Right to Repair Directive (PROPOSAL)
Year: 2023
Language: English
Making repairs easy

Over the last decades, in the EU replacement has often been prioritised over repair whenever products become defective and insufficient incentives have been given to consumers to repair their goods when the legal guarantee expires. The Right to Repair Directive proposal, published in 2023, will make it easier and more cost-effective for consumers to repair as opposed to replace goods. Additionally, more demand will translate into a boost to the repair sector while incentivising producers and sellers to develop more sustainable business models. This proposal is currently being analysed and debated by the European Parliament and the European Council.
