What is the DPP?

The new „Digital Product Passport“ will provide information on the environmental sustainability of products. This information will be easily accessible by scanning a data carrier and will include attributes such as the durability and reparability, the recycled content or the availability of spare parts of a product. It is intended to help consumers and businesses make informed decisions when purchasing products, facilitate repairs and recycling and improve transparency about the impact of products on the environment during their life cycle. The product passport should also help the authorities to better carry out checks and inspections.
