Adaptation to scientific and technical progress of Annex II to Directive 2000/53/EC (ELV)

New ELV projects for the evaluation of renewal of exemptions, to be revised or deleted from Annexes II of Directive 2000/53/EC (ELV), and for the evaluation of other topics run within a framework contract lead by Oeko-Institut e.V.

This dedicated website ensures that stakeholders will have easy and up-to-date project information and can contribute to online consultations. Please find in the left menu the detailed Project Descriptions, the Commission's Technical Specifications, a link to the relevant legislation, a choice of useful Guidance Documents and the Previous Reports of Oeko-Institut in chronological order.


A single study is currently being performed, i.e., one “pack” of exemptions is currently under review: 

  • For Pack 3, assignment of project tasks started on 18 April 2018 and shall run over a period of ten months, thus ending 17 February 2019. Pack 3 covers the review of five exemptions concerning a possible renewal (8(e), 8(f), 8(g), 8(j) and 14). The stakeholder consultation shall run for four weeks between 29 May 2018 and 26 June 2018. If relevant, a stakeholder meeting may be held in relation to the exemptions to be reviewed in this project and shall be announced accordingly. For details, please study Project Description - Pack 3 and Technical Specifications - Pack 3.
