As part of the ongoing revision of the Ecodesign regulation on fans (327/2011/EU), JBCE together with DIGITALEUROPE, EPEE, CECED, and EHI have issued a joint position papers on 16th March 2015, calling for the exemption of spare parts, which should be according to the “repair as produce principle” (as applied in the RoHS and ELV Directives) and for the removal of ecodesign requirements for fans incorporated into products and the information requirement for these fans. The papers also argue that Centrifugal Forward Curved(FC) fans should not be merged with Centrifugal Backward Curved (BC) fans.
