In August 2022, the European Commission proposed Ecodesign and energy label requirements for smartphones and tablets.
New measures are expected to make our devices longer lasting, easier to repair and help citizens identify the best-performing models.
The proposed rules are expected to apply to all phones and tablets sold in Europe from 2024 onwards. Before the measures are adopted, a consultation is open until 28 September 2022 to get your opinion of the proposals.
The European Right to Repair campaign and the Coolproducts campaign have summarised what the proposal could mean for your devices and the repair community.
