How will the new “right to repair” regulations impact on manufacturers of household appliances?
In March 2021, the Government announced new ecodesign and energy efficiency regulations for a range of appliances. These requirements have just been introduced in the EU under the latest ecodesign directive, and post-Brexit the UK has drawn up its own draft legislation to ensure that UK products meet the same high standards as those in the rest of Europe. See Ecodesign — ISO 14006: 2020.
The draft Ecodesign for Energy-Related Products and Energy Information Regulations 2021 will apply in England, Wales and Scotland. (The EU legislation will apply in Northern Ireland.)
