Abstract
This paper presents a project that will provide the foundation on which the Basque industry will be enabled to
achieve EuP compliance in the most effective way providing guidance to companies for preparing timely for upcoming
energy efficiency and eco-design requirements. At the same time, a pro-active methodology will be developed
considering the supply chain management implications, adopting the best-available-technologies and
strategies to communicate eco-design efforts to consumers. Starting from an analysis of the relevancy of the EuP
for the Basque Country by the identification of the relevant product groups regarding the 20 categories currently
under consideration for EU regulations, a discussion with manufacturers will be reached on the possible consequences
of the EuP in their business. An exemplary strategy for EuP is going to be outlined including an analysis
of the technical requirements, related management and organisational issues and their implications. This is a reference
work for regional policy makers and European SMEs that have to comply with a Framework Directive in
the midterm, and more specifically, an establishment of the procedural conditions of the EuP implementation.
