On 30 May 2024, the Council of the European Union adopted a directive promoting the right of consumers to repair broken or defective goods, also known as the Right-to-Repair (R2R) Directive. This directive amends Regulation (EU) 2017/2394, as well as Directive (EU) 2019/771 and Directive (EU) 2020/1828.

The directive enters into force on the twentieth day following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union, after which member states will have 24 months to apply it.
