The name EEPLIANT is derived from the formal title of the grant application proposal made to the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises: Energy Efficiency ComPLIANT Products 2014 .
The name was chosen to show continuity from a predecessor project ECOPLIANT: European ECOdesign comPLIANce projecT, which finished in early 2015.
The key objective of EEPLIANT is to help deliver the intended economic and environment benefits of the Energy Labelling and Ecodesign Directives by increasing the rates of compliance with them. This will be achieved through coordinating the monitoring, verification and enforcement activities of 13 Market Surveillance Authorities across the EU Single Market. Read about other objectives here.
