PROSAFE is launching a Call for Tender for the EU-funded Energy Efficiency Compliant Products 2018 (EEPLIANT3) Concerted Action concerning specific product groups covered under Work Package 12 – Local Space Heaters. Further details about the contractual and procedural elements of the call are included in the Official Call.
EEPLIANT3 (Energy Efficiency Compliant Products 2018) is the largest pan-EU Concerted Action on market surveillance to date aiming to achieve impacts in line with the objectives of the Horizon 2020 - Work Programme 2018-2020 Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy. The project is funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 framework with duration from June 2019 until November 2023.
An important part of the EEPLIANT3 concerted action is the testing of products for compliance with the relevant energy labelling and ecodesign regulations.
