An impact assessment was made by the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) for the Ecodesign for Energy-Using Products Regulations 2007, which transpose the framework Directive on Energy-using Products (EuP) in the UK. The Commission has yet to table a draft implementing measure and impact assessment for boilers and water heaters, although they have issued a first draft of a working document for discussion. As the initial implementing measures, including that on boilers and water heaters, under the EuP Directive are focused on energy efficiency, it will be for DEFRA to produce any impact assessment as necessary.
