Water & energy efficiency regulatory measures must consider the consumers expectations
A collective gathering of key Industry experts, NGO’s, national authorities from UK, Portugal, Denmark, representatives of the European Commission together with the European Bathroom Forum met on the 26 April 2018. They investigated if a suitable testing method exists in the market place, that provides credible and acceptable function test methodology for taps and showers.
Today, no suitable testing method exists in the market place that cover the wide range of requirements for functionality and performance criteria. It was also recognised that efficiency measures must consider the consumers expectations for a good experience using their water using bathroom products.
Representatives from EBF, Swedish Energy and Swiss Energy agreed to collectively work together to identify the parameters of an acceptable test using existing European Standards as the base.
