Environment: Orgalim Position Paper on the “right to repair”

Published: 5 April 2022

Policies & Issues: Environment

Representing Europe’s technology industries providing innovative solutions that can unlock a greener and more prosperous future for the European Union and its citizens, Orgalim supports the principle of the new “right to repair” initiative. This initiative, which was announced in the new Circular Economy Action Plan, encourages consumers to use products for a longer time and to promote repair to keep repairable products in the economy for as long as possible, while making sure that, once repaired, these products are fit for future use in order to avoid undue extra costs and waste of resources.  We also support the use of voluntary measures to achieve such goals and ambitions.

To read our recommendations and key principles to be respected when developing new requirements to improve the repairability of products, please download the document above.
