What is ErP Directive & Ecodesign?

The Ecodesign Directive (2009/125/EC) is the European Union’s ecological requirements for Energy-using Products (EuP) and Energy-related Products (ErP). .

The directive covers a host of products, from lightbulbs to insulation materials to data processing units. It can be challenging for businesses to know if the Ecodesign directive affects their products, or if their suppliers possess all the relevant information and data about the product life cycle with regard to the directive.
