The European Commission has published a proposal for framework legislation aiming to improve the sustainability of products and support the circular economy.

The draft regulation would enable the minimum ecodesign and information requirements to be set for almost all physical products and would repeal  Directive 2009/125/EC on Ecodesign requirements for energy-related products.

Under the proposal, products included in supplementary legislation would have to meet certain sustainability criteria including:

  • product durability, reliability, reusability, upgradability, reparability, ease of maintenance and refurbishment;
  • restrictions on the presence of substances that inhibit the circularity of products and materials;
  • energy use or energy efficiency of products;
  • resource use or resource efficiency of products;
  • minimum recycled content in products;
  • ease of disassembly, remanufacturing and recycling of products and materials;
  • life-cycle environmental impact of products, including their carbon and environmental footprints;
  • preventing and reducing waste, including packaging waste.

Manufacturers of these products would have to conduct conformity assessment, produce technical documentation and draw up a declaration of conformity. They would also have to produce a digital product passport to communicate product information and label products with the CE Mark.

Producers should ensure that they have the required product data and management and reporting tools available to support compliance.

The regulation will now be considered by the European Parliament and the Council.
