This article states that the EuP, a framework directive on eco-design of energy-using products was published in the European Commission's Official Journal in July 2005, came into force in August 2005, and member states have until August 11, 2007, to implement it into national law. EuP and its eco-design requirements expects manufacturers to consider the entire lifecycle of product groups and to assess the ecological profile of the equipment by requiring manufacturers at each stage to evaluate consumption of materials and energy.
