In the view of the decisive trilogue meeting on the Commission proposal for a new Energy Labelling Framework Regulation to be held on 21 March 2017, the undersigning organisations recall the joint priorities of the affected industry in the interest of preserving the success, credibility and ove'all workability of this crucial EU policy instrument.

Establishing a common methodology for the calculation of the weight of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) placed on the national market in each Member State and a common methodology for the calculation of the quantity of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) generated by weight in each Member State.

Building on several years of history and innovation, Asociación Nacional Fabricantes e Importadores Electrodomésticos - ANFEL and Asociación Española Fabricantes Pequeños Electrodomésticos - FAPE joined forces to establish the newborn APPLiA España.

APPLiA is happy to welcome its new and 22nd direct member, iRobot Corporation.

APPLiA has decided to withdraw its legal challenge filed before the EU General Court in March 2020 after the European Commission has made significant amendments to the Energy Labelling Regulations published on December 5, 2019. 

After the European Parliament's on the ENVI Committee’s report on the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism. APPLiA reiterates its desire to see two things: a thriving manufacturing industry in Europe, and the avoidance of carbon leakage.

The EU Commission has recently adopted three guidance documents that aim to help European citizens, businesses, but also national administrations to fully harness the Single Market for goods. Nevertheless, several initiatives that are currently developing in France are going in the opposite direction.

APPLiA fully supports the ambition of the new EU Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability within the EU Green Deal framework. Harmonising, simplifying and strengthening EU rules on chemicals will help build a coherent system to risk-manage chemicals in the Union and clarify some existing legislative gaps.
