Public consultation open to 16/12/2022 asks whether to develop Ecodesign for PV panels. Safety is not mentioned. The previous ‘roadmap’ (inception impact assessment) mentioned health and safety, but these are not raised in the public questionnaire which addresses energy efficiency and labelling, durability, repairability, recycling and carbon footprint. In addition to the questionnaire, stakeholders, companies and individuals can submit position papers or other documents.
