EU member states miss eco-design law deadline

All but six member states missed the 11 August deadline to transpose into national law a 2005 directive on the eco-design of energy-using products (EuP), ENDS has learned.

So far only Austria, Belgium, Ireland, UK, Slovakia and Sweden have reported full or partial transposition of the law to the European commission. An official said their reports will be analysed this autumn. It has not yet been decided whether the commission will launch infringement proceedings against tardy member states.
