What is the expected impact on manufacturers, retailers and consumers in GB following the entry into force of the Ecodesign for Energy-Related Products and Energy Information Regulations 2021 (the ‘Right to Repair’ Regulations) from 1 July 2021?
The Right to Repair Regulations are intended to incorporate in the GB market, post-Brexit, the technical requirements of equivalent EU regulations. By reinforcing consumer rights, these regulations aim to benefit the environment by extending the lifecycle of certain energy-related products such as fridges and televisions. They also contribute to the creation of a circular economy in both the EU and the UK.
While industry reaction to the introduction of this regulations has generally been positive, some criticism has been levelled at the final regulations due to their long statutory review periods and the fact that they are not intended to ensure consumers can repair their own products but rather that they can be professionally repaired, which may lead to high costs for product owners.
In our latest article, Environment PSL Andrea Muirhead provides an analysis of the Right to Repair Regulations, considering the background to the regulations, the policy behind their introduction, the changes they bring about and the expected practical implications. She also provides more information on the industry reaction.
