcements of ad-hoc working group meetings will shortly be available on the official project website.
