ABSTRACT
Energy using products (EuPs) are of great concern, because of their proliferation in every-day activity and environmental impact through their life cycle. The greatest share of environmental impact is related to energy use in the usage stage. The new legal requirements implemented in the EU are intended for tackling the environmental impact of EuPs applying the life cycle approach. The aim of this paper is to present the legal requirements for EuPs and eco-design measures the manufacturing companies have to undertake in order to gain competitive advantage while implementing them at the production stage.
