Destruction ban for electrical appliances

For the development of sustainability criteria, the parliamentary resolution contains a list of products to be given priority. These include iron, steel, aluminium, textiles, furniture and mattresses, tyres, detergents, paints, lubricants, chemicals, information and telecommunications equipment and other electronics items.

trade-e-bility recently informed about the Ecodesign Regulation and the Digital Product Passport.

As EUWID reports, the European Parliament adopted its negotiating position on the planned EU Ecodesign Regulation on 12 July 2023. MEPs voted by a large majority to extend the planned ban on the destruction of unsold products to footwear and electrical and electronic equipment. Parliament largely followed the recommendations of the Environment Committee.

“While the original Commission proposal provided for an authorisation to issue such a destruction ban only after further data collection and evaluation, the Member States in the Council were in favour of directly introducing a ban on the destruction of “unsold clothing” three years after entry into force of the Ecodesign Regulation. Other products should follow later, with electronic products being prioritised in the impact assessment for a ban,” EUWID adds.

There was also discussion on the extent to which and when the bans should be extended to include small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

For the development of sustainability criteria, the parliamentary resolution also contains a list of products to be assigned priority. These include iron, steel, aluminium, textiles, furniture and mattresses, tyres, detergents, paints, lubricants, chemicals, information and telecommunications equipment and other electronics items
