Methods and standards for assessing the repairability of electrical and electronic devices

Strengthening material efficiency under the Ecodesign Directive


The repair of for energy-related products is linked to several ecological, social and economic benefits. However, defective products are hardly ever repaired in practice. The project aims to make the repairability of energy-related products assessable in order to better inform consumers about the repairability of products at the time of purchase. In practical trials on various tumble dryers and printers, the applicability of a scoring system for repairability has been tested. Recommendations for the implementation of such a system and the overall strengthening of repairability have been derived from these trials.
