Following the finalization of the EC preparatory study, CECIMO now focuses on the definition and the industrial validation of the environmental evaluation criteria for machine tools. CECIMO aims at ensuring that such criteria are defined by standardization. Therefore, we support the ISO TC 39 WG12, elaborating the standards ISO DIS 14955-1 - Machine tools -Environmental evaluation of machine tools.
The self-regulation concept aims at respecting the potential of individual energy efficiency measures and to the freedom of innovation.
Currently, SRI is defined by staged objectives. CECIMO is determined to address the current challenges and develop a consistent and effective concept of self-regulation.
CECIMO’s expert groups are elaborating on the SRI concept whilst negotiations between CECIMO and the European Commission for the accomplishment of a voluntary agreement are ongoing.
