In a bounded domain O ⊂ ℝd with C1,1 boundary a matrix elliptic second-order operator AD,ɛ with Dirichlet boundary condition is studied. The coefficients of this operator are periodic and depend on x/ɛ, where ɛ s 0 is a small parameter. The sharp-order error estimate
$$ \left\| {A_{D,\varepsilon }^{ - 1} - \left( {A_D^0 } \right)^{ - 1} } \right\|\left. {L_2 \to L_2 \leqslant C\varepsilon } \right| $$
is obtained. Here AD0 is an effective operator with constant coefficients and Dirichlet boundary condition.
