Circular Economy: Council adopts position on a directive that enshrines consumers’ right to repair

Your substances


The Council has today adopted its position (or 'negotiating mandate') on a proposed directive on common rules promoting the repair of goods, also known as the right-to-repair (or R2R) directive. The proposed text aims to remove obstacles that discourage consumers from seeking repair, such as inconvenience, lack of transparency or difficult access to repair services.

The mandate clarifies manufacturers' repair obligations, limits the requirement to provide information on repair services to those that have a legal obligation to fix defective products, promotes a European online repair platform and introduces an extension of the liability period of the seller in case of repair.
