Abstract: The European Commission launched in 2014 the revision of the ecodesign and energy-/resource label implementing measures for the product group 'household dishwashers (DW)'. The revision study follows the Commission’s Methodology for the Evaluation of Energy related Products (MEErP) consisting of: Scope definition, standard methods and legislation, Market analysis, Analysis of user behaviour and system aspects, Analysis of technologies, Environmental and economics, Design options and Policy analysis and scenarios The comprehensive analysis of the product group following the steps above will feed as research evidence basis into the revision of the existing Energy Label Regulation (EC) 1059/2010 (European Commission 2010a) and the Ecodesign Regulation (EC) 1016/2010 on household dishwashers (European Commission 2010b). The research is based on available scientific information and data, uses a life-cycle thinking approach, and has engaged stakeholder experts in order to discuss key issues, and to the extent possible reach consensus on the proposals. This updated preparatory study includes a comprehensive techno-eco¬nomic and environmental assessment for this product group. This document provides policy makers with the evidence basis for assessing whether and how to revise the existing Regulations.
