Will the Digital Product Passport become mandatory throughout Europe?

Yes, the Digital Product Passport will become mandatory for the majority of products and services placed on the market within the EU. Companies placing products on the French market are already creating DPPs to ensure compliance with French Decree 2022-748. This will come into force in France between 2023 and 2025. An EU-wide introduction of DPPs is expected from 2026 across Europe, when the requirements of the EU ESPR for various product groups are defined.
