The European Business Association welcomes adoption of eco-design requirements for drum dryers
The EBA welcomes the adoption of Government Resolution No.534 dated June 19, 2019 that adopted the Technical Regulations on Eco-Design for Drum Dryers.
The EBA Consumer Electronics Committee supports the necessity for harmonization of technical regulation in Ukraine with the relevant regulations of the European Union, including in the field of eco-design. At the same time, after analysing the draft Technical Regulations, the EBA experts drew attention to the fact that the document does not specify which symbol should be used to refer to the “standard cotton program”.
In the EU, this issue was resolved by adopting a separate Commission Communication No.2014/C 121/03 on the publication of a unified transitional symbol for the implementation of the eco-design Regulation for drum dryers. Therefore, the EBA Committee has proposed to the State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine to harmonize the requirements of the Technical Regulations with the relevant EU practice and to use symbol for the “standard cotton program”.
We are grateful to the State Agency for taking into account proposals of the business society and hope for further constructive cooperation.
