The ClientEarth's briefing analyses two elements related to the expected revision of the Ecodesign and Energy Labelling Directives: 1. the idea of merging the two directives into one legislative act and 2. the legal form of secondary measures (implementing or delegated acts) in the two directives
In relation to the idea of merging the Energy Labelling and the Ecodesign Directives, the briefing focuses primarily on the possibilities of opting for a dual or a single legal basis and on the choice of legal bases. As to the legal form of secondary measures, ClientEarth advises to use the same legal form for secondary measures under both Directives (either delegated or as implementing acts). To ensure strong synergy between requirements of the two Directives, one secondary measure regulating both ecodesign and energy labelling aspects of a product should be adopted. This would automatically solve a problem of two different adoption procedures for the ELD and the ED secondary measures.
