  ErP Preparatory Study for High-Pressure Cleaners  

Project plan

The Preparatory Study develops the background data analysis to a stage where policy-makers are enabled to propose a mix of policy options and technical requirements for the product group in question. The data to be compiled must comprehensively summarise the environmental, market, socio-economic and technical information for the product group concerned. The Preparatory Study addresses the following tasks, in accordance with the Methodology for the Ecodesign of Energy-related Products (MEErP) developed by the European Commission:

  • Task 1 – Scope
  • Task 2 – Markets
  • Task 3 – Users
  • Task 4 – Technologies
  • Task 5 – Environment and Economics
  • Task 6 – Design options
  • Task 7 – Scenarios

Stakeholder involvement is a crucial part of this study, for data collection and joint analysis. Stakeholder contact is organised through a structured technical working group process. Two Stakeholder Group meetings are planned for 2018/2019 (details to be announced).


As the science and knowledge service of the European Commission, the Joint Research Centre's mission is to support EU policies with independent evidence throughout the whole policy cycle.
