Technical support for the revision of EU Ecolabel criteria for computers
The project's objective is to support JRC Seville in revising the existing EU GPP criteria. The priority in this revision process should be to first analyse which of the existing criteria and the supporting technical evidence are still valid and to identify the additional research that should be afterwards carried out. Potential additional criteria should be proposed and developed, if identified as necessary in the course of the contract.
The revision will as much as possible harmonise the criteria for the product group "Personal Computers & Notebook Computers with the other environmental tools being currently revised, i.e. ecodesign. The scope of work is spread across five main tasks:
1. Labels, standards and schemes criteria assessment
2. Market analysis.
3. Technical analysis.
4. Analysis of the application of GPP Criteria for Computers in Europe.
5. Ad-hoc support with responding to selected stakeholder comments.
