Union demands QR codes for consumer information on packaging

At the European level, the Federal Government should work towards the introduction of the digital product passport to ensure that the information it contains is “clear, comprehensible and helpful for consumers”. In addition, the prerequisites must be created to place the necessary product information on packaging by means of QR codes, the draft states.

trade-e-bility already reported in connection with the “Right to Repair” that MEPs are calling for possible smart labelling tools such as QR codes or digital product passports.

Now the Bundestag informs that the CDU/CSU union parliamentary group demands with a motion (20/2341) to make consumer information more reliable and relevant. Evidently, the aim is to promote conscious purchasing decisions. The MEPs also urge, among other things, to revise the Consumer Information Act (Verbraucherinformationsgesetz, VIG) and to present a nationwide uniform overall concept for a “coherent transparency system”.

At the European level, the Federal Government should work towards the introduction of the digital product passport to ensure that the information it contains is “clear, comprehensible and helpful for consumers”. In addition, the prerequisites must be created to place the necessary product information on packaging by means of QR codes, the draft states. The CO2 footprint of products should also be established within the framework of the sustainability label, the Union demands.
